As predicted, the New York Giants have released former Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones.

And there you go.
We’ll see where the Packers stand when their day of cuts is finished, but the word was that Jones would be the guy they would consider re-signing if he were available after Jordy Nelson got injured.
Jones had 73 catches for 666 yards for Oakland last season.
Meh… I wouldn’t be opposed.
I think Montgomery actually looks like a young James Jones though
There could be a reason why three teams have cut him or decided not re-sign him.
If Ted signs Jones ahead of the 4 receivers he drafted the last 2 years, it means he has no faith in them and we should all be very concerned
With a healthy Jordy Nelson, Myles White doesn’t make this team. If James Jones is as good as or even slightly worse than White, I’d go with JJ. Being on the same page with the quarterback mentally is what this team is short on. Rodgers needs someone outside who he can rely on like Nelson. Turn on any tape from last year…any game. You’ll soon see Rodgers throw passes to Nelson that he is only able to throw to Nelson because of the trust factor.
Does he have that with Adams, Janis, White or anyone else on the roster? No way.
Jones had 70+ catches and over 600 yards for the Oakland Fucking Raiders. This should be a no brainer for GB. Bring him in and if Myles White becomes the second coming of Charles Johnson for someone else, so be it.
It makes too much sense, so TT won’t do it. He’d be admitting he was wrong to let Jones go. TT is
to rigid to reverse course, even if it helps the team’s chances to win the SB. It’s all about TT.
Jones, of course, is the perfect 3rd receiver. He
has a knack for getting loose, especially in the end zone; exacting what the Pack needs. Put Ty
in the 4th spot, Janis as the 5th, cut White (too
small). Hello, Super Bowl!
I suppose you’re one of those kids that was pissed when Farve got cut too, huh?
Remmeber when the Packers won the Superbowl? yea, it was 5 seasons ago…Don’t be so fickle
I’d love to see jones come back, I felt in his last 2 seasons with us, he dropped the “stone hands” impression everyone had of him and became a really decent reciever in the red zone, capable of fighting for a ball. While of course it would be great to see one of the young guys come up and take that 3rd reciever spot, i just dont think it will happen overnight. It really took a long time to work in Nelson and Cobb, so having a short term solution would be ideal.
Move forward, not backwards. Have faith in the new guys.
I think an NFL veteran who knows the Green Bay system would be a great asset I the locker room for a receiving corps made up of rookies except for Cobb right now.
