Raiders Sign Wide Receiver James Jones to Three-Year Deal
(NEW YORK) — After a bumpy start to free agency, the Oakland Raiders have made a slew of moves recently, including a three-year deal with wide receiver James Jones.
ESPN is reporting Jones’ deal is worth $11.3 million
The 30-year-old Jones had spent his entire seven-year career with the Green Bay Packers, and provided steady and consistent production over the years.
Jones has been very productive the past three seasons despite playing in a crowded group of wide receivers in Green Bay. This past season, Jones caught 59 passes for 817 yards and three touchdowns.
Over the past three seasons, Jones has caught 24 touchdowns and developed quite a bit of chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Last season, the Raiders had the 23rd ranked offense, so Jones’ presence should help provide an upgrade to the team’s offense in 2014.
Along with Jones, the Raiders have signed defensive ends Justin Tuck and Antonio Smith, linebackers LaMarr Woodley, and corner back Terrell Brown.
