The NY Giants just plucked an offensive lineman from an American Arena League team owned by rap star Jim Jones … and Capo could not be more proud to let him go.
The “We Fly High” rapper is a joint owner of the AAL’s Richmond Roughriders — which have already racked up a 7-1 record this season with a stacked roster, including Greg Hardy.
But the NY Giants had their eye on the other side of the ball … because they just signed 26-year-old offensive lineman Malcolm Bunche — a 6’6″, 320-pounder from UCLA.
“This is a great feeling,” Jones says … “I’m smiling, man. I’m smiling! Smiling! Smiling!”
Jones says everyone in the Roughriders organization is pumped for Bunche — plus, it gives hope for other players trying to get to the NFL.
In fact, Jones says he hopes the AAL can serve as a real feeder league to the pros — putting a spotlight on players who deserve a shot at the next level.
“This shows that it’s very much possible. More than possible.”
