Linebacker Brad Jones has agreed to return to the team, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Jones met with Packers officials Wednesday before agreeing to the contract. The Packers later announced that Jones has re-signed with the team.

Jones previously visited the Tennessee Titans.

Jones started 10 games in 2012, doing a solid job at inside linebacker. He has mostly played on the outside during his career; his versatility is one of the reasons why he snuck into the end of our list of top 85 free agents.

The Packers have been busy at inside linebacker during free agency, re-signing Robert Francois and giving A.J. Hawk a pay cut. Jones figures to be a super sub who can back up the starters on the inside and outside.
