Cardale Jones Responds To Idea That He's A "Poor Man's" JaMarcus Russell

ESPN's First Take discussed former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones today. Specifically, Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless talked about Jones' NFL prospects.

Here's the full segment. 

Jones was apparently watching some of that segment and responded to the thoughts on Twitter.

">@stephenasmith got my back would love to have a personal conversation about these last couple topics & statements made about me.
