Entering free agency, former Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones told Around The League's Dan Hanzus that the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers were on his radar as potential landing spots.
Faced with an apparently quiet market for his services, Jones now tells ESPN's Josina Anderson he wants to play for the team with the most glaring wide-receiver vacancy in the league.
This message was approved by Jones' agent, no doubt.
There's reason to believe the interest is mutual even if the sides have yet to discuss contract parameters. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported late last week the Panthers were "lurking" on Jones after releasing Steve Smith.
The last time the open market approached Jones' availability with a collective shoulder shrug, he ended up re-signing with the Packers. Easily the best receiver available entering the second week of free agency, Jones ought to do better this time around.
