151222-jj-950Green Bay Packers WR James Jones was featured last weekend on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown.

ESPN’s Michelle Beisner interviewed Jones, who talked about growing up homeless and his journey to the NFL.

“Motel to motel, homeless shelter to homeless shelter, park benches some nights. It was very different; something that I would never want a kid to experience,” Jones said. “Going through all of that, my only motivation as a little kid was to get my mom out of that situation one day.”
