Vikings' Datone Jones: Inks deal with Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a contract with the Vikings on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

The former 2013 first-round selection spent the past four seasons in Green Bay, racking up 74 tackles and nine sacks during that span. He now heads to the division-rival Vikings where he'll likely take a backup role behind starters Brian Robison and Everson Griffen. However, Robison, who is currently 33, could see his reps begin to dwindle, which may provide an opportunity for Jones to make his mark. The 26-year-old did spend some time at linebacker with the Packers, so the Vikings definitely have options for how to utilize their newest signee. For the most part, Jones has been underwhelming through his first four seasons in the league, but a change of scenery could fix that.

Packers' Datone Jones: Finishes 2016 with one sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded 22 tackles, including one sack, and two passes defensed in 2016.

Jones played in a career-high 53.1 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps in 2016 but failed to muster much production. The Packers chose not to exercise the fifth-year option of Jones' contract last offseason, making him an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the league year. After finishing 22nd in the league in defense this season, Green Bay could look to retool and let Jones sign elsewhere.

Packers' Datone Jones: Back to full strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After missing Week 3 due to injury, Jones was afforded a bye this past week and now appears to have regained his health. He should be ready to play come Sunday.

Packers' Datone Jones: Unavailable for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 3 tilt with the Lions, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports.

Jones was downgraded from questionable to doubtful during the week after missing all three of the Packers' practices, so it wasn't expected that he'd be available for Week 3. With Jones and Clay Matthews both sitting out, the Packers will rely heavily on Julius Peppers and Nick Perry to provide some pass rush on Lions quarterback Matt Stafford.
