Packers WR James 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.
But he's good in the locker room and a pro on the field.
"I'm not one of those guys who goes home and says I'm worth 30, 40 million," Jones said. "We'll see what happens when the market comes and guys start making offers. If they start making offers, we don't even know. We're sitting here talking about free agency and I could be going to Canada. You never know."
Most professional athletes overestimate their worth so it's refreshing to hear Jones low-balling his own value. He turns 30 this March, so he's no spring chicken, but his game has improved considerably over the past two seasons. If the Packers can bring him back on an affordable deal, he would provide depth behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
