“I’m bipolar but I’ve never told nobody anything about my bipolar because I didn’t want it to interfere with nothing else,” he said.
“When I was playing football, I didn’t want to take no medicine because I didn’t want it to take away from my passion for what I was doing,” he continued.
“They were like, ‘Damn, well we can’t help you. He don’t want to take the medicine.’ Hell no I ain’t taking no medicine when I’m playing at the top level and I ain’t ever took this.
“How the hell you gonna tell me to take something when I’m playing at the top level that I’ve ever played at.”
Jones retired from the NFL in 2018.
