James Jones had a big year in Green Bay in 2015, But Jones could not recreate his summer magic in San Diego, and struggled to pick up the playbook, according to reports.

Jones very well may have something left in the tank. But there is not a huge market for 32-year-old No. 3/No. 4 wide receivers who lack elite speed and don't play special teams.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Jones may need to sit home for a few weeks and wait for an injury to hit somewhere before he gets another chance. As for the Bolts, it could mean good news for Tyrell Williams or Dontrelle Inman. Previous reports said Keenan Allen could play the slot which would put Williams on the outside, while Inman is more of a slot receiver which could keep Allen on the outside.

James Jones to sign with Chargers

With Stevie Johnson set to undergo surgery on a torn meniscus, the San Diego Chargers tested out potential replacements Tuesday.

They settled on James Jones.

The Chargers are signing long-time Green Bay Packers wideout, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source aware of the move.

Rapoport reported earlier that the Chargers were hosting Jones and former Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline on Tuesday, per sources. In addition, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported former Lions receiver Lance Moore would also work out for the team.

Fantasy Impact:

It's clear the 32-year-old has lost a step, won't get much separation from corners and will rely on timing with the quarterback to earn any production in his 10th NFL season, the story said. With Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin look like they will start, so the Chargers might be comfortable using Jones as a veteran replacement in a limited role in 2016. However as we reported several times, it's not out of the question Allen gets time in the slot with Jones on the outside.
