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.
