S Jones signs 1-year deal with Eagles

Safety Sean Jones signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, helping fill the void created by Brian Dawkins' departure. A second-round pick by Cleveland in 2004, Jones played five seasons with the Browns. He was mostly used as a strong safety, but his playmaking skills make him a potential replacement for Dawkins at free safety. Jones may have to beat out second-year pro Quintin Demps for the spot.

Jones ranks third among safeties behind Baltimore's Ed Reed and St. Louis' Oshiomogho Atogwe with 14 interceptions since 2006. He had four picks in Cleveland's final six games last season. Jones missed four games after having surgery on his right knee, but played the last 11.
