James Jones has been with the Green Bay Packers for eight of the nine seasons of his NFL career. He was drafted by the Packers in the third round back in 2007 and quickly became a very reliable tertiary target in the passing game. He stayed that for a while (his 14-touchdown season in 2012 was a bit of an outlier) before leaving the Packers for the Oakland Raiders in 2014.

Jones was Oakland's leading receiver that season with 73 catches, but he wound up moving on at the end of the year anyway. He signed with the New York Giants but was cut just before the start of the season, with the team instead keeping slot man Preston Parker. So Jones wound up back with the Packers after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL during the preseason.

Jones was on fire at the start of the year, scoring six touchdowns in the first six games while totaling 424 receiving yards during that time as well. He slowed down over the final 10 games of the year, notching 464 yards in that time and only two scores.

But he's a free agent again now, and Jones said on Sirius XM Radio that he doesn't expect to be re-signed before the official opening of the signing period.

It's possible he could wind up returning to Green Bay, but with Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis, and Ty Montgomery all under contract, there might not be room for him in their plans for 2016 and beyond. At only 30 years old and having proven he can still be a reliable contributor, though, there should be at least some market for Jones as a third wideout.

James Jones doesn't know whether he'll be back in Green Bay. (USATSI)
