Could Alvin Join Aaron Jones as a Twin Brother Combo on the Packers?
Linebacker Alvin Jones—one of the top football players to come out of El Paso—might have a shot at playing on the same team as his twin brother Aaron in Green Bay.
The Packers hosted Alvin on an official tryout Wednesday, Zach Kruse of Packers Wire reported. Along with Jones, guard Ben Braden, offensive tackle Paul Adams and center Zach Shackelford worked out for Green Bay.
When the twin brothers were at UTEP, Alvin was a top anchor of the defense from 2014-17. His 343 career tackles with the Miners are second-most in program history since the 2000 season while his 40.0 career tackles for loss rank third and 15.0 sacks tie for fourth at UTEP. He earned All C-USA honors three times during his career.
Upon graduating from UTEP, Alvin went undrafted and signed with the Baltimore Ravens. He dazzled in preseason matchups for the Ravens but was waived after an injury setback.
When both Aaron and Alvin were at UTEP, the duo garnered a ton of support from the El Paso community. The Burges High School alums became local fan favorites in the city and continue to help out in the community through their annual Jones Brother Skills Camp. If the duo were reunited in Green Bay, the Cowboys might have a serious competitor as the city's favorite NFL team.
