I know Mark Spector thinks that Chris Jones is such a horrible person (he apparently kicks puppies and rapes goats for fun), but it's my understanding that he signed a 4-year deal with the Elks.


The four-year deal is significant, as Jones left bad tastes in the mouth of many fans as he left Edmonton right after the 2015 Grey Cup win to take the reins with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He then joined the coaching staff of the NFL's Cleveland Browns before joining the Toronto Argonauts as a defensive consultant.

He promised he would not only work to rebuild the Elks, but to meet with high-school coaches and build the sport in the community. As for maybe going back to the NFL one day?

"I've been to Disney World, and I'm glad I am right here."

He received an enthusiastic welcome from Ian Murray, the chair of the Elks' board of governors.

Still to this day my only player jersey from the CFL.

I loved how he played, how he led, how he carried himself/spoke, his style and what he represented.

Enjoy retirement good sir!
