While Josh Jones seeks trade, Packers get to work — with Adrian Amos and Darnell Savage at safety

JASON WILDE For the State JournalMay 22, 2019

GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers swore he saw Josh Jones at practice Tuesday.

Not on the field, of course. Jones, the Green Bay Packers’ third-year safety and former second-round pick, is skipping the team’s voluntary organized team activity practices and wants to be traded — as first reported by ESPN — after the team added one high-priced safety (Adrian Amos) in free agency and took a second (Darnell Savage) in the first round of last month’s NFL draft.

No, Rodgers said, he saw Jones among the railbirds outside the chain-link fence that encompasses Clarke Hinkle Field.

“I think he was at practice,” Rodgers said with a smile after the second OTA session of the offseason — and first that was open to the public and the media. “There was a guy that looked like him at practice outside the fence. Seriously.”
