Henry Jones (1991 – 2000)
Henry Jones was a first-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in the 1991 NFL Draft. The Bills selected him with the 26th overall pick, out of Illinois. He would go on to play ten years with the Bills and retired after the 2002 season.
Jones currently sits in a tie for 15th on the Bills all-time interception leaders, with 18. During his time with the Bills, he also racked up 663 total tackles. He became one of the best safeties to ever put on the Bills uniform.
Jones was an integral part of the Bills defensive success in the early 90s when he inherited the starting role from another Bills great Leonard Smith. Jones’ first season as the starting safety was 1992, his second year on the team. During that 1992 season, he pulled in a league leading eight interceptions and also led the league in interception return yardage with 263. Additionally, he scored two touchdowns that season.
Despite his performances year in and year out, he was voted to only one Pro Bowl in his career, as well as one first-team All-Pro nod. He accomplished both in that same 1992 season. He spent his last two years in the league with the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons, before retiring from the NFL.
