Couple days late with this one. On Friday, Chicago Bears Hall of Famer Stan Jones passed away at the age of 78. We briefly profiled Jones last year as a member of the BearsHistory.com Chicago Bears Ring of Honor.
Jones was most notable for two things: being a pioneering NFL player in terms of weightlifting, and he also played on both the offensive and defensive lines throughout his career.
Our condolences to Jones’ family.
