TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - How did a 10-year NFL linebacker produce a pair of top college wide receivers?

That's a good question? Robert Jones won three Super Bowls playing in the middle of the Dallas Cowboys defense in the early 1990s, but his sons Cayleb and Isaiah are hoping to follow in their dad's footsteps to the NFL as pass catchers.

Cayleb Jones returns for his junior season at Arizona as the Wildcats top target for sophomore Anu Solomon.

Jones caught 73 passes last season for 1,019 yards and nine touchdowns despite playing much of the last quarter half of 2014 with a broken hand.

Jones comes from a long line of football stock. His uncle Jeff Blake spent 14 seasons in the NFL as a quarterback.

His brother Isaiah caught 81 passes last season as a sophomore at their dad's alma mater East Carolina.

His cousin Emory Blake played wide receiver at Auburn and has spent parts of the last two seasons on the St. Louis Rams practice squad.

The good news for dad Robert according to Cayleb is that the youngest Jones brother Levi, does play defense.

He's a junior linebacker/defensive back at Westlake High School in Austin, Texas and according to the recruiting site 24/7 Sports, currently has college scholarship offers from Kansas and ECU.
