Datone Jones Does MMA Training with Jay Glazer

As shared on Instagram by Unbreakable Perforamance gym in West Hollywood, Cal. on Monday, Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Datone Jones is seen doing MMA training with Jay Glazer of Fox Sports:

Unbreakable Performance is owned by Glazer in conjunction with former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher. Glazer is known for his offseason training with NFL players.

Jones grew up in nearby Los Angeles, and the former UCLA player is looking to play a bigger role in 2014 following a rookie season slowed by injury.

A 2013 first round draft choice, Jones also trained with Glazer last offseason. Clay Matthews, too, has trained with Glazer in years past.

Glazer is back on his feet after suffering through a life-threatening case of aspiration double pneumonia earlier this spring.

FWIW, both NFL.com and FoxSports have Datone pegged as a breakout player for the upcoming season.

ha...so serious.

Yeah, I am really looking forward to seeing Datone in year 2.

I saw some flashes of his talent last year. I know others didn't see it but I did. I would love to see him take a year 2 leap.

I know what I saw from the guy in the first 2 weeks of TC before his injury so I know the guy can play better than he showed for most of last season.

I also know that the guy spent the entire offseason in GB training, so you know he wants it. Now we see him working his ass off doing MMA training before camp starts, which is one of the best cardio workouts one can get.

These are not the actions of a guy that's just filler, I would expect to see him with at least 7 sacks this year, maybe more depending on how much playtime he gets throughout the season.

you suck

You stop it Cow, Mike Daniels had 6.5 sacks last year and that was with the worst starting Safety tandem in the league and no Casey Hayward in the secondary.

Now with Julius Peppers on board and a commitment to better use of personnel on defense I don't doubt the Dline avg will be 4 sacks but 1 or 2 will have 7 sacks or more, Daniels or Jones or both.

I know you think you got Datone Jones pegged but you are wrong sir, dead wrong.

Datone Jones had 3.5 sacks on a bum ankle for most of the year playing in only about 15% of the total defensive snaps as a rookie.

Im not sure why you think its that far fetched to have 1 guy get 7 sacks on this D-line when Daniels had 6.5 while still playing a very limited role.

Both Daniels and Jones will see more playing time and will most likely have more time to rush the passer given our improved secondary.

Say what you want about Capers but his defenses always get a lot of sacks, with a lighter more athletic Dline a 4 sack avg is not that far fetched. Not saying they will all have 4 a piece but the unit could avg 4.

Because he's the definition of a hater.

You spelled "troll" wrong.

I didn't know Chris Wesseling and Alex Marvez were green and gold blinded homers.

Evan's picture

Pretty much, yeah.

"Hopes that Jones could make a quick impact in his rookie season were dashed when he suffered a sprained ankle during the preseason. The effects of that injury lingered well into the fall." - Marvez, FoxSports.

"Described as "nearly unblockable" early in training camp, the first-round draft pick ended up playing just 24.2 percent of the defensive snaps due to a high-ankle sprain sustained on the first snap of the preseason." - Wesseling, NFL.com

Those damn homers!

Guess what? YOU SUCK.

You can have a hard time believing it all you want - I'm certainly not pretending to know the answer - but my only point is that the ankle injury is not some BS, homer excuse.

Clay Zombo's picture

Look it up man, do a little research once in a while. Some high ankle sprains can take up to 6 months to heal or longer depending on the severity. The fact that he tried to play through it probably didn't help speed his recovery either.

Ask Eddie Lacy how long it took his regular ankle sprain to heal? He tried playing through it the last 4-5 weeks of the season and still had pain a month after the season ended.

BJ Raji was another rookie who hurt his ankle in the preseason and said it was never right all season. The next year the guy produced 6.5 sacks, returned an INT for a TD and helped win a SB.

Call me a Homer or whatever makes you feel better but excuse me if I don't put too much stock in your uneducated guesses.
