Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a source that says James Jones has not been offered a contact to remain with the Packers, and most likely won't be.
Jones's agent, Frank Bauer tends to agree, saying, "I don't think Ted Thompson wants him."
Many factors contribute to the Packers possibly moving on from Jones: the vast talent of incoming wide receivers displayed at the 2014 combine, Jones's age, and the emerge of Jarrett Boykin last season for the Packers.
Probably even more significant was the development of Jarrett Boykin in 2013, his second season in Green Bay. Playing behind Jordy Nelson and Jones during Randall Cobb's absence because of a broken leg, Boykin caught 49 passes for 681 yards, a 13.9-yard average and three touchdowns.
Just as Jones was one of the players that ultimately made Greg Jennings expendable last March, Boykin is one of the players making Jones expendable this March.
In 2012, Jones led the NFL with 14 touchdown receptions and after last season moved up to 12th on the Packers all time receptions list.
