In addition to the previously reported move of signing RB Wayne Gallman, Seattle released DT Jarrod Hewitt from their practice squad. 

Jones will miss a minimum of four games before he’s eligible to return. 

Jones, 28, was a second-round pick by the Packers out of North Carolina State in 2017. He was entering the third year of a four-year, $4.2 million deal when Green Bay waived Jones with a non-football illness.

Jones passed through waivers unclaimed and signed on to the Cowboys’ practice squad. He was waived a few weeks later and claimed by the Jaguars.

Jacksonville re-signed Jones as an unrestricted free agent in 2021 only to release him coming out of the preseason. He caught on with the Colts for a while, then had a stint with the Seahawks to end the season. Seattle re-signed him for the 2022 season. 

In 2022, Jones has appeared in 12 games for the Seahawks and recorded 27 total tackles, one fumble recovery and one pass deflection.
