Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but according to multiple reports, Jones signed a one-year, $3.75 million deal with incentives that could push the total value to $5 million.
The Vikings have announced the signing of defensive lineman Datone Jones, who spent his first four National Football League seasons with the Green Bay Packers.

House started 15 games his first year with the Jaguars and appeared to be a good find in free agency for the Jaguars, but something happened between the end of the 2015 season and the beginning of the 2016 season and House found himself tumbled down the depth chart.

With the departure of Lacy and James Starks being released following last season, the Packers only have converted wide receiver Ty Montgomery in the backfield. Behind Lang, though, there is no such player, no clear-cut option in waiting. There are also second-year guards Kyle Murphy and Lucas Patrick, but either would represent a significant drop-off as a starter.

Thompson got Sitton in the fourth round in 2008, Lang in the fourth round in 2009, Bakhtiari in the fourth round in 2013, Tretter in the fourth round in 2013, Corey Linsley in the fifth round in 2014, Marshall Newhouse in the fifth round in 2010 and Jason Spitz in the third round in 2006. Jones, who began the play on the left end of Green Bay's defensive line met Patterson as he tried to turn up the field.
