Draft Scout *Tony Jefferson News
08/01/17 - S Tony Jefferson was limited in team drills over the first week of practice after undergoing sports hernia surgery in the offseason. However, those reps should increase as camp progresses. Jefferson has not shown any ill-effects from the surgery, but coach John Harbaugh was still being cautious. Jefferson is expected to make a big impact in the secondary after being signed as a free agent in the offseason.
01/04/17 - S Tony Jefferson was upset at the low tender offer the Cardinals gave him a year ago as a restricted free agent and he was even more disappointed when he couldn't get a better offer from another team. Not this time around.
"I'm not restricted, that's why," he said. "You never know what's going to happen (in free agency). It's always kind of a tricky thing. But I think this time around will be kind of fun."
12/27/16 - S Tony Jefferson was placed on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday. Jefferson has a sprained knee. Jefferson played in 15 games this season, including 14 starts, and set career highs with 92 tackles and 13 tackles for loss to go along with two sacks, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.
12/01/16 - S Tony Jefferson leads all NFL defensive backs with 11 tackles for loss. According to Stats, Inc., no other defensive back has more than six.
11/10/16 - S Tony Jefferson is having his best season as a pro and his improvement has been ten-fold, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "Just about in every phase," Arians said Wednesday. "Starting with his body chemistry. His body fat was down, his muscle was up. He's leaner, faster. Probably the best shape he's ever been in. He had to assume a leadership role that he didn't have to have before with Rashad (Johnson) and Jerraud (Powers). He's the guy that's the voice back there now, and D.J. (Swearinger), and they're both really coming on and doing a really good job of communicating and taking that leadership role and not being a follower."
