Ranked by Pro Football Weekly at number 46 of the top 100 free agents on the market, James Jones has fallen off the face of the market.
Thought to have been chased by the Vikings this week, Jones is nowhere to be found … in any discussions of free agents.
Packers fans know what he’s capable of doing. He can stretch a defense at any time and run by cornerbacks and safeties with ease … but he can also drop the easiest looking passes at any time. We’ve all seen him do that, too.
Here’s what Pro Football weekly wrote about the Packers wide receiver:
46. James Jones, wide receiver: “Jones is talented but flawed. Deceptively fast, Jones finished second among Green Bay receivers in 2010 with five touchdowns and made some brilliant catches. He also did an excellent job picking up yards after the catch and has exceptionally strong hands and a great body. But he also dropped what would have been sure TD passes in five different games counting the playoffs; had three fumbles, including a really costly one in an early-season loss to the Bears; and had a disturbing knack for losing his concentration at the most inopportune times.”
So, we ask again … where oh where are you James Jones?
