They say Jacoby Jones is in pretty good shape coming off his "Dancing With the Stars" gig---and why not, as we have discovered how hard these pro dancers really work at their routines.
Fresh off his third-place finish on “Dancing With The Stars,” Jones is getting back into the swing of things in the Ravens’ up-tempo practices. Ryan Mink of Ravens.com got the latest word from Jones:
He said he felt “pretty good” after Wednesday’s session, but is working his way back.
“My conditioning is good and I’m not sore,” he said. “I’ve just got to get my legs back under me, football wise. It’s not like dancing. I still don’t feel like me. In a week, I’ll feel like me.”
Jones missed the Ravens’ voluntary strength and conditioning program and one week of OTAs. He said his teammates didn’t give him a hard time on his return. They were happier to see him more than anything so he could run some of the go routes, Jones quipped.
Jones was his usual self in the locker room, laughing with teammates and being his outgoing, goofy self. It was as if he never left.
“It feels good to get back with my teammates, my brothers,” he said. “Even though ‘Dancing With The Stars’ was fun, I'm back in my element."
And for those Ravens fans who are still blaming Joe Flacco's big new contract for the housecleaning of older players and free agents that went on in Baltimore this past Sping, here is a must-read which provides a better understanding of the global situation:
Lots of fans have cried that we've cut so many players this offseason because of Flacco's $120.6 million contract. Let's put this to rest since it ISN'T TRUE. (Real dollars aren't salary cap dollars.)
