The NFL Combine has been shoehorning large football players into progressively skimpy, skin-tight outfits. One-year-ago today the inevitable happened. Mississippi State defensive lineman Chris Jones had a wardrobe malfunction during the 40-yard dash.
SI caught up with Chris Jones on this momentous anniversary. He relived his thoughts in the moment.
“I looked down and the hummer is out,” he says. “I try to cover it up. I’m thinking to myself, ‘little kids are watching.’”
Jones let the incident neither phase nor define him. He had a strong first season for the Kansas City Chiefs.
