"They're going to go with the young guys," agent Frank Bauer said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
After failing to find playing time for him during the regular season, coach Mike McCarthy conceded this offseason that Janis is "an ascending Green Bay Packer" and "just a young man who needs to play."
Jones ended up leading Green Bay in receiving yards (890) and touchdown catches (eight) last season. Although he specializes in outmuscling defensive backs at the catch point, he was a primary culprit in a slow-footed wide receiver corps that sabotaged the Packers' offense for months at a time.
Unable to separate from coverage, Jones too often fails to give his quarterbacks an open read until the structure of the play breaks down. It was telling that he was available for the Packers to sign off the street last September after leading an inept Raiders aerial attack in receptions (73) and touchdown catches (six) in 2014.
Turning 32 years old later this month, Jones has garnered some interest from other teams, per Bauer.
"He's a class act, off and on the field," Bauer said.
