Report: James Jones to visit with Packers
James Jones left the Packers as a free agent before the 2014 season, but he may be back in Green Bay in time to start the 2015 season.
Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports that Jones’s agent Frank Bauer says his client is on his way to visit with the Packers. Given Jones’s experience playing in coach Mike McCarthy’s offense with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the visit could turn into a signing pretty quickly.
While the Packers have expressed confidence in the ability of Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and the rest of the receiving corps to handle things with Jordy Nelson out for the season, the addition of Jones would give them a bit of insurance who wouldn’t need much time to get up to speed on the team’s offensive scheme.
It's not a big surprise as this had been rumored even when Jones was still property of the Giants. Should he sign with Green Bay, it could change the depth chart at WR for the Packers.
