Jones was joined by Theo Riddick, Marvin Jones Jr., Eric Ebron and Golden Tate in that blue paint to re-create the famous Rockette’s can-can dance.

The synchronization needs a little work, and Riddick needs to lift those legs a little higher, but overall this is another fantastic celebration from the Lions’ skill players. And thanks to the early game, they were able to get the dance in before the rest of the NFL teams play on Sunday.
