The Green Bay Packers have unexpectedly lost one of their rookies for an unconventional reason: retirement. 

The team officially placed Jones on the reserve/retired list on Monday, May 13.

The 23-year-old had only recently signed with the team on April 30 after going undrafted in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Jones participated in their two-day rookie minicamp during the first weekend of May and worked with the No. 1 offensive line as the right guard.

The Georgia native played college football for the Michigan Wolverines from 2019 to 2023, during which he was part of the roster that clinched the 2023 CFP National Championship last January 2024 under Jim Harbaugh. He also won three Big Ten Conference titles in a row.

Over the past five seasons, Jones made 16 starts and played in 41 games for Michigan, seeing action in 839 snaps.

Trente Jones’ retirement reason remains unclear

The reason for Trente Jones’ retirement remains uncertain, with conflicting reports on the matter.

MLFootball has stated that Jones decided to retire due to a back injury, while others have suggested that it may be related to mental health issues that he has been grappling with since his time at Michigan.

Jones has a growing social media presence, boasting over 360,000 followers on TikTok and 1.17K subscribers on YouTube. His content primarily consists of film reviews of high school football games and workout sessions.
