Jones, 31, wound up signing on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State back in 2014. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1.537 million rookie contract before returning to Chicago on a one-year deal for the 2017 season. 

The Lions later signed Jones to a two-year contract in 2018. Jones was in line to be an unrestricted free agent when he signed a two-year extension near the end of the 2019 season. 

Detroit released Jones last year and he wound up signing a one-year contract with the Bears. He became an unrestricted free agent this offseason and eventually signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad a few weeks ago. 

In 2021, Jones appeared in all 17 games for the Bears and recorded 20 total tackles.
