Packers Tender Offensive Tackle Caleb Jones

The Packers have made the move to bring back one of their top developmental prospects along the offensive line. Offensive tackle Caleb Jones will be back in Green Bay for a third season after being given the exclusive rights free agent tender. This move comes alongside Green Bay bringing back reserve running back Emanuel Wilson and punter Daniel Whelan. Both on the same tender.

Jones is a fascinating prospect in Green Bay. Now, he has only played in one career game in his two years there. However, the former Indian Hoosier stands massive at 6-9 and weighs 370 pounds. He is a giant. That is putting it in simple terms. Even the biggest NFL offensive linemen don’t come out to be that big.

If Jones can find a spot on the 53-man roster at the conclusion of training camp, look for him to carve out a key reserve role at the very least. Remember, Green Bay has moved on from five-time All-Pro and former franchise left tackle David Bakhtiari. Additionally, other offensive tackle Yosh Nijman is also still a free agent. This offense will need more depth at both ends. This is where Jones could come in and help out if he is needed.

With Rasheed Walker and Zach Tom both putting together impressive seasons last year while protecting Jordan Love, both starting tackle positions are locked up. But with Jones’s unusual size and stature, the Packers are wise to keep him around. Time will tell to see if he carve out a bigger role for himself in 2024.
