PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Guys That Have to be Good: Datone Jones

Datone Jones is the one and only returner from last season’s list.  The Packers’ 2013 1st round pick flashed his huge potential during camp and then suffered an ankle injury that, according to the coaching staff, limited his productivity all season long.  I’m actually in favor of a “redshirt” year for defensive linemen, pass rushers and wide receivers so Jones’ lack...
