Jones, 27, tried out for the acclaimed singing competition this summer. The episode won't air until next spring, but ESPN posted a clip from the show on Wednesday.
The wide receiver picked the song "I Can't Make You Love Me."
"Why didn't you pursue music and why did you pursue [football]?," Perry asked.
"He ran a 4.3 [40 yard dash]," singer and judge Luke Bryan said.
Jones actually ran a 4.46 at the NFL scouting combine. The Cincinnati Bengals drafted Jones in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
"I could have done it earlier on, but I was playing sports so...," Jones responed. Jones said his Lions teammates didn't know he was a singer. The 6 foot 2, 198 pound pass catcher has 537 yards and five touchdowns on 34 receptions this season. Jones joined the Lions in 2016. He signed a five-year, $40 million contract in 2016. But Jones might not be the "Songbird of the NFL."
