Broncos Country mourns the passing of former Denver Broncos offensive lineman and two-time Super Bowl champion, Tony Jones, who passed away today at the age of 54. Rod Smith shared the news on his Instagram account.
He was an integral part of the offensive line that catapulted Terrell Davis and the Broncos to back to back titles in the late 1990s.
Jones entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 188 and played for the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens until 1996. Then in 1997 he was part of Mike Shanahan’s free agent spending spree to get the Broncos into contention quickly during the twilight of John Elway’s playing career.
Jones played for the Broncos for three seasons before retiring after the 2000 season. He was an important part of the offensive line that spearheaded Terrell Davis to 2,000 yards in 1998 and back to back titles.
He will be missed.
