A Datone Jones Mother’s Day For The Ages

Mother’s Day gifts consist of flowers, heartfelt cards, scented candles, or spending quality time with family. Datone Jones, however, took things to a new level yesterday.

The Minnesota Vikings’ free agent acquisition, who signed with the team this offseason, bought his mother an unforgettable Mother’s Day gift this year. According to Jones’ Twitter feed, the defensive tackle purchased his mom a house for Mother’s Day.

According to Tommy Armstrong on Twitter, the Minnesota Vikings will not sign the former Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback to the 90-man roster.

Armstrong participated in the Vikings’ recent rookie minicamp, where he shifted from quarterback to running back, and then again to safety.

Despite being recruited as a safety out of high school, Armstrong became a decorated signal-caller in college. He finished his Cornhuskers career first in Nebraska history in passing yards (8,871) and touchdowns (67). Armstrong is a natural athlete that should latch on with another NFL team before training camp begins in August.
