Packers release ILB Jones


The Green Bay Packers have released ILB Brad Jones. General Manager Ted Thompson and the team announced the move in a press release Friday afternoon.

"We thank Brad for his contributions and dedication to the Packers over the past six years," Thompson said in the statement. "We wish him all the best."

The Packers selected Jones out of the University of Colorado in 2009 as a seventh-round pick.

He played in 76 regular-season games, starting 36 times during his six seasons with Green Bay. Jones appeared in 13 games this past season, starting one. He also played in both postseason contests.

In his six seasons, Jones registered 293 tackles, 10 sacks and 33 special teams tackles. The linebacker now becomes an unrestricted free agent, making him eligible for any team to sign him.
