As an energetic NFL player, Jones was a 7-time All-Pro selection and ultimate NFL 2000s All-Decade Team honoree. In 2005, he helped his team to reach Super Bowl XL. A year later, Sporting News ranked him 1st on the list of the 101 Best NFL Players. Jones was a 7-time All-Pro and a 9-time Pro Bowl selection. He was recognized by NFL coaches John Madden and Mike Holmgren as probably the best left tackle and best offensive player they had ever coached. 

Just like many other American football players, Jones suffered from serious injuries from time to time. On April 2010, Jones made an announcement via his Twitter account stating that he intended to retire. A day later, the Seahawks made an announcement of the retirement of his number, 71. Jones’s number is the 3rd player number to be retired by the club. Christine Gregoire, Washington’s governor, declared April 30 to be ‘Walter Jones Day”.

Jones, who was brought up by a single mother, had a pretty rough childhood. His mother could only afford to buy one pair of shoes to his 8 children, one at a time. Today, Jones is one of the richest sportsmen in the world, with an estimated net worth of $66 million.  He derived much of his wealth from his career as a professional footballer. His career lasted for 13 seasons, from the year 1997 to 2010.
