Brad Jones' new contract makes him higher paid than A.J. Hawk and the team's second-highest paid inside linebacker, behind Desmond Bishop.

Hey, let's send Finley a giant check for this birthday too! It is raining money in Green Bay!

Wheeeeee!

IMO, both of these guys have a lot to play up to in these contracts. Let's hope these high prices paid out result in another Lombardi Trophy in Green Bay. That's our goal here, right?

I love articles like this.. ignore the whole contract to pick a segments of it that fits a headline.

The overall compensation doesn't surpass Hawk.. this year, in which the majority of the signing bonus is absorbed in the front of the contract (like Green Bay regularly does) surpassed the cap number of a reworked contract in which much of Hawks signing bonus as already been paid out but still being leveraged against the cap.

Subjective journalism to manufacture a headline. =d>

If Hawk wouldn't have to be pulled o ff the field on third down, he would have never been asked to take a paycut. I'm linebacker envious of the 49er's. I love Matthews, but we have considerable dropoff after that.

bleh - I dont know how much we are paying brad 'sucky' jones but wth? - so we wont pay people that are an inspiration to the team or great players but we will over pay lackluster people just because they are sitting in green bay?

geez - serious brad jones hasnt done jack since he's been here; only reason he had that decent year with some sacks is because teams were trying to stop CM and so let jones run free.

No good DE's out there? or even a decent OLB? so what we get rid of zombo and walden (granted sounds like he got a good deal elsewhere) but still I dont even know whose playing our backers -

Brad Jones' best contributions to this team is his coverage skills, and those can't be overlooked. He's certainly not an elite coverage MLB, but he is as good and likely better than anyone else on the roster that we have currently seen, imo. Coverage ability from a teams MLB's is a key weakness that can be exposed and abused by many teams, especially against guys like Hawk, Bishop, and DJ Smith.

Agreed, you need a thumper and coverage middle linebacker. When you get two guys that can do both like the 49ers have, then you have the building blocks for a great defense. We do not have that yet in Green Bay. I have my fingers crossed on Manning though.

I have high hopes for Manning too.

And I agree, Jones has outplayed Hawk. BJ is underrated, imo.

uffda udfa (4h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (6h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (6h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (7h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (11h) : It's just fine.
musccy (11h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (12h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (13h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (13h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (13h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (14h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (14h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (14h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (18h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (18h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (18h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (18h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (18h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (20h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (20h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (20h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (21h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (21h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (22h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (22h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (22h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (22h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (23h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (23h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (23h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (23h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
