House returning to Packers

For the second consecutive day the Steelers played host to a free agent, and for the second day in a row, the Green Bay Packers swooped in and signed one of their targets.

In addition to crossing the border, Jones will be shifting from the Packers 3-4 base in which he's played defensive end and outside linebacker to likely manning the defensive line in the Vikings 4-3 base.

According to NFL Network, Jones signed a one-year contract for $3.75 million with the chance to make $5 million.

The 2016 season was his first at outside linebacker after moving from defensive end.

During the last two seasons, Elliott had four sacks in limited playing time.

House hauled in four interceptions his first season with the Jaguars, but struggled to get on the field a year ago.

Last offseason, the Packers declined to pick up the fifth-year option on Jones' rookie contract.

On a similar topic, Green Bay had to watch another one of its players choose a divisional rival in free agency when guard T.J. Lang signed with the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
