The Eagles have signed former Green Bay Packers linebacker Brad Jones, the team announced on Monday. 

The Packers drafted Jones in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft out of Colorado. He has played his entire six-year career in Green Bay, registering 76 appearances and 36 starts for the Packers. 

Jones' best season came in 2013, when he started 12 games and recorded three sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and 60 tackles. In 2014, he played in 13 games but only started once, and he finished the year with just 16 tackles. 

Philadelphia allowed 365.6 yards per game last year, fifth-worst in the league. The Eagles allowed 25 points per game.

The Eagles missed the postseason in 2014, finishing 10-6 but failing to win the NFC East or collect a Wild Card spot. The Packers won the NFC North with a 12-4 record before advancing to the NFC championship game, ultimately losing 28-22 in overtime to the Seattle Seahawks
