Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Levi Jones told the Arizona Republic columnist Bob Young that his “health is good” and that playing for his hometown Cardinals “would be the ultimate goal.”
“I definitely would want to play here (Arizona). That would be the ultimate goal. I don’t fully know what their situation is at tackle or what their needs are. It’s in God’s hands. I’d love to come home, but wherever I’m called, that’s where I’ve got to go. it’s the nature of this league.”
“My health is good. A lot of people thought it was my knee last year, but i it was actually my right leg. I had a lot of scar tissue up and down my right leg that caused it do go numb. I got that operated on this year and I’m good. I’m here in the Valley working out at API every day.”
Reports surfaced weeks before the draft that the Bengals were looking to move Jones, and his agent, Kenny Zuckerman, said they were told that if a trade couldn’t be worked out by draft day, Jones would be released. Following the draft, reports were confused on what the Bengals’ plans are for Jones.
