decided to resign with the Packers, despite receiving significant interest from a number of other NFL teams.

Jones was a big piece of the puzzle for the Packers defense last season after both Desmond Bishop and D.J. Smith were lost to season-ending injuries.  Jones played alongside A.J. Hawk in the Packers base defense and it was Jones that served as the lone linebacker in the dime.  Jones’ final numbers were 77 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 4 pass break-ups in 12-games.

Jones was a 7th round draft pick in the 2009 NFL draft by the Packers out of Colorado.
