That blunt of a response is a pretty big indictment on how Meyers’ tenure has been going in the NFL so far.
In 2020, Jones had 41 combined tackles, 7 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks for the Broncos.
Jones against the New York Giants in week 1 had a pretty quiet day with just 2 tackles and 1 tackle for loss in the Broncos 27-13 win at MetLife Stadium.
Jacksonville takes on Denver this Sunday at 1:00 ET on CBS in the home opener.
