James Jones isn’t sure where his football future will take him, but he plans to spend a month or more decompressing with his family before he
starts getting back into the football swing of things.
Jones will be an unrestricted free agent and it’s uncertain just what the Green Bay Packers thought process is about having him remain a part of the outstanding Packers’ receiving group.
Jones is one of the higher profile players set to hit free agency, joining players like Jermichael Finley, Evan Dietrich-Smith, Sam Shields, B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett and Johnny Jolly. Add Mike Neal, John Kuhn and Andrew Quarless to that list as well.
Jones was an unrestricted free agent three years ago as well. He returned to the Packers, but that was a totally different deal.
Jones is also a different player than he was three years ago, from the standpoint of numbers along. He’s become more of a consistent, productive, go-to player.
Jones and the Packers almost had another week of playoff football to concern themselves with. They took the 49ers to the wire and lost 23-20 when Phil Dawson booted a 33-yard field goal, his 3rd of the day, to win it for San Francisco.
