Former Ohio State defensive lineman gets the bag in NFL free agency

NFL free agency has kicked off and it is always fun to monitor which former Ohio state football stars get paid.

The first day of this free agency period has brought us two memorable names.

We already covered the signing of Vonn Bell to the Carolina Panthers,

but another former Buckeye defensive star is going from the AFC to the NFC as Dre’Mont Jones goes from the Denver Broncos to the Seattle Seahawks.

The latest reports indicate that Dre’Mont Jones will be signing a three-year deal for $52.53 million dollars.

 The deal is frontloaded with Jones receiving $23.5 million during his first season and the remaining $35.02 million over the course of his next two seasons.

Jones was an absolute stud at Ohio State earning Freshman All-American honors ,

and twice earning All-Big Ten before being drafted in the third round of the 2019 NFL draft by the Denver Broncos where he has been a very good defensive tackle.
