2013

Jones rotated in along on the offensive line at a few positions during his rookie season in 2012. That versatility will come in handy again this coming season, though the Texans view him as their starting center long-term.

2012

Jones, a fourth-round draft pick in 2012, will be groomed to be Houston's next starting center, but will also get experience at guard.
