Undrafted free agents 2014: Chicago Bears to sign Christian Jones


As is the case every year, once the draft comes to an end, there are many players still looking for a home. Usually, those undrafted players quickly sign with a team and get ready to go to work. Often times it is better for a player to go undrafted instead of getting picked in the final round. Players can assess their situation and see if a team has a need at their position or has shown a lot of interest in them. In some cases, players simply choose to stay closer to home.

According to Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country, the Jacksonville Jaguars will sign former Florida State Seminoles’ linebacker Christian Jones.

Of course, nothing is final until the team announces it.

This is obviously good news for Jones, who will join his teammate, linebacker Telvin Smith.

Jones made 56 tackles with 8.0 coming loss and 2.0 sacks in 2013.

UPDATE: Jones will be inking with the Chicago Bears instead.

    Christian Jones is a linebacker who could transition to strong safety in the mold of Kam Chancellor or Steve Atwater. If he had collegiate experience at the position I believe he would have been drafted in the early rounds — only my opinion.

      I am hoping his work ethic translates to one of those two, because he just signed with the Bears

        Look at his tape and he’s a heck of an athlete – look at his build and 230 is too slight for his frame as a LB or edge rusher. If he can make the roster playing special teams and get preseason and garbage time experience at SS — and practice time against your tall receivers — anyway, I’ll be interested to see if the coaches see what I see.
