Photos: Colts Defensive Tackle Art Jones Got Married At Syracuse University's Hendricks Chapel

Former Syracuse defensive tackle Art Jones was one of the lone bright spots for the Orange during the Greg Robinson era, in which the Orange won 10 games over four years. Jones was a three-time All-Big East selection (second team in 2007, first team in 2008, 2009) for Syracuse. His 15 total tackles (four tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks) in a 2008 upset of Notre Dame in South Bend is one of the great Syracuse performances in recent memory.

Jones has gone on to a successful NFL career, playing for the Baltimore Ravens and recently signing a five year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, but his heart still remains in Upstate New York. The Endicott native was married on Saturday at Hendricks Chapel on the Syracuse University campus, and numerous former Orange football players and coaches were in attendance.

Art is the oldest brother of what is perhaps the most athletic family in the state of New York. His youngest brother Chandler is also a former Orange defensive lineman and now a stand-out defensive end for the New England Patriots, and the middle Jones brother, Jon, is the UFC's light heavyweight champion and one of the greatest fighters in the world.

Of course, the NFL season is right around the corner, and even on his wedding day, Art couldn't miss a workout.
