Jean-Gilles returns for his second season with the Portland Thunder after starting every single game last season on the offensive line for the team. Jean-Gilles was chosen in the fourth round of the NFL Draft with the 99th overall pick by the Philadelphia Eagles. On July 10, 2006, Jean-Gilles signed a four-year contract with the Eagles. After the Eagles, he made stops with the Bengals and Panthers before moving to the indoor game. His first season of arena football experience came by way of the Lincoln Haymakers of the Champions Professional Indoor Football League. After that season, Jean-Gilles signed with the Portland Thunder.
Jean-Gilles earned First Team All-SEC and All-American honors as a senior at Georgia and was a key member of the offensive line that helped lead Georgia to an SEC Championship victory in 2005. He was part of a Bulldogs class that set a school record with 44 victories and was teammates with former number one overall pick Matthew Stafford.
