FlashBack: TSU Alum Ed ‘Too Tall’ Jones gets funky

In honor of the NFL draft, we take a moment to celebrate the musical stylings of the first overall pick in 1974, Ed “Too Tall” Jones from Tennessee State University.

Jones, a 6-foot-9, 270-pound defensive end, played for the Cowboys until 1989, with the exception of one year (1979) when he left football to attempt a career as a professional boxer, going 6-0 with five knockouts.

However, he also attempted a career in music, recording an album in 1981.
