Cyrus Jones Introduced with Patriots: ‘It’s A Dream Come True’
The New England Patriots introduced former Alabama cornerback to the media on Friday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
The second round pick was the team's first selection of the draft, and Jones said it was a dream come true.
"I wouldn't want to be anywhere else," Jones told reporters. "It's a dream come true to be in the best program in the National Football League."
The two-year starter for Nick Saban at Alabama signed with the Patriots on Thursday after being selected 60th overall one week ago. The team announced that he would wear the jersey number 24, which holds significance in the organization. Two of the team's top defensive backs to ever play in New England, Ty Law and Darrelle Revis, both wore the same number.
Jones was one of seven former Alabama players selected in the first three rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft.
