NFL Rumors: James Jones unsure Green Bay Packers will want him back


The Green Bay Packers seem to have an insanely popular and talented receiver for a few years before he’s dumped on the open market and replaced by an up-and-comer. Donald Driver was replaced by Greg Jennings who was replaced by James Jones who will now be replaced by any number of the Packers receiving threats.

According to Dan Hanzus from NFL.com, there is a desire for James Jones to return to the Packers in 2104 but the wide out is unsure if that opportunity will arise in free agency for him.

“Honestly, I feel that there is a chance that I can be back, and then I honestly feel that there’s a chance that I can’t,” Jones told Around The League on Tuesday from NFL Network studios. “This is the time where you just kind of wish that something would happen so you can know where you’re going.”

Jones wasn’t the only target that Aaron Rodgers threw to, but the quarterback became obsessed with him enough to make Jones a well known name in the NFL. He’ll be looking to cash in on that success in free agency, but that’s only if he can’t convince the Packers to re-sign him first.

    Rodgers makes a lot of recievers look great. Remember the great number Jennings used to have? Maybe Jones will realize the boost he is getting and stay with the green and gold for a fair price, if not, NEXT MAN UP!
