"I don't think (general manager) Ted Thompson wants him," Jones' agent Frank Bauer, told McGinn at the NFL Scouting Combine.
"I'm as high on Boykin as anybody in our building," McCarthy said Friday at the combine. "He had a heck of a year, and I still think he has another jump in him."
Jones missed two games in 2013 with a knee injury and played the final two games with broken ribs. At 30 years old he has the speed and route-running ability to be a solid veteran option on the open market.
Receiver depth in the draft and a flood of second-level talent in the free-agent market could push the price tag for Jones down.
The Packers have plenty of salary-cap space but plan to use most of it on the defensive side of the ball. If Green Bay does in fact let Jones walk, it has more to do with their confidence in Boykin than the high price of Jones.
