Former Maryland and Ohio State linebacker Keandre Jones wasn’t one of the former college stars who was selected during the NFL Draft over the weekend, but he’ll still get the chance to prove he belongs in the league.
After the conclusion of this year’s draft, Jones received an opportunity to sign as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears. He heads to the league after spending the 2019 college football season with the Terrapins.
