For an NFL receiver, there aren’t many destinations currently better than Green Bay.

The Packers annually find themselves in playoff contention and with one of the premier quarterbacks in the league under center, it’s a dream scenario for pass catchers.

That’s likely why James Jones wants to remain with the Packers, recently suggesting he would like to re-sign with the team:

Jones wants to come back and he should be re-signed. He was never the same after suffering a knee injury against Baltimore, but he toughed it out and raised his level of play greatly when Flynn was playing. At some point next year, Randall Cobb is going to warrant an extension, so paying a lot for Jones isn’t in the cards.

Of course, as noted, the Packers can’t break the bank for Jones given their other commitments so it’s unknown if a deal will be agreed upon, though Jones seems to understand the financial crunch Green Bay could be facing:

“I’m not one of those guys who goes home and says I’m worth 30, 40 million,” Jones said.

    Jones can get paid enough to ensure a comfortable financial future without breaking the bank. I’m sure he understands that and will be reasonable during negotiations. I’ll be surprised if he isn’t back.
