Jones seems more interested in learning more about Beckham’s mother, Heather Van Norman.
«I had a very impressive conversation with the most important of all this proposition, his mother,» Jones told Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. «It was really easy for me to see where Odell [Beckham] has many of its advantages. She was very impressive. You can see where she gets a lot of the stuff that she has.»
