The Raiders are releasing defensive lineman Datone Jones, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

The move is not unexpected given the Raiders didn’t sign Jones until Aug. 12. The Raiders, though, want Jones back on the practice squad, per Pelissero.

Jones was in camp with the Jaguars last year but released in final cuts. He did not appear in a game last year.

Jones spent two seasons with the Cowboys, playing for now-Raiders defensive line coach Rod Marinelli.

Jones, 30, was the Packers’ first-round choice in 2013. In four seasons in Green Bay, he made 72 tackles and nine sacks.

He also has spent time with the Vikings, Lions and 49ers.

  1. I wish my Vikes would pick him up. We lost too many people on defense. It’s going to be a long year.

  2. Remember when the superior Viking coaches said they could coach him up to be a SuperBowl MVP, and he said he’d gladly take less money to play for the Vikings just for the privilege?

  7. There is no greater compliment than someone pretending to be something they’re not. Imitation is still the sincerest form of flattery.

    Not when you take into account your various screenames he doesn’t. Particularly sad when you use Ariani to shore up Cheesy’s drivel (or vice versa).

  9. I don’t know what was said at the time but I do know in 2017 the Vikings gave Datone Jones $1.7 million in guaranteed money to show up for training camp, and cut him before the regular season started.

    Thanks to the best cap guy in the business and/or the GM (not the best) who was recently extended.
