2011 Green Bay Packers Roster: Re-sign, Release, Or Replace James Jones For The 2011 Season?

Wide receiver James Jones is a valuable contributor to the Green Bay Packers' offense. Because the team frequently uses formations with 3 and 4 wide receivers, Jones is often on the field despite not being a starter. Should the Green Bay Packers re-sign, release, or replace James Jones for the 2011 season?

Here are some of the reasons to re-sign and replace James Jones. All stats are courtesy of ESPN.com and NFL.com.

Re-sign #1. 2nd on Receiving Totals For the 2010 season, Jones caught 50 passes for 679 yards. He averaged 13.6 yards per reception. Jones also brought in 5 touchdowns.

Jones' touchdowns and yardage totals were both 2nd on the team behind only Greg Jennings. His 50 receptions were 3rd on the team. Donald Driver was only 1 catch ahead of Jones for 2nd place.

Despite Driver starting ahead of Jones on the depth chart, Jones did outperform Driver slightly during the 2010 season. Jones could handle a larger role in the offense if Driver begins to decline.

#2. Schematic Fit Jones is 6'1" and 208 pounds. He runs fairly well after the catch, making him a great fit for how the Green Bay Packers utilize their wide receivers. Jones had 301 yards after the catch. Only Jennings had more among the tight ends and wide receivers.

#3. 1st Downs 33 of Jones' 50 catches went for 1st downs. His number of 1st down catches were better than both Jordy Nelson and Driver.

Replace #1. Drops Jones struggles with drops at times. He's been with the team for 4 years and hasn't been able to completely solve the problem. It's difficult to be optimistic about Jones' drops when he hasn't shown significant improvement in 4 years. At this point in his career, Jones' drops are holding him back from becoming a reliable receiving option.

#2. Fumbles Jones had 3 fumbles during the 2010 regular season, including a critical lost fumble in the Week 3 20-17 loss to the Chicago Bears. He had more fumbles than any other tight end or wide receiver on the team. Jennings had only 2 fumbles, despite making 26 more catches than Jones.

The lack of ball security is a significant problem for a wide receiver on the Green Bay Packers. The team's offensive scheme expects its receivers to gain yardage after the catch. Defenders will have the chance to force a fumble.

Opinion Jones is talented, but ultimately inconsistent. Drops have been a recurring problem for him. But Jones did set career highs for some of his numbers during the 2010 season.

Jones should be an unrestricted free agent with the conclusion of the 2010 season. This may or may not be affected by a new collective bargaining agreement.

I think the Green Bay Packers should give Jones a modest contract offer if he goes into unrestricted free agency. With their offensive system, the team definitely needs at least 3 quality receiving options. Donald Driver is expected to retire within the next 2 to 5 years, leaving a starting spot open. Jones or Jordy Nelson would be the likely replacements for Driver at this point.

However, the size of Jones' contract offer should be tied to his problem with drops. He clearly has recurring issues with reliability on the field and doesn't deserve a starter's contract. A contract offer with incentives about his number of receptions per drops or something similar could be a creative way for the team to protect itself.
