Where are you, James Jones?

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?

    Let’s get real.Jones cannot out run,stretch a defense unless the DB squad is a 1st string High sckooler.

    I wish everyone in the James Jones fan club would take the blindfolds off and except reality as it appears all teams have done.

    He is an ass for listening to himself,his agent and those who filled his empty head with nonsense and bloated his PROVED value to extremes.He is now paying the price for it.

    I said it once and will again,JJ should have stayed with us for a two year deal and honed his Tons fo Talent(ahem) and maybe then he would have gotten #2 money at best.

    Wake up people and for your sake JJ,wake up to yourself.

    Based on this event,we may need to bribe the NFL for a Compensory pick for him…

      Jones is an excellent athlete with all the tools … But he has other issues like his drops and fumbles. If the Packers find a way to get him back in the fold I won’t complain…if not, there are still plenty of horses in the stable.
