Reports: Chargers signing WR James Jones
The San Diego Chargers will sign veteran receiver James Jones, according to multiple reports.
Jones was reportedly scheduled to work out for the team on Tuesday. The receiver joins Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin in the San Diego receiving corps.
The Chargers lost receiver Stevie Johnson to injury this week after he tore his meniscus, putting his season up in the air.
Jones, 32, returned last season to the Packers after he left Green Bay in 2014 following seven seasons with the team to play in Oakland. Jones rejoined the Packers for similar reasons, signing with the team after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL.
Jones totaled a career-high 890 yards with the Packers last year, scoring eight touchdowns. In his nine-year career with the Packers, Raiders and Giants, he’s amassed 5,861 yards and 51 touchdowns.
