The 25-year-old showed up in overalls, but not just any kind of overalls.
Jones didn’t wear a shirt under the overalls, and they were just the length of a pair of shorts, running to just his mid-thigh. On top of this eye-popping outfit, Jones finished off the look with a cowboy hat and cowboy boots.
Fans instantly recognized how Jones may have been paying homage to former Patriots tackle Vince Wilfork, who famously showed up to a game in a set of denim overalls. The look also makes a bit more sense upon learning that Jones owns a farm in his home state of Mississippi with various animals, such as cattle.
Jones’s look quickly went viral, with NFL fans having plenty of funny reactions to the outfit. Even the Lions social media page posted about the outfit.

When you know the man owns a farm with 65 cows and a trucking company in Mississippi, it makes a little more sense. https://t.co/RIeDcEGju2— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) September 28, 2023
