James Jones Gets A 1-Year, $870K Deal With No SB From Packers

ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reports that the Packers have signed WR James Jones to a one-year contract worth the veteran’s minimum of $870,000 and contained no signing bonus.

  • According to Demovsky, Jones will count $585,000 against the Packers’ salary cap for the 2015 season.

Green Bay has a total of $15,684,919 in available cap space to work with as of right now.

Jones, 31, immediately came up as a potential option for the Packers after they lost Jordy Nelson for the season in the event that the Giants released him.

Sure enough, New York parted ways with Jones just a little over a month after they signed him to a one-year deal, and was in Green Bay just a few days later.

The Packers, obviously, weren’t all that comfortable moving forward with Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis as their No. 3 and No. 4 receivers.

In 2014, Jones appeared in all 16 games for the Raiders and caught 73 passes for 666 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 89 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
