Sean Jones, 1994 Coke Monsters of the Gridiron (Halloween Week No. 1)

Name: Sean Jones, aka Ghost
Team: Scream Bay Packers
Position: Defensive end
Fright value of card: Four soiled bandages
Key 1994 splat: One confused photographer
Welcome to Halloween Week: Run! It's a ... ghost? Or a mummy? It's all very confusing. Maybe not as confusing as having a 270-pound defensive lineman dress up as some sort of monster to begin with, but still. The poor Coke photographer had a totally scary see-through sheet with eyeholes for Sean Jones — except that Jones showed up in a homemade mummy outfit. "Uh, Mr. Jones," the photog said, "we've got your ghost costume all ready for you." Jones only scoffed. "Please," he said, "I think I know what a ghost looks like. I've been to Tulsa." Now completely bewildered, the photographer decided it best to just go ahead with the shoot. "OK, act like a ghost, Mr. Jones." Jones started stumbling slowly around the studio, knocking over lights and groaning. The photog then informed Jones that such behavior was more mummylike than ghostly. Jones, now enraged, began chasing the photographer around the studio, eventually catching him and tearing off one of his arms. Sean Jones retired from professional football in 1997.
