The Philadelphia Eagles have signed former Green Bay Packers linebacker Brad Jones to a two-year contract…
Linebacker Brad Jones was released by the Green Bay Packers after six seasons with the team, but he has been able to find work with another team.

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed Jones to a two-year contract, giving them linebacker depth. He will not likely win a starting job since he struggled as a starter for the Packers.
He should still receive special teams reps and plenty of playing time as a reserve linebacker for the Eagles though. Mychal Kendricks and Casey Matthews are currently the starting inside linebackers.
Jones should have a smooth transition to the Eagles defense though since he has played in a 3-4 scheme his entire career.
Around the NFL announced the Eagles’ signing of Jones on Twitter.
