Impending free agent receiver
"I've thought about places that I would like to go play, whether it's in Indy or there's coming back home, San Diego or somewhere. Teams have popped up in my head. I can't say I haven't thought about it, but in a perfect world I'd love to go back (to Green Bay)."
The paper doesn't expect the Packers to make an offer before Jones hits the open market March 11. Jones turns 30 next month, and the team is happy with the development of Jarrett Boykin behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, the report said.
Free agent receiver James Jones could conceivably re-unite with former
Jones has yet to land a 1,000-yard season but has caught 24 touchdowns over the last three seasons (just three last year, though).
The knee sprain
Jones broke two ribs against the Steelers on Dec. 22 but played through that injury.
"During his injuries at Green Bay, he was telling me, ‘My knee hurts, bro.’ He said it hurt," Keith Williams, Jones' receivers coach at San Jose State, told the paper. "The ribs hurt, too. The rib deal was real painful. The game he came back, he said, ‘Man, I’m kind of nervous. If I get hit there, it’s going to hurt.’ He said, ‘I’m nervous, man.’”
Jones, 29, is about to enter free agency.
“I pride myself on being tough,” Jones told the paper. “I broke my ribs in Pittsburgh. But I played through it, practiced through it. You know, when you practice through it, you don’t have to put it on the injury report or none of that because I’m out there at practice every day.
“Its part of the game. You’ve got to go out there.”
An impending free agent, Jones wants to return to Green Bay but isn't sure how the process will play out.
“I'm not one of those guys who sits at home and says I'm worth $30, $40 million,” Jones said. “We'll see what happens when the market comes and guys start making offers -- if they start making offers. We don't even know. We're sitting here talking about free agency. I could be going to Canada, you never know. So we'll see what happens.”
