Here's an interesting twist!

Josh Jones wants to be traded.


[Josh Jones, a second-round pick just two years ago, is skipping the Packers' OTAs because he's hoping to force a trade, a source told ESPN.
Jones has been working out in Florida with a trainer after he left the Packers' offseason program about a month ago.
The source said Jones, who was the 61st overall pick in the 2017 draft, believes it would be best for both him and the Packers if they parted ways.]

Is Jones just unhappy because Gute drafted Savage, and Jones thought he would be the annointed starting Safety to be paired with Amos?
Or, has he read the tea leaves and suspects he could be a CCC (Camp Cut Casualty)?

Anyway, it's a curious turn IMO.

As a player in his first contract this is the closest thing to power. It is important to note that he is skipping voluntary OTA's - not holding out or missing mandatory mini-camp or practices.

I hope the Packers do not blink. Once management cracks open the door, other players under contract will see this as an effective way to force trades or releases. At worst Josh Jones is a valuable special teams player and depth at safety and nickel and dime MLB.

An unfortunate development early in a new coaching staffs reign.
The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.

Doubt you see any comments from the GM office. JJ has to learn how to play in the pros.

It has been well documented since draft day that Josh Jones was a player that Gutey pounded the table for hard, but this guy seems to have the 10 cent head on him. The Packers played a ton of 3 safety defense last year and I believe that was the plan this year. Some people will want to claim Jones is playing LB, I don't care what people call him, but Pettine would be playing him and playing him in a spot to best use his talents. He could be a valuable player for the Packers defense, just not sure he is smart enough to figure that out.
