Free agent Tony Jefferson plays waiting game as rehabilitation continues

Former Oklahoma safety Tony Jefferson is playing the waiting game.

Since tearing his ACL and LCL midway through the 2019 season, Jefferson has been rehabbing his left knee -- working with a physical therapist until the covid-19 pandemic struck.

“I was really getting into a groove with my workouts and my rehab,” Jefferson told Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. “I was really turning the corner and then, this comes.”

Jefferson attempted to purchase equipment to continue his rehabilitation from his Southern California home, adhering to the states’ stay-at-home orders.

"Most of it is sold out because I guess everybody is trying to use the (in-home) equipment now,” Jefferson explained, via Pro Football Rumors. “I’m waiting two or three weeks just to get a medicine ball.”

Jefferson, 28, is still a free agent after being released by Baltimore Ravens in a salary cap ($14 million) saving move  following three seasons with the team.

“I know that my knee is feeling fine, and I know that I have teams that are ready. I’ve just kind of let my agent do his thing. We’re just waiting for this virus to settle down, and I think something will happen quickly.”

Jefferson could reunite with former Arizona coach Bruce Arians in Tampa Bay speculates Greg Auman of The Athletic.
