It’s the day we’ve all been dreaming of, folks! The day that linebacker Brad Jones is no longer a member of the Green Bay Packers.
February 20, 2015.
Cue the ticker tape parade!
The Packers made the announcement that they cut the cord on Jones on Friday afternoon. It’s an announcement that we not only hoped for, but expected, considering it makes all kinds of financial sense.
Jones had only one year remaining on his contract. And while releasing him now forces the Packers to eat $1 million in dead money, they gain $3.75 million in cap space.
They also rid themselves of guy who made more mistakes than he did plays.
Jones opened the 2014 season as a starter at inside linebacker. He missed three tackles in the week 1 loss to Seattle and was benched thereafter. He never regained his starting job, but still managed to make his presence felt with idiotic mistakes. The ill-advised shot to Matthew Stafford’s facemask that drew a 15-yard penalty in week 17 and ultimately being the reason for Seattle’s successful fake field goal attempt in the NFC Championship game are two prime examples.
So long, sucker!
Allah be praised!
Just think, if B.Jones wasn’t in on the fake field goal play, which would of led to the Seahawks taking a FG, then B.Jones might still be a Packer due to his forced fumble on that kickoff.
Maybe the fake FG was a blessing in disguise.
Praise the lord!!!!!!!
Praise God!!!! Let Hawk be next.
Knick-knack paddy-whack give a dog a bone. This old man went rolling home. He really did, too.
Finally getting rid of all the losers they should have exiled years ago.
Brad Jones sucks shit
I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time.
Hate to rag on the guy but Pack gave him more than one “do over” He has bad karma. Watch viqueens sign him and he bites us in the ass.Nah, not with the purple pukes.Go Pack Go!!!
