Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Shifting to outside
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will play as a defensive end in 2019, Brady Henderson of ESPN reports.

Jones spent his first two seasons with the Seahawks as a defensive tackle, and he worked in a limited role with underwhelming results. Poona Ford established himself as a dependable run-stopper down the stretch last season, so the Seahawks feel comfortable bumping Jones to the outside. There's an opening at defensive end for the time being after Frank Clark was traded to the Chiefs, but the Seahawks are expected to draft at least one edge rusher which will further cut into Jones' projected usage.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Takes step back in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones made seven tackles (two solo) in nine games this season.

Jones had an opportunity to rise up the depth chart into a starting role, but he averaged just 14.6 defensive snaps per game after being beaten out by trade-acquisition Shamar Stephen and undrafted rookie Poona Ford. Stephen could walk in free agency, but Ford is expected to bump into the starter role in 2019, likely leaving Jones as a backup again.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Inactive for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Jones has not suited up since Week 6, and will miss Sunday's tilt against the Rams due to an illness. As long as Jones remains sidelined, Poona Ford and Rasheem Green could see increased defensive snaps.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Returns to action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (hip) made two tackles (one solo) and one pass breakup in Saturday's 24-14 preseason loss to the Chargers.

The 2017 third-round pick has the potential to be a solid pass rusher after he notched two sacks, three pass breakups and one interception in 11 games during his rookie campaign. However, Jones is on track for a reserve interior lineman role behind Jarran Reed and Tom Johnson.

Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Sits out with unknown issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (undisclosed) sat out of Tuesday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Jones is listed as a backup behind Jarran Reed, but he should come in handy for pass rush situations as he had two sacks, three pass breakups and one interception in 11 games last year. The Seahawks have a strong defensive front once again, however, with Reed, Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen (knee) -- the latter two combined for over 1,000 snaps with the Vikings last season. Therefore, Jones will be hard-pressed to get on the field enough to be a consistent IDP threat.
