Summary

James Jones has spent his entire seven year career as a Green Bay Packer, catching passes from Aaron Rodgers. In the offseason he left the Packers to join the Oakland Raiders where he'll likely catch passes from Matt Schaub. Jones should be the WR1 in Oakland, a position he was never asked to fill in Green Bay. In his 7 years as a Packer he topped 100 targets just once, in 2012. That was also the year that he caught a career high 14 touchdown passes. While Jones struggled with injuries in 2013, he played all 64 games in the 4 previous years. At 30 years old, Jones is expected to bring some much needed veteran leadership to the Raiders receiving corps. Jones has never topped 65 catches or 1000 yards in a season but until last season he was a consistent red zone option. (May 5)

Raiders | James Jones showing his physicality (Mon Jul 28, 08:24 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR James Jones has shown a knack for catching balls in heavy traffic during full team sessions, according to Jerry Mcdonald of The Oakland Tribune.

Our View: That is what Jones does. He can make difficult catches seem routine, but he sometimes has trouble securing easy catches. Jones is also known for his nose for the end zone. With the Packers in 2012, Jones caught a whopping 14 touchdowns that season. He could be in line to catch about half that as the Raiders top receiver in 2014.
