Josh Jones wants to be traded

Recommended Posts

I remember being underwhelmed when we drafted him, his college tape never got me thrilled but his HWS had me intrigued. Then palmy came around saying he loved the pick... my thoughts instantly changed. 

Now I'm back to square one. And I miss palmy.

I"m gonna miss Cincy Josh.

Dude looked like he was having fun.  Making nice tackles, beating tight ends, making plays.  It was a very good game by the rookie.

Too bad he didn't stack successes.

I'll go out on a limb here.  He's gonna hit somewhere else.  And it will be as a strong safety that plays near the box.  I think he's got too much talent to not hit.  Just needs to be the right scheme and fit.  And it wasn't going to be here.

I had heard that he really liked the night life and video games....moreso than the defensive playbook.  Heard that as a rookie, not so much last year....  And...it was just a rumor.

If I asked you if we got an average at best DT (he hasn't done anything yet) and a top 10 back - when healthy - out of next year's draft, you would be OK with that?

When you look at the talent around some of our picks, things get a lot worse.

If you were to additionally tell me that we would pick a CB that was better-than-average when healthy and another RB whose floor is a RB2 and whose ceiling was as middle-of-the-road feature back who will continually improve over time, I would be ok with that.

Jones was an athlete with poor intangibles. He was drafted almost solely because of his athleticism.

Except he's horrible as a box safety...

What team will take their chances with Jones?  I predict he signs with the Lions.

The Bears need a safety. They plan on starting Ha Ha and Jackson is the free safety. I think it's the Bears as we play them week 1. It would be a 'Bears' type of move.

Unless his "illness" is debilitating, the fact that not a single NFL team chose to claim Jones on waivers with two years remaining on his rookie deal is revealing.

It is not as if a team signing Jones now would be saving much money compared to claiming him off waivers..

Former Packers S Josh Jones, a 2017 second-round pick, has gone unclaimed on waivers and is now a free agent.

Andy Herman:  Well that explains no trade. Just a massive loss of value of the past two years for Jones.

With his head on straight I bet palmy was right though. Can’t read what’s in a mans heart

He signed for 4 years ~4.2m and has made ~2.4m.  So, being used goods, he will have to prove his worth.  He might be cheaper than 900k per season for a team that would pick him up.

Not surprised he went unclaimed. The team that drafts you loves you more than any team. As a second, the reality is he was probably a 4th+ round prospect for 3/4ths the league. Being unproductive, teams aren’t going to line up 3 year later.

He’ll get a try out and likely a 1 year minimum deal at some point. He’s a dart throw  now though hoping a chance though now (unfortunately for him he didn’t understand that).

Wonder of the Patriots could mold him with Chung chunked.  Then again, they like DB's who can cover.
