James Jones may not be certain where his NFL career is going, but he knows where he wants to be.
The veteran wide receiver finds himself a free agent after a bounce-back season with the Green Bay Packers, and seems to be at a career crossroads.
The 31-year old proved useful to the team in 2015, recording 50 passes caught for 890 yards and eight touchdowns after being picked up following an injury to Packers' star Jordy Nelson.
Whether he will remain with the Packers into the 2016 season has yet to be known, but he certainly knows that Green Bay is his first and most alluring option.
"I was hoping it would go be back to Green Bay, but I don't know what's going to happen," Jones said on Sirius XM Friday. "Like I said before, I would love to finish my career as a Green Bay Packer, but we all know this business is extremely crazy so it looks like I'm going to hit the open market again so we'll see what's going to happen and hopefully I get a little more action this time.
"I'm hearing a lot of these receivers names being called and people are trying to brush over my name, and I had one of the best seasons out of all these guys that are free agents."
The bold statement is actually an accurate one, as he did manage to record more catches and touchdowns in 2015 than current free agent wideouts Jermaine Kearse, Rishard Matthews and Mohamed Sanu.
While his age continues to dominate the discussion, he has proven to be durable in his later years.
"I plan on playing a good three-four more years," Jones said. "I would love to finish my career there, but it's a crazy business, and I just go with the flow -- that's how I did it last year, that's how I've been doing it my whole career. I just want to get my opportunity to make some plays. Hopefully this free agency is good for me and someone thinks I can help their team win and be productive at the wide receiver position."
