    Got a question asked of me the other day, and figured I'd throw it out here as well.....

    Who stands a better chance of being resigned and seeing his future be in Green Bay for say the next 3-5 years? Nick Perry or Datone Jones?

    I'll withhold my initial thoughts as I even as I started discussing began switching my stance and by the end of my answer I actually thought the opposite.

    So your response......go:

    Datone Jones, probably.

    Isn't Perry on that one year deal? I also feel like he's very injury prone, which sucks because he had some nice moments last season.

    Honestly, they both could. Neither will demand huge contracts in the off season. Unless one (or both) explodes this season and has a career year.

    Yeah, I'd guess Datone of the two. Perry's one-year "prove it" deal came at a bad time where he may be a cap casualty regardless of whether or not he "proves it."

    I had such high hopes for Datone. I thought he might be a Mean Joe Greene type. But he has not panned out. Nick has really showed some good playing but sometimes disappears. Obviously would like to see both have great years. Sorry to have to puss out but will have to wait and see how the year goes.

    I think Jones is more likely to be re-signed. Good year or average year, I think Perry is likely to be offered more by some other team. Bad year we won't want him back.

    I like Both. Injury concerns aside, I like Perry. But all things considered, Jones is the safer pick. Both have more potential than what we seen IMO.

    I think this is the season we find out. Both need to stay healthy and have a productive year. If not, it's been nice knowing you.

    For some crazy reason (call it hope), I think that Nick Perry's constant injury history is behind him. I think that he'll turn into a consistent player for this defense but certainly not a star.

    With Peppers getting up in age the Packers will be in need of a starting outside linebacker next season. Both Perry and Jones haven't proven to be capable of filling that void so far so I guess none of them will get a lucrative long term deal with the Packers.
