Vikings hosting another Packers free agent in Datone Jones

Mike Garafolo of reported that the contract is a a one-year deal worth $3.75 million.

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, House is signing a one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers, returning to the team that let him become a free agent in 2015. In his third year with the Packers, the one time offensive rookie of the year finished with 758 yards and three touchdowns.

With the departure of Lacy and James Starks being released following last season, the Packers only have converted wide receiver Ty Montgomery in the backfield.

Richard Jefferson notched double-figures for the fourth time in his last six outings, chipping in with 11 points off the bench. We've just got to do a better job of taking that away". "We got too comfortable and started messing around".

The Packers reportedly wanted to keep House, who played his four National Football League seasons in Green Bay from 2011-14, before he signed a four-year, $24.5 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015.

The Packers passed on picking up the fifth-year option on former first-round pick Datone Jones a year ago.

House hauled in four interceptions his first season with the Jaguars, but struggled to get on the field previous year. Last season House saw his role diminish along with his numbers with the Jaguars.
