WEDNESDAY, 9:16am: Jones’ two-year deal with the Eagles is worth $2.85MM, with $500K guaranteed, tweets Adam Caplan of ESPN.com.
MONDAY, 2:46pm: After hosting him for a free agent visit today, the Eagles have signed linebacker Brad Jones to a two-year contract, the team announced (via Twitter). Jones, who was cut by the Packers in February, also met with the Titans before landing in Philadelphia.
Jones, who turns 29 next month, had been a Packer since the club drafted him in the seventh round in 2009. Although he was a starter for Green Bay in 2012 and 2013, his role was significantly reduced in 2014, as he played just 218 defensive snaps. After averaging 80+ tackles per season the previous two years, Jones recorded just 23 last year, to go along with a forced fumble.
Financial terms of Jones’ new deal with the Eagles aren’t yet known.
