The Green Bay Packers announced the release of veteran ILB Brad Jones on Friday.
“We thank Brad for his contributions and dedication to the Packers over the past six years,” GM Ted Thompson said in a statement. “We wish him all the best.”
Jones, 28, signed a three-year, $11.75 million contract with the Packers that included $3 million guaranteed. He had a base salary of $3.25 million coming his way in 2015.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Jones will free up $3,693,750 in available cap space, while creating a $1 million in dead money.
Jones hasn’t come close to living up to his contract and was clearly among the most likely players to be cut by the Packers.
In 2014, he recorded 18 tackles and a pass defense over the course of 13 games.
