Analysis: Jones was the 26th overall pick of the 2013 draft by the Green Bay Packers. The 27-year-old has recorded 73 tackles, nine sacks and seven passes defensed in 59 career games with the Packers. Jones then spent training camp this season with the Minnesota Vikings before being placed on injured reserve. He was eventually released with an injury settlement in September, allowing him to sign with the Lions.
