Baltimore, MD (October 8, 2014) – Today, Under Armour announced the addition of Jermaine Jones to its roster of world-class athletes. The hard-charging central midfielder is coming off a stellar performance for the US Men's National Team in Brasil and recently joined the New England Revolution of MLS.
