That must mean he played very well.
It should be a low cost signing that provide value and more flexibility in the draft.
ProFootball Focusb grades him a value-performer for the Packers as he had a small salary due to being a 7th rd draft pick in 2009.
He played OLB early on but made a smooth transition to ILB.
Looking at the brief analysis on him and his measurable a pre-draft; I was surprised he wasn't drafted a little higher; probably because he only weighed 232 at the time. Now he's listed at 242.
I hadn't considered Jones, but I would consider him to be one of the more attractive-slash-realistic possibilities for the Texans. Seems very much within the free agent MO of the organization.
