With it unlikely Josh Jones will earn a starting job at safety this summer, is it possible the Packers look to trade him? Jones is hoping to be traded, as ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reported last month, but with so much talent still available at the position in free agency, what would teams be willing to give up in a trade?
It’s of course a possibility that the Packers decide to move on from Jones as he wants to be traded, and they could then sign a free agent to replace him on the roster. There’s been no sign of that so far this offseason, though.
The signing of Adrian Amos and the selection of Darnell Savage Jr. has all but ruled out a starting job for Jones at safety, barring an injury. But even then, Raven Greene would likely be the top backup.
It’s also possible that defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has a plan for how he wants to use Jones this year, and as a result he could get more defensive snaps. Only time will tell.
It’s understandable why Jones is frustrated and why he’d want to move to another team, and it’s possible the Packers agree, and either trade him or release him ahead of the new season.
