Dre’Mont Jones Finally Feels ‘Respected’ Upon Seahawks Move

Defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones waited a year to join the Seahawks and now he wants to ‘put people on notice’.

Seattle initially wanted to include Dre’Mont Jones in last year’s trade for Russell Wilson. The Broncos decided to keep him, but did not offer him a new deal or use the franchise tag on him. 

The Seahawks have shown him the love he wants with a three-year, $51 million contract with a guaranteed $30 million. That’s a big outlay on a player returning from injury who has never had more than 6.5 sacks in a season. However he’s undeniably a great fit for Pete Carroll’s defense.

“Almost out of nowhere … Seattle came in hot,” Jones said. “That kind of motivated me to come here more and more.”

“I mean, s—, they should have just traded me from the jump,” Jones said of the Broncos. “I was included in the (Wilson) trade. Denver said no. And then, Denver kind of … I don’t want to say that word — but Denver didn’t pay me my proper respects.

“So, I’m here, because (the Seahawks) respected me from the jump.”

“I’ve always get, like, overshadowed and overlooked … in something, you know what I’m saying?” Jones said. 

“I feel like I do a lot more than can be seen by the eyes of the inexperienced scout, and I do a lot of dynamic, different things that help make plays for others. I’m definitely an active player. I’m always doing something, whether it’s in the run or pass game.

“I think that goes unnoticed sometimes. And I’m looking forward to putting people on notice.”
