Green Bay --- It's been a quiet two weeks of free agency for the Green Bay Packers. But on Thursday, they ensured the inside linebacker group would remain intact. The team has re-signed free agent Brad Jones, a league source told the Journal Sentinel's Tom Silverstein. Terms of the deal are unknown.

Linebacker Brad Jones took a trip to Tennessee, but he's going to be remaining up north. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Jones has agreed to terms on a deal that will keep him with the Packers for at least one more year. No terms of the deal have been reported. Jones

I was hoping we would keep Brad, cause he played pretty well. I just hope we don't have any token starters going into training and let the battle begin.

The Green Bay Packers' most competitive position in training camp probably will be inside linebacker.

Well somebody has to get first reps and someone has to get second reps...

I like to think all positions are an open battle every training camp. And whom ever is the best get to start.

My biggest problem is that every so often a back-up gets hot and looks like he should be starting and then get hurt by playing too many snaps in preseason clean-up duty of preseason STs every so often.

Like CB House got hurt on STs this last season.

In 2006, Ted Thompson signed S Marquand Manuel and he looked horrible, while 2005 4th round draft pick S Marviel Underwood broke out and looked great, and looked like he should clearly be starting.... but then he got hurt in mop up duty trying finish out a perseason game for the team and he was never the same when he came back from the injury and had trouble staying on rosters.

And that was 2005 4th round draft pick, S Marviel Underwood ..... and NOT trouble maker 2009 6th round draft pick, CB/S Brandon Underwood.

Good to have Jones back, hope the other guys can stay healthy this year.

Would be a great rotation available and they might even earn their money this year.

All Ted's sizzle aside, I'm hoping Brad Jones doesn't even make the final 53.

This unit requires upgrades in talent. If Bishop comes back healthy, that would be a huge plus. Perry too. But, we should be adding potential starting talent via the draft that is better talent than Jones, Francouis, Walden (replacement pending?)...

Returning the same group who allowed NFL rushing D futility records and expecting to get better is foolish.

Terrell Manning could make this signing inconsequential. I hope that kid shows well this year. If Brad Jones can make a jump, great. I'm just disappointed in what we ran out there last year.

Brad Jones making more than A.J. Hawk? If so, could we see a competition between Hawk, Jones and Desmond Bishop for the two ILB positions?
