2011 NFL Free Agency Rumors: James Jones, Green Bay Packers WR, Interested In 49ers

And now with the lockout done, let a furious week of rumor-mongering commence!

James Jones just won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers, so it would make sense that he has a pretty high stock on the free agent mark. Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that Jones has "mixed feelings about free agency". He'd love to come back to Green Bay but also has to think about his family. He grew up in San Jose and played his college ball at San Jose State, so coming back to the Bay Area holds some natural appeal for him.

Aaron Rodgers loved to target Jones, particularly on 3rd down this season--Jones actually caught more balls on 3rd down than either Greg Jennings or Donald Driver, according to Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders. Jones did struggle holding onto footballs on a few occasions, but he provides Smith with a capable receiver with a solid understanding of the West Coast Offense.

Do you see James Jones working out for the 49ers? Where should he go this offseason?
