Decent pick up. Doesn't get home too often, but will get pressure on the QB occasionally. Dumb as a box of rocks though

He's going to be a good fit in Zimmers defense

Decent depth signing for the Vikings. Think he's a better fit in a 4-3.

Bakhtiari is the only player left from the 2013 draft on GB's roster. Shocked

Jones might be able to replace Tom Johnsons role as an interior pass rusher. Might add some depth behind Robison at LE. Zimmers done well with first round flops.

Well they kept the best one at least.

I loved him coming out of college and thought he would be a breakout player for us. Sadly, he never quite developed into the interior pass rusher we all thought he would.

Still a decent depth signing, though.

What happened to him? Thought he'd be pretty good

This guy will never have to worry about his MENSA dues. He was usually good for one boneheaded penalty/personal foul a game. He also was suspended for one game in 2015 for possession of marijuana. Maybe a change in scenery will turn it around for him...

A waste of potential for the Packers. Drafted as a 3-4 DE tweener. Dudes a bone head, with a enormous melon at that, but he could be good given the right fit.

I think he's in a good position to succeed with better defensive talent around him and better coaching.

Griffen, Hunter, Jones and Robison make a pretty nice group of Defensive Ends.

This should likely end the Trattou and Crichton era in Minnesota. Such sad. Many cry.

Seems like he's a good signing for the Vikings, good for them.
