Catching Up: Former U-M LB Dhani Jones

Dhani Jones is on television, traveling the world, creating businesses, helping Michigan defensive tackle Mike Martin and promoting bow ties.

After he retired after an 11-year NFL career in October, Jones set out to focus more on everything else he has wanted to do with his life.
