The Oakland Raiders reached agreement with wide receiver James Jones on a three-year deal, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Jones, who will turn 30 on March 31, ranked second on the Green Bay Packers last season in both receptions (59) and yards (817), the latter of which was a career high despite missing nearly three full games because of a knee injury.
He has played the majority of his career snaps as an outside receiver and rarely has lined up in the slot, but his size makes him a good target in the red zone. In 2012, he caught a career-high 14 touchdown passes.
Three years ago, coming off the NFL lockout, Jones did not draw strong interest on the free-agent market and re-signed with the Packers for three years and $9.6 million.
ESPN.com Packers reporter Rob Demovsky contributed to this report.
