Former Ravens Professional Bowl receiver Jacoby Jones had the chance to announce Baltimore’s first choose of the third spherical on the NFL Draft in Cleveland on Friday. Naturally, he took the chance to taunt the hometown followers.
The 2012 Professional Bowler and Tremendous Bowl 47 champion danced his method onto the stage amid boos from Browns followers. He took their jeers in stride and delivered it again to them fantastically:
“Hey, look, let me inform y’all one thing: Y’all can boo all you need, however you bought to just accept it: I obtained a hoop,” Jones mentioned. “I obtained a hoop. I obtained a hoop. It’s what it’s.”
The Browns have not gained an NFL title since 1964 — and have by no means gained the Tremendous Bowl.
After the good-natured ribbing, Jones delivered the choose: Georgia guard Ben Cleveland. The Browns may need wished the previous Bulldog merely for his final title, however the Ravens are hoping he protects quarterback Lamar Jackson in 2021 and past.
Jones wasn’t the one celeb choose announcer to elicit boos from the gang. Professional Soccer Corridor of Fame operating again Franco Harris drew some ire after waving his facemask like a Horrible Towel shortly earlier than saying the number of Penn State tight finish Pat Freiermuth. Hip-hop group Run-D.M.C. even had a rap able to go earlier than saying Pittsburgh’s 87th general choice, middle Kendrick Inexperienced of Iowa.
Gotta love how these divisional rivalries final into the NFL Draft — even with a workforce as historically downtrodden because the Browns.
