The Oakland Raiders have agreed to terms with free-agent WR James Jones (Packers) on a three-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Nice signing for the Raiders with a more accomplished wideout than has been there since... Randy Moss? Jones stock goes up now that he should end up the #1 receiver but a lack of quarterback doesn't make the 30-year-old Jones more than a risky middle tier pick in fantasy drafts.

Free-agent WR James Jones (Packers) is interested in signing with the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: The WR-needy Panthers have seen their free-agent options dwindle in recent days, and could look to the former Packer, who led the league with 14 TD grabs in his last full season (2012).

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR James Jones (Packers) said he'd be interested in joining the Indianapolis Colts or San Diego Chargers if the Packers don't re-sign him.
Huddle Up: Jones, who turns 30 later this month, still has a good deal of football left in him. He had a career-high 817 receiving yards this past season -- a year after leading the league with 14 TD grabs -- and he could get more of a chance to showcase his talents as a strong No. 2 in either Indy or San Diego after being stuck in the Pack's seemingly annual WR logjam.

The Green Bay Packers have not offered WR James Jones a contract, and it is unlikely they will before the start of free agency. 'I don't think Ted Thompson wants him,' said Frank Bauer, Jones agent. Bauer said he has appointments with a number of teams to discuss Jones.
Huddle Up: Jones was thought to be out the door previously, yet wound up back in Green Bay, so don't write him off just yet. That said, with Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson both up for contract extensions Jones may be free to find a new home elsewhere.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones is excited about the prospect of testing free agency again this offseason. 'People know what I can do. I'm excited about it,' Jones said. 'Like I said, I would love to come back. A-Rod's my guy. We've got a great group of receivers and would love to come back and play with those dudes. I've been here for seven years, it's not like I've only been here for three years and now I'm a free agent. Shoot, I dang near spent my whole career here, so I would love to finish here.' Jones improved on his dropped passes in his last three seasons and had a career-high 817 receiving yards in 14 games this year.
Huddle Up: Given their choice -- and more importantly, the right price tag -- the Packers would no doubt prefer to keep Jones around, but the emergence of Jarrett Boykin this season gives the team a strong fall-back option.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) is active for the team's Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Good news for Aaron Rodgers owners as Jones returns to the WR mix for Green Bay after missing the past 2 games. He has 1 catch for 10 yards since a 4-127-1-TD showing in Week 5.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) is participating in practice Saturday, Nov. 2.
Huddle Up: It sounds like there's a good chance Jones will play this week. The problem for fantasy purposes is the Packers and Bears don't play until Monday night, so owners will need a backup plan in place in case Jones doesn't suit up.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 31, and hasn't practiced in full since spraining his left knee Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: It's still early in the practice week with the Packers not playing until Monday night so see what Jones can do over the next few days.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he hopes WR James Jones (knee) will be able to play Week 8 but will know more Wednesday, Oct. 23. McCarthy indicated the doctors expected Jones to miss two to three weeks.
Huddle Up: Aaron Rodgers is losing players left and right, so this would be huge. Expectations seem low, but keep an eye on Jones this week.

Green Bay Packers WR Myles White could serve as the team's third wide receiver if WR James Jones (knee) is unable to play.
Huddle Up: It's looking like Jones won't go on Sunday. White doesn't offer any fantasy value right now, as he'll be behind Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and Jermichael Finley for targets on Sunday.

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: This has all the makings of a game-time decision, but Jones hasn't practiced all week and we'd advise fantasy owners to line up another option ASAP.

Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley may line up as a wide receiver starting in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns with WR Randall Cobb (fibula) on Injured Reserve and WR James Jones' (knee) availability in question.
Huddle Up: Finley only has 9 catches for 107 yards on 14 targets over the past 3 games, but look for a definite uptick in his numbers with the Pack's WRs corps depleted.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (knee) was believed to have suffered a right knee injury in the Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he was seen after the game icing his right shin in the locker room.
Huddle Up: It seems the Packers packed their four-leaf clovers to Baltimore this week, as both Jones and Randall Cobb appear to have escaped major injury. Hopefully Jones won't miss much time, but keep an eye on him this week.
