James Jones Would Love To Play In Carolina

It seems as though Jones is having to drum up his own interest.

The Jets reportedly had interest in former Packer James Jones when free agency kicked off. However all has gone quiet on that front. Jones speaking to ESPN seems to have a destination in mind:

I would love the opportunity to play for the Carolina Panthers,” Jones told Josina Anderson of ESPN. “I would love to play with Cam [Newton].”

Now this isn't that notable. There have been no reports about Carolina making an offer. Although with them losing Smith and LaFell this Spring, it makes a lot of sense.

What this tells me is he is not even close to signing with the Jets, something I and many others were hoping for. It also shows he may not be in hot demand, so maybe a bargain can be had.
