Former Green Bay Packers first-round pick Datone Jones has signed with the division rival Minnesota Vikings.

Tuesday morning Lacy's representation tweeted the Packers running back was heading to Seattle. The Seahawks have since formally announced the signing, but not the exact details of the contract. In four years with the Packers, he has nine sacks.

According to Pro Football Focus, Jones ranked as the league's 61st edge rusher last season with a grade of 69.2.

Linebacker Dont'a Hightower, the top remaining free agent available, remains on his visit with the Steelers at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

Davon House is returning to Green Bay after a two-year hiatus. He spent his first four years in the National Football League in Green Bay, leaving in 2015 for a four year $24.5 million free agency deal in Jacksonville.

Last season, House totaled just 13 tackles over 16 games.

The 27-year-old cornerback agreed to re-join the Packers on a one-year deal worth approximately $3.5 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The team does not release the exact details of the contracts.
