CFL Star Tyrone Jones Lands on the DNR

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

Tyrone Jones, a linebacker who helped the Winnipeg Blue Bombers capture two Grey Cup titles during his eight-year tenure with the CFL club, has died. He was 46. Jones, who starred at Southern University, died in his native Georgia on Tuesday morning. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2005.

"This is a very sad day, however we need to remember and celebrate the person of Tyrone Jones; the player of Tyrone Jones and the human being that was Tyrone Jones," said Bombers president Lyle Bauer, a former teammate of Jones. "He made a huge, huge impact on this football team and this league."
