James Jones is still in it for the love of the game.
The free agent wide receiver stated during an interview on Sirius XM NFL Radio Wednesday, that he is “extremely surprised” that he hasn’t signed with a team this offseason. Jones had a stellar year in 2015 with 50 catches for 890 yards and eight touchdowns with the Green Bay Packers. Despite his solid performance after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in training camp, the Packers have decided to go in a younger direction this season.
Jones said other teams have expressed some interest in his services and made sure to let any possible suitors know that he’s open to any and all offers from any and all teams.
“I got me a Super Bowl ring,” Jones said. “I’d love to get another one. But my ultimate goal is to play 12 years. And I just want to get out there and play football. It doesn’t matter who it’s for. I just want to play. If it is a chance where I can get to a team that they’re a contender or we have a chance to win the Super Bowl, that’s awesome, too. Everybody thinks they’re going win the Super Bowl right now. I’m just trying to get somewhere to play.”
It s likely he will end up on an NFL squad before the start of the season. However, where will remain a mystery for the time being.
