With training camps up and running in the NFL, the annual rituals of rookie hazing has begun.
Veterans often make rookies perform a variety of services, whether that be bringing the older players food, to performing in talent shows.

Jones was taken in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft with the No. 37 pick overall. Jones started 13 games for Mississippi State last season, as he racked up 44 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He joins a Chiefs team that has gone to the playoffs in two of the past three seasons. The Chiefs beat the Houston Texans in the first round of the playoffs last season, but lost to the New England Patriots the following week.
Mississippi State opens their season on Sept. 3 against South Alabama.
