You have actual articles with direct quotes from the Packer's front office saying they are signing him to a new contract? Please link them, I haven't seen this and would be interested.
I have seen quotes from Jones saying they are working on a new contract, but that is only half of the equation (at most) to getting a contract done. Of course Jones wants a new contract and I'm sure his agent is "working on getting one", but that doesn't mean the Packers are putting much effort into his contract.
We are both guessing at this point, with you seemingly believing Jones and I'm believing the clues from the last draft.
As a Packer fan I hope they can work out a team friendly deal, but I don't anticipate that happening.
