San Diego Chargers Sign James Jones

August 2nd, 2016

With Stevie Johnson now out after suffering a torn meniscus earlier this week, the San Diego Chargers have pounced on the watered-down free agent market for a veteran replacement. The team reportedly signed former Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders wide receiver James Jones on Tuesday. 

Jones, 32, recorded 50 receptions for 890 yards and eight scores for Green Bay last season. That was good enough for him to finish as the 26th-best fantasy receiver. Though, it's also important to note that Jones caught just 50 percent of the passes thrown in his direction. Not a good sign with Aaron Rodgers under center.
