When Cyrus Jones was asked where he got the kind of moves that resulted in his 57-yard punt return, he went back to his “favorite player growing up.”
All the way back to ... 2012.
“My favorite player growing up was Tavon Austin ...”
Excuse me? Third-year NFL player Tavon Austin? The 24-year-old Tavon Austin?
Forgetting for a second that Austin is only a couple years older than Jones, how is this possible? We thought maybe he’d say Deion Sanders or Devin Hester.
Oh God, it’s 2016 and current college players grew up watching Tavon Austin and we’re so old.
