Giants Hosting James Jones

Veteran wide receiver James Jones is visiting the Giants, Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter) hears. The hope for both sides is that the powwow will turn into a signing, he adds.

Jones probably won’t ever approach his high-water mark season of 2012, when he led the league with 14 touchdown receptions while catching passes from Aaron Rodgers. But, he’s still only 31 years old, and has remained remarkably durable, missing just eight of a possible 128 career games. He has also proven to be consistent, averaging 48 receptions for roughly 620 yards and five scores each year.

After spending seven seasons in Green Bay, Jones established a new career high in 2014 with 73 receptions in Oakland, easily the most catches for any player currently available. Given the conservative nature of the Raiders’ offense though, Jones averaged just 9.1 yards per catch, significantly below his career mark, for a total of only 666 yards.

The Seahawks, Giants, and Chiefs have also reportedly inquiries on Jones since he was released by the Raiders on May 4th.

    They should sign him. He knows the offense inside-out, and he can provide a veteran presence in their locker room.
