Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Finishes season with 31 tackles
Jones finished the 2021 season with 31 tackles (18 solo), 5.5 sacks and one fumble recovery.

The 25-year-old appeared in 16 games this season and is developing into an impact player in Denver. Jones will enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2022, so the 6-foot-3, 281-pounder will look to have another great season before becoming a free agent in 2023.... See More ... See Less

Jones finished the 2020 campaign with 41 tackles, 6.5 sacks and two passes defensed.
