Brad Jones didn't last very long on the free agent market. A few days after being cut by the Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia announced Monday afternoon that they've agreed to a contract with the former Packer for two years.

Jones will join an Eagles inside linebacker group compiled of DeMeco Ryans, Mychal Kendricks, Najee Goode, Emmanuel Acho and Brandon Hepburn.

The Packers released Jones on Feb. 20 after six seasons in Green Bay. Jones, 28, was a limited contributor for Dom Capers' base defense in 2014, but still managed to add work while mostly on the special teams unit after losing his starting job at inside linebacker to Jamari Lattimore and eventually Sam Barrington. Sadly, he recorded just a career-low 18 tackles this past season for the team.

Ted Thompson and his staff deciding to let Jones a few weeks ago saved the Packers $3.7 million against the cap for this offseason. We'll soon find out the financial details of his contract.
