I’m thinking, I came all the way here and got hurt,” he told News Press Now in July 2019. But the Cardinals didn’t give up on him.
“I’m laying in the training room, towel on my head, and this guy from the front office comes down, taps me on the shoulder and says, ‘We were noticing what you were doing out there.’ He told me, ‘I can guarantee you two things: We’re gonna take care of you for this season and you’re gonna come back stronger from this. It’s just gonna depend on the work you put in,'” Jonathan told the site. “I took that to heart.”
