NFL Combine: MSU's Greg Jones has talked to Lions
INDIANAPOLIS -- Greg Jones thought about leaving Michigan State a year ago, but has no regrets about his decision to wait.
“It was a family decision. We weren’t initially all on the same page, it took us a while we went back and forth to make a decision. Once we all came together to come back my senior year that’s what we stayed with,’’ Jones said. Jones said he will do all the workouts at the NFL Combine. He is ranked as the eighth best inside linebacker in the draft by the National Football Post.
He said he talked to the Detroit Lions at the Senior Bowl.
The decision to wait until this year to come out could cost him financially because of a potential new NFL rookie wage scale. But it doesn’t matter.
“I don’t regret anything, I hold true dearly to myself that I won a Big Ten championship, not too many people in the world that can ever say that. I’m very happy and proud to be a part of that with my teammates for everybody. I’m more mature than I was then. I feel very strong about my decision,’’ Jones said.
