  • Packers' Datone Jones: Denied fifth-year option
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones did not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The Packers took Jones in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, but, like all of Green Bay's first-round selections since the CBA was updated in 2011, was deemed unworthy of having his fifth-year option exercised. The decision is fully justified, as Jones has been disappointingly average in his tenure as a Packer thus far and would command a hefty $6.57 million. However, defensive coordinator Dom Capers hasn't written off the UCLA product quite yet. Jones will reportedly shift to an 'elephant linebacker' role in 2016 as a means for him to play both alongside, and in place of, teammate Julius Peppers. Should Jones prove effective in his new role, he may earn a deal similar to that of Green Bay's 2012 first-round pick, Nick Perry, who signed a one-year, $5 million contract after having his own fifth-year option declined a year before.

  • Packers' Datone Jones: Will work more at OLB in 2016
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones may receive more snaps as an outside linebacker in 2016, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Jones has followed in the footsteps of recent first-round picks of the Packers along the defensive front, totaling eight sacks in 44 career games. Nevertheless, defensive coordinator Dom Capers experimented with Jones at OLB this past season, and the coaching staff liked what he presented, even if his performance didn't translate to the box score. In order to log more time at the position, though, Jones will likely need to trim some of the 285 pounds from his 6-foot-4 frame.

  • Packers' Datone Jones: Notches two sacks in Week 11
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jones recorded two tackles (both solo) and two sacks in Sunday's victory over Vikings. Jones doubled his sack output for the year in Sunday's game alone, and now sits with three sacks in 10 games this season. He has not put up much in terms of statistics, but he has been a key component of the Packers' defensive line rotation.

  • Packers defensive end Datone Jones active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Packers defensive end Datone Jones (head) is active for Sunday's game at San Francisco, the Packers' official site reports. In Week 3, Jones was examined for a potential concussion, but nothing emerged, and he'll be available to the defensive line rotation Sunday. His sparse usage (just 18 percent of the defensive snaps) this season hasn't lent itself to individual defensive player relevance.

  • Packers reinstate DE Datone Jones
    By CBSSports.com Staff

    The Packers reinstated defensive end Datone Jones from the suspended list Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jones will be eligible to play in Week 2 after sitting out the Packers' season opener while serving a one-game suspension. He will likely be a reserve when Letroy Guion returns from a suspension of his own, but with Guion out another two weeks, Jones could get a chance to start.
