Patriots Worked Out Five Including S Josh Jones

Nick Underhill of the Athletic reports that the Patriots worked out five players on Friday including former Packers S Josh Jones.

The full list includes:

  1. OT Caleb Benenoch
  2. NT Carl Davis
  3. DT Willie Henry
  4. DB Josh Jones
  5. DB Adarius Pickett

Jones recently met the Vikings, Lions and Bills, so there has been a good amount of interest in him since becoming available. 

Jones, 24, was a second-round pick by the Packers out of North Carolina State in 2017. He’s entering the third year of a four-year, $4.2 million deal and was slated to make base salaries of $849,856 and $1,042,284 the next two seasons when Green Bay waived Jones with a non-football illness last week.

Jones passed through waivers unclaimed and is now an unrestricted free agent. 

In 2018, Jones appeared in 13 games for the Packers, recording 55 total tackles, one sack, no interceptions and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 70 safety out of 93 qualifying players. 

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.

Benenoch, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2016. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.823 million contract and set to make a base salary of $720,000 for the 2019 season when the Buccaneers waived him earlier in the week. 

Benenoch cleared waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent.

In 2019, Benenoch has appeared in one game for the Buccaneers and drawing a start.
