  Eagles | Brad Jones signs    Mon Mar 2, 03:44 PM

Free-agent LB Brad Jones (Packers) signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, March 2. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jones will be able to immediately contribute on special teams. However, with the Eagles LB corps in upheaval, Jones could be in the mix for more playing time on defense than some think.

  Packers | Wednesday practice report for Week 5    Wed Oct 1, 02:17 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 5 game. LB Josh Boyd (hamstring) and DE Josh Boyd (knee) both did not practice and are doubtful. LB Brad Jones was limited in practice and is probable. LB Mike Neal (hip) did not practice and is probable. OG T.J. Lang (not injury related) is probable. LB Clay Matthews (groin) fully practiced and is probable.

Footballguys view: Davante Adams is a boom/bust WR3/Flex tomorrow night on this news. He had a long TD on an insane throw from Aaron Rodgers called back by penalty last week, so the big play upside is there in this offense with this quarterback.

OT Bryan Bulaga (knee), CB Davon House (knee), LB Clay Matthews (groin) and LB Nick Perry (wrist) are probable. Boykin didn't practice Friday, Sept. 26. Jones, Matthews and Perry were limited, while the others were full participants. The Packers didn't actually practice Friday, and the designations are an estimation.

Footballguys view: If Boykin is out, rookie Davante Adams will have a chance to become relevant for fantasy leagues because of the Packers high rate of three-wide sets.

Bulaga was limited, while Bostick and Goodson practiced in full.

Footballguys view: Bostick should join the Packers TE rotation, which doesn't offer short term fantasy value, although Bostick's basketball background makes him an intriguing hold in deep dynasty.

  Packers | Brad Jones works on dime defense    Thu Jul 31, 01:46 AM

Green Bay Packers LB Brad Jones has been working ahead of LB A.J. Hawk as the lone linebacker in the dime defense in practice.

Footballguys view: Hawk has been living on borrowed time the last few years, so it's not a shock that the team is beginning to look elsewhere. Jones struggled a bit last season, so we're not totally sold on him yet, but he's an every down 'backer who is also involved in the team's base 3-4 and dime packages so the potential for some points is there.

Green Bay Packers LB Brad Jones (ankle), DE Mike Neal (abdomen), LB Nick Perry (foot) and DT Ryan Pickett (knee) were limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: The defense needs to get healthy, though even then it's been underwhelming. Still, they will have their hands full with the San Francisco 49ers, so even guys like Perry (who has struggled to put it mildly)are needed.
