Eagles Free Agency: Roseman “Working On” Bringing Donnie Jones Back

The Philadelphia Eagles have done a lot to recoup as many of last year’s key pieces as possible, re-signing Jason Kelce, Jason Peters, and Riley Cooper to long-term deals last week. They also re-signed wide receiver Jeremy Maclin to a one-year deal, securing three wide receivers with proven success on this team.

While many are looking forward to the unrestricted free agent period, the Eagles still have some unfinished business in the form of punter Donnie “Football” Jones. According to a report from CSN’s Geoff Mosher, the Eagles are working on a deal to bring Jones back.

Jones had a spectacular 2013 season, finishing 4th in the NFL with 33 punts inside the 20, accounting for an incredible 40% of his punts. He had a net average of 40.5 yards per punt, which was good for 9th in the league. There were many times where he pinned opponents back or reversed the field position battle in key moments for the Eagles.

One would figure that the team will bring him back on a one-year deal around $2 million, a little under the franchise tag number.
