Braves Announcers Think Former NFL WR Jacoby Jones is Playing for the Tigers

As far as we know, there is only one former NFL player trying to play Major League Baseball — Tim Tebow. Someone might want to relay that information over to Atlanta Braves announcers Chip Caray and Joe Simpson, who had quite the spring training moment Monday night by confusing former Ravens WR Jacoby Jones with the Tigers’ JaCoby Jones.

As you can see below, Chip and Joe ran with this NFL to MLB narrative for an obscene amount of time:

What a story it would be if former Raven Jacoby Jones were slashing .333/.391/.548 in an effort to land the Tigers’ starting CF gig, but alas, he is not. In fact, Jacoby is a making sadder transition these days… the NFL to the National Arena League.

Chip and Joe eventually realized they effed up:

Yup. All my fault! Glad I caught it before we left air. Hahaha https://t.co/sPZPauDWFo
