Former Defenders QB Cardale Jones Starts NIL Venture

According to The Spun’s Alex Arend, former Defenders QB Cardale Jones has started his own baselines aimed at helping student athletes take advantage of the new NIL rule in college sports.

Jones’ business – Ten Talents NIL – will offer expertise in business opportunities for those still in college to help make the most of the new rule that began July 1st.

“[They will] offer management, legal counsel, marketing, and crisis communications expertise to student athletes.”

The former National Champion Ohio State QB will now be able to help those athletes navigate the world of the NIL process, something he could’ve made a lot of money at while he was in school.

“Cardale Jones led Ohio State to a national championship in 2014 and bounced around the NFL for a few years. He played for the XFL’s DC Defenders last season and now wants to get involved with NIL as an advisor.

Jones is starting an agency called Ten Talents NIL, which will offer “management, legal counsel, marketing, and crisis communications expertise to student athletes.”

Jones testified on behalf of the change in the anriauated NCAA rules at several Ohio-nased hearings, helping advance the ruling that has ultimately changed the face of how college athletes take advantage of the multibillion dollar industry like profits off the work its players do on and off the field.

Jones was QB3 on the 2014-2015 depth chart, but got his 1st start in the Big Ten title game, after starter JT Barret was lost to injury. He went on to win MVP honors.

He then beat Alabama in the 1st round of the College Football Playoffs, and the Oregon Ducks to take home the title for the Buckeyes in 2015,

Jones was a 4th round pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 2016 draft, but also played for the LA Chargers, and made the offseason camp for the Seattle Seahawks before joining the DC Defenders.
