Detroit Lions players are filing into Lambeau Field for a big showdown on Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers. Some use the stroll into the stadium to show off their latest fashion, wearing expensive suits or designer clothing.

Jones is from Mississippi, and he was recently telling the media and his teammates in the locker room about the amount of cows he owns and his trucking company. So this isn’t an act. This is who he is when he’s away from football—and apparently when he’s at his football job now, too.
Who wore it better?
