Not happy to see him go. Hopefully he continues to disappoint and this isn't a big loss.

Jones is probably happy to join his UCLA buds Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks.

Bakhtiari now the only remaining member of the 2013 draft class.

Datone wasn't much of a lineman (supposedly Minny signed him to play end) but he was starting to come along as an Elephant 'backer.

Brutal. That's just embarrassing for a team that prides itself on draft and develop.

Jeez man, this just hasn't been a good day for me.  I had hoped we'd be able to sign both of these guys (Lacy and Jones) for "reasonable and fair" deals, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.  Hate that hollow feeling in my stomach though.

DE Datone Jones' deal with the Vikings: One year, $3.75 million with the chance to make $5 million, source says.

That's a deal I think would have been worth matching for GB but I guess they've seen enough to feel comfortable about what he could/would bring to the table.

Think he's a guy that can still develop into a pretty decent player - perhaps moving to a different scheme will be a benefit to his career.  Hate to think he becomes something for Minny but also thought he did whatever the team asked him to do and appreciate him for it.   Here's to D Jones making Minny just good enough to never challenge GB for the division and to go 8-8 or 9-7 and miss the Playoffs

Hmmm.....I just read my comment again and realize that I used the word "thought" or "thoughts" far too frequently.
I'll need to monitor that and be more diverse in my word choice! The concept conveyed is correct however :)
