Earlier this week, our 90-man roster ranking touched on several players classified as “holdovers.” These were players who, in large part, hung around on the roster for all or part of last season and will get another shot at the roster this season, despite not having a defined role or route to the roster.
Though he ranks much higher on the 90-man list, Josh Jones could be put in a similar category. Even now, heading into the third year of his NFL career, Jones doesn’t have much of a defined role in Green Bay. Is he a deep safety? A box safety? A hybrid linebacker? Does he have a spot on the roster at all?
These will likely remain open questions for several months to come, and Jones will have some competition as he tries to figure things out. Free agent signing Adrian Amos and first-round draft pick Darnell Savage Jr. could fairly be penciled in for starting roles. Beyond that, things are fairly open, but Jones will have to show he belongs to even have a shot at making an impact this year.
Despite an obstructed path to a big role this year, Zach Kruse of the Packers Wire thinks Josh Jones can still play a significant part in the Packers’ defense as a third safety.
Jones’s safety counterpart Darnell Savage Jr. ranks as one of the 25 NFL rookies best positioned for success in their first year.
It’s no secret that Aaron Rodgers is a huge part of the Packers’ success. But how does the Packers’ starting QB situation compare to others around the league?
Hoping to bowl with the Packers? Better act fast. Lanes for their Green Bay-area bowling event are going fast.
