George Dee Jones (born December 31, 1973 in Greenville, South Carolina) is a former professional American football running back in the National Football League.

Jones had a rather marginal career during his three seasons in the NFL. He made his NFL debut during the 1997 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, serving as a halfback for most of the season while Tim Lester was on injured reserve. The following season, he was released by the Steelers and moved on to the Jacksonville Jaguars before finishing his career with the expansion Cleveland Browns in 1999.[1]
