Uncharted North: Canadian OL Brett Jones featured in new documentary

Canadian offensive lineman Brett Jones has taken a unique journey to playing in the NFL and it’s going to be the focus of a new documentary: UNCHARTED NORTH: I Am Brett Jones.

The Little Park production company is putting together the feature:

Minnesota Viking centre Brett Jones walked a path from the cold Canadian midwest, through injuries and trades, to playing for one of the most storied franchises in the NFL.

The Weyburn, Saskatchewan native played for the University of Regina where he was an All-Canadian offensive lineman for the Rams. The Calgary Stampeders selected Jones in the second round, 16th overall during the 2013 CFL draft.

After winning the Most Outstanding Rookie and Most Outstanding Lineman awards in successive CFL campaigns (2013 and 2014), Jones inked his initial NFL contract with the New York Giants. Minnesota acquired Jones in a trade during August 2018 with New York in exchange for a 2019 NFL draft pick.

Jones suited up in two games last season and started three games at centre in 2018. The 6-foot-2, 312-pound Jones has played in 46 career NFL games with 17 of those being starts. The 28-year-old has earned over $5 million through his NFL career so far.

It’s time for Jones’ close-up on the big screen.
