... football player and has a booming personality.  Along with his bow tie suits, he seems just like an overall fun guy.

An NFL linebacker, fashion entrepreneur, environmental philanthropist, community volunteer, and all-around Renaissance man, Dhani Jones now includes Travel Channel host on his lengthy resume.

A travel eccentric, Dhani has incorporated two of his greatest passions, travel and sports, for his television show Dhani Tackles the Globe, where he tours the world and explores the ways in which traditional sports help to characterize the culture.

Dhani is probably better known for his career in the NFL, where, over the previous eight years, he has played for the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles and, at the moment, the Cincinnati Bengals.

Off the field, Dhani usually can be found dressed in one of his signature bow ties. In fact, he founded Five Star Ties in 2005, his own line of men’s accessories.
