Former Browns starting safety Jones rarely used as backup for Eagles

By dan Published: September 15, 2009

Did you watch the Eagles play the Panthers Sunday and didn't see former Browns safety Sean Jones? That's because he didn't make the game-day roster.

After starting for the Browns from 2006 to 2008 at strong safety, Jones signed a one-year $3 million contract with the Eagles during the offseason.

Already strong at the position, Jones saw sparse playing time during the preseason. For Philadelphia's game against Carolina Sunday, Jones wasn't even active, although he is healthy.

Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer expects Jones to play Sunday. That's mostly because starter Quinton Demps is out with a strained hamstring.

Jones was replaced in Cleveland by Abram Elam, whom the Browns acquired in a draft-day trade with the Jets.
