Let's take a moment to appreciate Donnie Jones. The Philadelphia Eagles punter re-signed with the team this offseason after originally signing a one-year deal in 2013. Jones is back and he's appeared to be in top form during training camp.
So far no other than "because we can", let's celebrate Donnie Jones. We'll do that by look at some of his tweets from the @Eagles Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon. Here are the highlights.
No. I started punting in middle school b/c I didn't like hitting in fball RT @ZachOtte: Did you ever play soccer to get a boot like that??— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) July 30, 2014
Some may say soft, but I say smart.
Donnie hit a 70 yarder last year so I'd say he's still got it.
...and Julie Dorenbos.
Zeee-ro. I was the guy they put in last minute when we were losing. -DLB RT @slando24: being 6"2 you have any basketball talent?— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) July 30, 2014
Backup quarterback. Nice salary. No pressure. -DLB RT @neve33: if you could play in other position, which would you choose & why??— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) July 30, 2014
...like I said: smart.
I personally think Donnie Football is still the best. DLB doesn't do it for me but whatever.
Love Donnie campaigning for free beer from the @Eagles account.
All right, time to get better. Thanks for hanging out with me. I may have to get a Twitter sometime. Go Eagles. #DonnieLongBall— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) July 30, 2014
OK, we need to make this Donnie Jones football twitter thing happen.
