James Jones Says ‘I’m Ready’ To Be Packers No. 1 Receiver

USATSI_8051903_154224518_lowresThe Green Bay Packers finished the 2012 NFL regular season with a 11-5 record and as NFC North division champions. The stage appeared to be set for Aaron Rodgers and company to make another run at a Super Bowl title under head coach Mike McCarthy, but didn’t anticipate second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers torching the secondary in the playoffs with a record-setting 181 rushing yards and four total touchdowns.

After a disappointing performance in the postseason, the Packers’ front office headed into the NFL off-season with the intention of cutting ties with a few of the teams big-name veterans.

The first move made by Green Bay was letting veteran wide receivers Donald Driver and Greg Jennings know the team had no intention of re-signing them. Driver retirement soon after the Packers were knocked out of the playoffs by the 49ers and Jennings has embraced his fate with every intention of heading elsewhere in free agency.

With Jennings likely to sign with a new team next month, the team will need to look for another No. 1 option in the passing game with wideout James Jones more than willing to assume the role next season via Bob Wolfley of the Journal Sentinel:

“I’m ready,” Jones said when asked if he was that No. 1 guy. “I work hard every year. I’m ready to take in that role if we don’t get Greg (Jennings) back. Hopefully, I can continue to have some success, make some plays and help my team win.”

Although Jennings will be headed elsewhere in free agency and Driver has officially retired, the Packers’ receiving corps is as talented as any in the NFL with Jones, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb leading the way.

There’s no question that there will be some competition as the team’s number one option in the passing game in Green Bay once training camp gets underway before the 2013 NFL season. Jones seems motivated to become Rodgers’ favorite target downfield, but will have his work cut out for him competing against Cobb and Nelson.
