Arizona Cardinals head coach call Las Vegas Raiders DE Chandler Jones, “Cerebral”
Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Chandler Jones got off to good start as a Raider, booking two solo tackles including one tackle for loss and one quarterback hit in the 24-19 loss against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Ahead of the Week 2 matchup against Jones former team, the Arizona Cardinals, his former head coach gave his respect toward Jones, calling him “cerebral.”
“I think he’s obviously a freak when you talk physicality,” Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said via Raiders.com. “A unique, special talent in this regard. He is always thinking about the next play, how he will beat a guy, and his hand placement. He is very cerebral. He puts a lot of effort into his mindset and how he approaches it mentally every day. “
Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will be hoping not to get hit by Jones this weekend. He says Jones is creative in his methods of getting to him.

“He’s a student of the game. Murray stated that he loves it. He’s a kind of Zen master when it comes down to pass rushing and the various ways to get to the quarterback. He is a great teacher for new pass rushers. I was able to see a small part of it at the Pro Bowl. “
It should be a fun game to see Jones take on his old team.
