Impending free agent wide receiver James Jones wants to re-sign with the Packers according to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
“I’m not one of those guys who goes home and says I’m worth 30, 40 million,” Jones said. “We’ll see what happens when the market comes.”
The Packers aren’t going to pay soon-to-be 30-year-old Jones top dollar or probably even what Jones could get on the open market.
Packers GM Ted Thompson has a reputation for not paying veterans much guaranteed money, and he could choose to give Jones’ snaps to Jarrett Boykin in 2014. Also slot receiver Randall Cobb will likely merit a contract extension sometime in the 2014 season.
Jones was never the same after suffering a knee injury against Baltimore, but he toughed it out and raised his level of play greatly when backup QB Matt Flynn was playing.
