Report: Former Packers pass rusher Jones is visiting Vikings

By Derek Wetmore

The Packers are getting picked over, and the Vikings might want in on the action.

Minnesota is hosting Datone Jones for a visit Monday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Whether a visit leads to a contract remains to be seen. It’s interesting, though, that the Vikings are looking at more pass rushers. Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter have both shown they can be difference makers in that area. Even Brian Robison had a quietly productive season playing inside and outside on the line.

The Vikings might want to restructure Robison’s deal this offseason, and I guess it never hurts to have depth that can get after the quarterback. Jones, 25, has played parts of four seasons in Green Bay and has 9 sacks 74 career tackles.
