Jones, a product of Appalachian State University, had 77 catches for 1156 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 5 rushing touchdowns for the Albany Empire in his rookie season. He was named AFL Rookie of the Year and AFL Receiver of the Year.

It was evident for most of the season that Jones was one of the best players in the league and it was only a matter of time before the National Football League game calling. Jones was a dual threat receiver who could turn 5-yard passes into touchdowns while being fearless catching the deep ball against the boards. His ability to break tackles gave secondaries nightmares. He also could line up the backfield and run through defenders on the goal line.  Jones was one of the most electric players in recent AFL history.
