Bio

Marvin Jones is a wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals. Jones set a franchise record when he caught four touchdown passes in a single game.

Early Life

Jones was born on March 12, 1990 in Los Angeles California. He attended Etiwanda High School where he developed his skills on the football field.

California Golden Bears

Jones didn’t see much action as a true freshman at California. As a sophomore he made significant contributions as a wide receiver with 43 receptions for 651 yards and six touchdowns. He would increase his total as a junior racking up 765 receiving yards and four touchdowns. In his best statistical year as a senior he increased his receptions total to 62 with 846 receiving yards. After amassing 2,270 receiving yards at California, Jones became a late draft selection.

Cincinnati Bengals

In the fifth round of the 2012 draft, Jones was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals, who were in search of a WR to serve as a viable threat opposite WR A.J Green. Jones started in more games as a rookie than in his second year but his production was more significant in the latter year. He finished the 2013 season with 10 touchdowns; four of these touchdowns were against the New York Jets in Week 8. Jones hopes to continue where he left off in the 2014 season as the clear No. 2 receiver in Cincinnati.
