Mayfield also wrote a letter Gov. Kevin Stitt on May 28 asking to review Jones' case. Jones was suspected of killing an Oklahoma resident and was convicted of first-degree murder. Jones has maintained his innocence throughout the entire process. Among the other notable sports figures supporting Jones are NBA stars Trae Young and Blake Griffin.
