Robert William "Rob" Jones (born 3 November 1979 in Stockton-on-Tees, England) is an English footballer who currently plays as a centre back for League One club Sheffield Wednesday.

Having started his career with York City, before playing as a semi-professional for Whitby Town, Northallerton Town, Spennymoor United and Gateshead, he soon moved into The Football League in 2003 with Stockport County. After a brief loan spell with Macclesfield Town, Jones joined Grimsby Town, where his performances in the 2005 06 season earned him a move to Scottish Premier League club Hibernian.

Jones captained Hibs as the club won the 2007 Scottish League Cup Final, in which he scored the opening goal. He moved to Scunthorpe United in 2009 for a club record fee, before signing for Sheffield Wednesday in 2011.
