Brett Jones: Cut loose by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings waived Jones on Tuesday.

Jones didn't play an offensive snap this year, serving instead as depth on the offensive front. If he clears waivers, there's a good chance that he lands on the practice squad.

Vikings' Brett Jones: Back with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a one-year, $910,000 contract with the Vikings on Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Jones spent the 2019 season on injured reserve with the Vikings due to a knee injury. With 2019 first-round pick Garrett Bradbury tending to starting center duties, Jones could provide depth at the guard position which is extremely thin for the Vikings to this point in the offseason.

Vikings' Brett Jones: Will be UFA in March
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) ended the 2019 season on injured reserve.

Jones was designated to return from IR after suffering a torn MCL in November, but the Vikings never officially activated him. The 28-year-old was a depth center in 2019 due to rookie first-round pick Garrett Bradbury, but Jones started a combined 16 games over the previous two seasons. Jones will be an unrestricted free agent in March, and he could look for increased duties elsewhere.

As a result, Jones can return to practice and will do so immediately Wednesday. The Vikings have up to 21 days to activate him or return him to IR for the remainder of the season. Assuming the 28-year-old makes it back to the active roster, he'll most likely serve as depth on the offensive line.

Jones (calf) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Tom Rock of Newsday Sports reports.
