NFL Free Agency Speculation: James Jones and 10 Backups Ready to Start

James Jones' future in Green Bay depends completely on the fate of four-year players once free agency is initiated.

If it were up to Jones, he'd be on his way out, despite the team's Super Bowl win.

"I know we have something great here. This team can win some championships for the next couple years," said Jones. "But, at the same time, I do want to be a starter. I don't know if that'll ever happen here with Donald (Driver) playing until he's 40."

If he becomes an unrestricted free agent, Jones will command much attention on the open market. The 27-year-old has progressed steadily in the Packers offense in his three years, catching a combined 10 touchdowns for 1,119 yards over the last two years.

One of the biggest knocks on Jones has been his butterfingers in clutch situations in Green Bay, but his issue with dropping passes has been far overstated.

In 2010, Jones did drop six passes, but he ranked behind players like Reggie Wayne, Miles Austin, Wes Welker and even his teammate Driver who all dropped more passes.
