DJ Jones ready to ‘dominate’ for Denver Broncos defense

Hello, Bronco country!

We all know the hit move of George Paton and the Denver Broncos.

And it still never gets old to mention this franchise-altering trade. But there is another off-season move that could drastically impact the other side of the ball.

The addition of defensive tackle DJ Jones. What he brings to the Broncos’ run defense is undeniable. But he wants to become more of an all-around defensive tackle.

“Dominate here,” Jones told the media this week of what he wants to accomplish in Denver. “I feel like I left my mark in San Francisco, but I think it’s time to bring that here and help this community and help this team. I’m here to do whatever it takes. that they need me.

To become a more complete player, Jones knows what he needs to improve.

“Move quickly,” he said. “I want to go over five sacks, and I think this is the perfect pattern to do that. It’s the perfect group of guys to work with and improve in this area.

Jones not only has high expectations for himself, but for Denver’s defensive line.

“We can be the best D-line in the NFL as long as we continue to work hard, stay healthy and support each other,” he said. “We can be the best.”

Of course, it helps to face players like Russell Wilson every day in training. This can help prepare the Broncos defense for what’s to come this season when they face the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

“He’s definitely setting us up for this with a mobile quarterback,” Jones said. “It’s not like he’s just standing in the pocket. He does what he does. He’s out there scrambling and making plays, so that will definitely prepare us.

At least for Jones, he’s thrilled to finally be able to call Wilson a teammate.

“He’s exactly what I thought he was,” Jones said. “He did something in practice the other days, and everyone was like, ‘This isn’t real.’ “Yeah, he does. That’s what he’s doing. He’s making time and he’s giving time on offense. He’s going to make a nice throw, and it’s probably going to be a touchdown.

The other aspect Jones can help Denver with is managing and managing the new expectations. With the addition of Wilson, the Broncos know it’s time to get this franchise back into competition for the Super Bowl.

“Winning comes with not caring about winning and just caring about your group and your team,” Jones said. “We won (in San Francisco) because we were a family and because we were in that locker room and on the field – we were tight. Everyone trusted each other. It’s something we’re building here. It’s something that already exists here, but you can always improve.
