General Manager Brian Gutekunst said Friday he expects Jones to be on the Packers during the 2023 season, but didn't rule out a contract restructure to reduce his contract, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Green Bay has a potential 'out' in Jones' contract this offseason, but it appears the dynamic 28-year-old remains in the team's future plans. Jones is currently heading into the final two seasons of his four-year, $48 million contract, however, and a restructure could be necessary for his salary to fit into the Packers' scheme. Green Bay is heading into an offseason that could contain a number of significant decisions, so keeping a versatile player who accumulated 1,516 yards from scrimmage and seven combined touchdowns in 2022 could help guarantee some amount of stability on offense.

Tonyan caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Lions.
Analysis: Tonyan ended the 2022 campaign with yet another underwhelming performance. The veteran tight end was on the field for 37 of the Packers' 60 offensive snaps and was unable to produce much for fantasy purposes with his opportunities. Tonyan finishes the season with 53 catches for 470 yards and two touchdowns. Fantasy managers thinking that Tonyan would become a bigger factor in 2022 with the departures of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling were met with great disappointment, as the 28-year-old was typically an afterthought in Green Bay's inconsistent aerial attack. The 6-foot-5, 240-pounder signed a one-year, $3.75 million contract with Green Bay last offseason, so he is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2023. Tonyan would likely have interest from teams around the league, but it's possible the Packers may want to sign him to a longer deal ahead of next season if they believe he can get back to being an effective weapon in the Packers' passing attack.

Dillon rushed nine times for 33 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Lions.
Analysis: Dillon failed to secure any of his three targets in the contest, as well. The 24-year-old running back was in a near-even split in playing time with Aaron Jones, as each back played 33 and 31 of the Packers' 60 offensive snaps, respectively. The loss to the Lions on Sunday eliminated Green Bay from the playoff picture, so Dillon and the rest of the team will look ahead to the offseason. The veteran will enter the final year of his rookie contract in the 2023 season, as he is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2024. Dillon finished the season with 770 yards and seven touchdowns while adding 28 catches for 206 yards. With Dillon likely playing for the Packers next season, it remains to be seen what the offense will look like around him. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is under contract through the 2026 season, but there is speculation that retirement or a mutual parting of ways could be on the horizon. Additionally, Jones remains under contract in 2023 as well, so it's possible the team continues to committee approach if both backs indeed are on the roster next season.

Valdes-Scantling gathered in 3 of 6 targets for 27 yards during Saturday's 31-13 victory against the Raiders.
Analysis: Valdes-Scantling compiled three or fewer catches for the fifth straight game, didn't top 28 receiving yards in the final five weeks and had just one touchdown to his name all season. The deep threat didn't really live up to what the Chiefs were aiming for when they signed him to a three-year contract before the season, though he did compile a career-high 42 catches and fell just three yards short of his career-high receiving yardage total with 687. MVS also drew 13 targets combined between the final two regular-season contests, so there is a chance he could make an impact in the postseason if he and Patrick Mahomes can connect on a deep shot.

Hundley reverted to the Ravens' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Hundley joined Baltimore's practice squad Dec. 5 and was elevated for the first time ahead of Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The veteran signal-caller did not wind up seeing the field as the No. 2 quarterback behind rookie Anthony Brown, the latter of whom started with Lamar Jackson (knee) and Tyler Huntley (shoulder) both inactive. Hundley could be elevated again if Jackson and Huntley both remain sidelined for this coming Sunday's rematch against Cincinnati in the wild-card round of the playoffs.
