LOOK: Cardale Jones, who once said, 'We ain't come here to play SCHOOL,' graduates
The Bills QB and new Ohio State graduate has grown up a lot since his freshman year
Funny story: Back in October 2012, when Jones was a backup on the Ohio State football team, he tweeted, "Why should we have to go to class if we come here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS."
In Jones' defense, he followed that up 2Â½ years later with these series of tweets:
faith and family, NOTHING is more important then education #StudentBeforeAthlete ðð— Cardale Jones (@Cardale7_) April 2, 2015
It's only a lesson if you learned from it— Cardale Jones (@Cardale7_) April 2, 2015
A year ago, Jones was drafted in the fourth round by the Bills, and he spent the 2016 season playing behind Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel. Jones attempted only 11 passes all year, but he heads into training camp as Taylor's backup and -- more important -- a college graduate.
