  • Panthers' Deion Jones: Sitting out Sunday

    Jones (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Vikings.

    Jones' absence from the active roster for the contest is a bit of a surprise after his statistically strong Week 3 performance. He'll now work to get the opportunity to suit up Week 5 against the Lions.

  • Panthers' Deion Jones: Signed to active roster

    Jones was signed to the Panthers' active roster Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official website reports.

    Jones will join Carolina ahead of their Week 3 road matchup with the Seahawks. The linebacker will help replace Shaq Thompson (lower leg) on the Panthers defense after Thompson was placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the year with a fractured fibula Tuesday. Jones appeared in 11 games with the Browns last season, recording 44 tackles, including 2.5 sacks.

  • Deion Jones: Unable to secure roster spot

    Jones was released by the Panthers on Tuesday.

    Jones inked a one-year deal with the team in July, but he won't get the opportunity to play out that contract. The veteran linebacker spent last season with the Browns after spending the first six seasons of his career in Atlanta and was working to earn a depth role in Carolina's linebacker corps.

  • Panthers' Deion Jones: Finds new home

    Jones signed a one-year contract with Carolina on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Jones spent the first seven seasons of his career in Atlanta before joining Cleveland for the 2022 campaign. The 28-year-old saw a decreased workload with the Browns due to a combination of a shoulder injury and a reduced role, leading to a career-low 44 tackles. He'll now have the opportunity to earn a more significant role in the Panthers' linebacker corps.

  • Browns' Deion Jones: Fills stat sheet

    Jones recorded seven tackles (four solo), two passes defensed and an interception in Sunday's 23-10 loss to the Bengals.

    Jones played a season-high 54 snaps on defense, as he's taken over the team's starting middle-linebacker role in the absence of Sione Takitaki, who is out for the remainder of the year with a torn ACL. Jones' interception was his first since the 2020 season, while his two passes defensed were his first of the 2022 campaign. He'll work to remain a force in Week 15 against the Ravens.

  • Browns' Deion Jones: Likely to take over starting role

    Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said that Jones is a likely candidate to take over as the team's starting middle linebacker after Sione Takitaki suffered a season-ending torn ACL on Sunday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Jones has largely played a rotational role since being traded from Atlanta to Cleveland in October, totaling 22 tackles and 1.5 sacks over six games. However, the 2017 Pro Bowler recorded over 100 tackles in five of six seasons as the Falcons' starting inside linebacker, so it's possible he could flourish if he does move up into a similar role with Cleveland. Jones will have to compete for this job with Jordan Kunaszyk, who Stefanski also mentioned as a possible candidate to step up into a bigger role moving forward.
