  • Three-time Pro Bowl selection (2015, '17 and '19) and two-time first-team All-Pro (2017 and '19) has played 119 regular season games (116 starts), recording 461 tackles, 96.0 sacks, 27 forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries, one INT and 25 passes defensed.
  • In April of 2020, named to the 2010-19 All-Decade Team by the Pro Football Hall of Fame's 48-member selection committee.
  • One of six NFL defenders to earn multiple first-team All-Pro selections in the last three seasons (2017-19). Became the fifth defender – and first LB – in Cardinals history to be named a first-team All-Pro multiple times.
  • Leads the NFL in sacks (96.0) and forced fumbles (27) since entering the league in 2012. Just five players in NFL history had more sacks in their first eight seasons than Jones. Leads the NFL and ranks second in franchise history with 60.0 sacks since joining the Cardinals in 2016. Also tied for second in the league with 66 tackles for loss and 17 forced fumbles during that span.
  • Had 13.0+ sacks in each of the last three seasons (2017-19), trailing only Pro Football Hall of Famer Reggie White (four) for the most consecutive 13.0-sack campaigns in NFL history. Only player in the NFL with 10.0+ sacks in each of the last five seasons (2015-19) and the first player in Cardinals history with at least four 10.0+ sack campaigns (2016-19).
  • Earned Pro Bowl, first-team All-Pro (AP, PFWA, Sporting News) and NFC Defensive Player of the Year (NFL Committee of 101) honors after establishing a single-season franchise record with 19.0 sacks (second in the NFL) and setting career highs with eight forced fumbles (tied for first) and seven strip-sacks (first) in 2019. Became the third NFL player – first since Reggie White (1986) – to post 4.0+ sacks in multiple games in a season.
  • Earned a Pro Bowl selection and first-team All-Pro (AP, PFWA, Sporting News) honors after leading the NFL with 17.0 sacks in 2017. Jones, who became the first Cardinal to ever lead the league in sacks, also led the NFL in tackles for loss (28) and QB hits (38) that season. Named the Deacon Jones Award winner for leading the NFL in sacks.
