2014 NFL free agency rumors: James Jones receiving 'real interest' from Jets
On Wednesday, the team brought in Eric Decker for a visit, but they already appear to be setting up a back up plan.
If Decker leaves New York without a deal, the Jets are ready to focus on Green Bay Packers free agent receiver James Jones, who is reportedly generating "real interest" from the team but has yet to set up a visit.

If the Jets can add Jones, who will be turning 30-years-old this month, they will still need to search for a true No. 1 receiver in this year's draft. However, he would still represent a vast improvement over their current receiving corp that includes Jeremy Kerley, David Nelson and Stephen Hill.
