  • Bears' Justin Jones: Signing with Arizona

    Jones is slated to sign a three-year, $30.1 million deal with the Cardinals on Wednesday, Peter Schrager of NFL Network reports.

    The contract will include $19.75 million in guaranteed money, per Schrager. Jones recorded career highs in solo tackles (29), sacks (4.5) and passes defensed (four) in 2023 with the Bears. The sixth-year pro also played more than 700 defensive snaps for the second straight season.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Set to hit free agency

    Jones tallied two stops in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

    After playing the first four years of his career with the Chargers, Jones has had the best two years of his career with the Bears. He didn't play more than 526 snaps in a season during his time in Los Angeles, but Jones played 718 snaps in 2022 and 720 snaps this year. He finished the season with 49 tackles, including a career-high 4.5 sacks. Jones is now an unrestricted free agent as he enters his age-27 season.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Up to 4.5 sacks this season

    Jones tallied three tackles and a sack in the Bears' 27-16 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Jones has 3.5 sacks over his last six games, which has coincided with the Bears' defense's showing vast improvement. However, his tackle totals have been inconsistent on a weekly basis, making him a volatile weekly IDP option.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Best game of season

    Jones posted 1.5 sacks and six tackles in the Bears' 28-13 win over the Lions on Sunday.

    Jones has recorded at least three stops in six of his last eight games. As a defensive tackle, he has shown a solid weekly scoring floor, which is enhanced when he posts a sack.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Collects second sack of season

    Jones tallied four tackles, including a sack, in the Bears' 16-13 win over the Panthers on Thursday.

    Jones has posted between two and four tackles in seven of 10 games while adding two sacks on the season. He remains a steady floor play at defensive tackle in IDP leagues.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Big tackle numbers

    Jones tallied seven tackles in the Bears' 19-13 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

    Jones came into this game averaging two tackles per game with a high of four, so his seven tackles represented a huge game for the defensive tackle. It's likely that this performance is an aberration for the six-year veteran who is coming off a career-high 52 tackles last season.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Best season of career

    Jones tallied three tackles in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18, and ended the season with 52 tackles, three sacks and a fumble recovery over 17 games played.

    After playing his first four years with the Chargers, Jones posted the highest tackle total of his career, averaging three per contest. He also tied his career high in sacks with three. He averaged over 40 snaps per game as a lead defensive tackle in a rotation, and he should retain that role going forward. He's under contract with the team through the 2023 season.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Posts third sack of season

    Jones tallied a sack and six tackles in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

    Jones posted more than three tackles for the second time since Week 4 while getting back in the sack column for the first time since Week 5. He'll remain a volatile IDP option in Week 18 against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Second sack of season

    Jones tallied a sack and a tackle in the Bears' 29-22 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

    Jones has been an inconsistent fantasy option this season. He has three games with three tackles or fewer along with two games with six or more stops. However, he's notched sacks in two of the last three games, and if he can keep getting to the quarterback, he'll increase his overall upside.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: No injury designation for Week 5

    Jones doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's Week 5 matchup against the Vikings.

    Jones landed on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant due to a hip injury. However, he returned to full participation Friday and will be good to go for Week 5. The 2018 third-round pick has played over 60 percent of the team's defensive snaps in each of the first four games of the season, totaling 19 tackles and one sack.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Pops up on injury report

    Jones (hip) was a limited participant during the Bears' practice Thursday.

    Jones appears to have picked up a hip injury after not being listed on the Bears' injury report Wednesday, though the nature of this issue is still unclear. The defensive tackle recorded 19 tackles and one sack while playing all but 20 of his 185 snaps on defense through four games this season. If Jones' status declines or stays the same during practice Friday, then Mike Pennel and Armon Watts could see increased usage this Sunday against Minnesota.
