Report: Packers decline Datone Jones' option

The Green Bay Packers have decided that one of their defensive ends will be playing in the last year of his contract this year, according to a report.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports that Datone Jones did not have his option accepted for his contract, which means this will be the last year of his option.

It does not mean he won't be back in the future, but that he will be a free agent next year.

In three season so far in Green Bay, Jones has eight sacks and 41 tackles on his career.
