    I started a thread talking about we receivers and well a lot of people seem to be asking the question will Jones return to Green Bay?
    after being released from the Giants leading that team in receptions in the pre-season with 15 of them and a 12.5 average yards per catch, is he the answer to the Packers lack of Jordy Nelson this season? is it worth going after the old veteran? or do we give some young talent a chance?


    I think we should give the young talent a chance.

    I think it's pretty unlikely, but I'd be happy to see him back for 1 year. He'd be like a #5 though, which I can't imagine is real high on his "to do" list.

    I did love Jones when he was on the Packers but after he left I don't have much interest in him coming back. would still be interesting to see what he could do once more with Rodgers cause his last two seasons here were pretty damn good.

    As I posted in the Boykin thread, the player in place to "take Jordy's place" is Adams. The #3 WR would take Adams' spot from last season, etc. I don't think I've seen anyone suggest Jones would replace Jordy.

    OH and I totally forgot about Montgomery! where do you think he falls into the mix? slot receiver? as of now do you think he is the number 3? do you think Jones would take the 3 and he would fall to 4 if they bring in Jones?

    Always liked Jones. Character guy, you know? I just don't think the Pack will bring him back, choosing instead to follow their draft and develop mantra. They'll now "develop" I'd guess.

    I just honestly can't see TT bringing Jones back, I don't know what it is i just don't see it happening.

    IMO a team with very serious and realistic Super Bowl aspirations can "afford" to lose the "upside" and/or progress of White for a season in favor of veteran experience. BTW, I don't disagree with Thompson's proclivities so this isn't a prediction, just what I prefer.

    The impression I have of James Jones is that he drops a lot of routine passes. If anyone has the numbers I'd be interested to know if that's based on reality.

    Just food for thought: Reggie Wayne is also likely to be available.

    If the Raiders didn't want to keep him and he couldn't make the Giants' roster what does that say about where JJ is at at this point in his career? The Packers will start the season with who they have and unless they really falter don't expect any "names" to be coming in.

    that's very good point, I forgot about how many easy balls he dropped! I would get so mad watching him play because of the amount of passes he would drop.

    Thompson may prefer to stick with youth in the receiving corp, but the reason not to sign Jones better not be because of the number of balls he dropped.

    Its not like he is as old as he is being made out to be. He is a year older than Jordy with a pretty clean injury history. White is just a guy and I would think 12 is blowing up tt's phone to get him to bring JJ back.

    I don't know if Rodgers really cares who he is throwing to, I think he is invested in the organization and trust in TT and Mike.

    Do they go after him or would I want them to go after him. Plain and simple I would rather see Cobb, Adams and Jones lining up in the 3 receiver sets than any combination we could put together now. I'd prefer to have more than 1 WR with more than 1 year of service. Will they, I have no idea.

    Do you think Janis can develop in a good receiver? I mean he has the speed and the size, maybe if you throw him into the mix with the first teamers he will develop fast and be a force.
    I don't disagree that it would be nice to see that line up, I am also curious to see what Janis can do with this offense.

    He has the measurables to be very good. He's just kind of lacking everything else a receiver needs to be good.

    My only thing with Janis which was pointed out in the last pre-season game is that he is not a pure hands catcher, that would be something he has to work on, it doesn't just come natural to him like it does with some other receivers such as Nelson. I think he has the potential but he would have to work on his hands catching
