“I just finished my 12th year in the NFL and I was blessed to have a great career,” Thomas Jones told AllHipHop.com. “I’m healthy, I’m walking, I’m not hurt anywhere besides a couple minor things here and there, [but] for the most part, I’ve got my mind right physically…This music is something I’ve had a passion for”
