Greg Jones is happy his team won the Super Bowl (and that he got engaged)

Via @SpartanJerseys
Former Spartans Devin Thomas and Greg Jones were a part of the Super Bowl-winning New York Giants, albeit a small part, as they mostly play on special teams (though Thomas recovered two fumbles in the NFC Championship) Still, congrats to both.

Last year. Jones got a Big Ten championship ring, now he'll get a Super Bowl ring.

UPDATE: Greg Jones got engaged last night. This tweet from Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich let the world know first. Per's Mike Garafolo, Jones had a practice squad tight end hold the ring during the game, and Jones popped the question to former MSU women's basketball player Mandy Piechowski on the field after the game with confetti all around. Here's ESPN New York's story, with quotes and a photo gallery of the proposal. Very cool. Congrats to Greg.

UPDATE AGAIN: Now there's a video of the proposal. Well, actually right after she said yes, it looks like.

  1. jones is on special teams

  2. Don't think the Giants make it to the Super Bowl without Devin Thomas fumble recoveries in playoff game. Special teams sometime make the difference, don't usually get much glory. Good for Greg & Devin.
