James Jones is an intriguing option for the Jacksonville Jaguars, especially since he has been successful in the past and the Jags were looking to add a veteran wideout during the offseason. Justin Moore has already covered this option for the site, but I want to highlight something he wrote a week ago:

"James Jones is an experienced wide out and his knowledge of Greg Olsen’s offense could benefit a young offense that is trying to grow. In his years in the NFL he has shown that he has strong hands and also the ability to go up and get the ball when quarterbacks lob it up to him. He was fairly consistent last season as well, playing in all 16 games, finishing with 73 receptions and six touchdowns."

Those are meager highlights, but they are still worth noting. Jones thinks he would be a fit with the Jags, but Moore thinks that he ultimately isn’t a fit for the Jaguars. I’m inclined to agree, but if the Jaguars do find themselves needing that veteran presence still, Jones could be an easy move.

The ceiling is low here, but if other young players can’t deliver on their potential then it may work out.
