Fantastic DaQuan Jones interview

I’m surprised this hasn’t been posted yet. Great interview between DaQuan and Jim Rome:

 


His two reasons for joining the Bills:

- Opportunity to win a championship

- Time to come home (from Johnson City, NY)

 

This was a sneaky good signing. Like a more consistent Star Lotulelei. Won’t show up on the stat sheet but he’ll help stop the run, eat up blockers to free up second level rushers, and best of all has a history of being AVAILABLE.

A buddy of mine married a girl from Johnson City. That whole area of NY out near Albany feels like it stopped in 1978 or something. Everything felt so outdated when I went out there for their engagement party.

I rented a rehearsal space for a band in Johnson City a few years ago at something called NY Penn Trade Center. One of the guys in the band was Breaking Benjamins former drummer. He lives in northern PA so we met halfway in Johnson City. It is an absolute scumhole, it's exactly as you described, it's like the land that time forgot. The toilet in the building looked like it hadn't been flushed in 30 years. I have pictures, but I'm sure you don't want to see them LOL.

I mean, Johnson City is a good 140 miles from Albany, but OK.

Johnson City is just West of Binghamton, much closer to Scranton PA than to Albany. Binghamton/Johnson City/Endicott are called the Triple Cities.

This is different from Buffalo how?   Or Rochester or Erie or St Catherines/Hamilton or anywhere in Bills country.

He's a better player than that traffic cone Star Lotulelei...........but it's a bit rich having a player sign for a very surprisingly large sum and then have him act like this was just a passion project. :rolleyes:    Dude played on 1 year $4M contract in Carolina last year........had a lesser performing season than he had in 2020.........and then got a 2 year deal for $14M with $10M+ gtd.    There wasn't any hometown or ring chasing discount........he is in Buffalo because he got PAID more in Buffalo than he was likely to be paid anywhere else.

Zay Jones signed in Jacksonville because he really likes swamp fishing.

Johnson City, is near Binghamton, which is a few hours, from 21st century, Albany.

I’ve felt that way about every town in western NY since I was in college.

He says it was his heart that made the decision.   His haircut says he wanted to retire a Raider but I guess we will have to take his word for it.

yuxk, only thing worse is Endicott!  (I kid, used to live in Vestal till mid 90’s, I think there was some sort of rivalry). Cool that he is a Southern Tier guy, not many in NFL or even D1.
