Jones has impressed in camp and could be in line for a starting role this season, Mark Long of AP.org reports.

EDGE Analysis

There is speculation that the Jaguars could be parting ways with fellow safety Ronnie Harrison as they continue to clean house before Week 1, which would more than likely leave Jones with starting responsibilities. The 25-year-old has spent time with the Packers and Cowboys through his first three seasons in the league.

The Jaguars claimed Jones off waivers via the Cowboys on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old saw action in six games with Dallas this season, making two tackles (one solo) in 74 total snaps. Per Yates, Jones will need to wait until the day after the Super Bowl for the move to process so he can start the offseason with his new team.

Jones was waived by the Cowboys on Saturday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones spent his first two seasons with the Packers before getting waived during the preseason. He ended up finally finding a landing spot with the Cowboys in November, but he has been let go in favor of the team adding cornerback depth for the regular-season finale.

Jones was promoted to the Cowboys' 53-man roster Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones landed on the Cowboys' practice squad after being waived by the Packers in late August, and he'll now get a chance on the active roster. The 2017 second-round pick provides depth at safety while Jeff Heath (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game at Detroit.

Jones (illness) was waived with a non-football illness designation Sunday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per Demovsky, Jones has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, something that can be treated with medication and won't keep him from playing. Once healthy, expect the 24-year-old to have suitors as a free agent.

The Packers cut Jones on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones had been dealing with a minor undisclosed injury during training camp, and it's unclear if that was the reason for his departure. The 2017 second-round pick is coming off a season in which he made 55 tackles (40 solo) and one sack in 13 games. Now that he's officially a free agent, the 24-year-old could be a hot commodity for teams looking to bolster their secondary.

Jones (undisclosed) was back in pads Saturday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones missed Green Bay's first preseason tilt due to the injury, so it's a good sign he was able to return so quickly. He'll return to a reserve role in the secondary.

Jones didn't play in Thursday night's preseason game against the Texans due to an unspecified minor injury, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The location of Jones' injury is unknown, but the Packers aren't concerned about him missing any regular-season action at this point. They likely exercised caution by holding him out of the preseason opener.

Jones (hamstring) said Wednesday that he will be present for training camp when it opens Thursday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones informed the Packers in late May that he would skip OTAs and request a trade from the team, but has apparently changed his tune. He's also dealing with a hamstring injury, so he may be looking for medical attention from team doctors. As evidenced by this news, it should be considered a solid bet that Jones will be on the Packers' roster when the regular season starts.

Jones did not participate in minicamp Tuesday due to a hamstring injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones requested a trade from the Packers while skipping OTAs a few weeks ago, but now his absence is apparently due to a legitimate injury. The severity is unclear, but it appears Green Bay is not in any rush to deal Jones regardless.
