Green Bay receiver James Jones has been in Greg Jennings shadow for a while now, but not anymore. Jones quietly put together a great 2012 season, all he did was catch 14 touchdowns, which led the NFL for receivers. So when he says that the Packers receiving corps will survive without Jennings, he’s not blowing smoke. Along with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, Jones feels they have the nucleus to have three 1,000 yard receivers. Furthermore, he thinks Jennings departure will give them more opportunities to shine, and step out of Jennings shadow. "I think now it's an opportunity for me, Jordy and Randall," Jones said, via Tom Silverstein of JSOnlie.com "That's why you play the game; you want to play this game to help your team win, just make plays. To lose a guy like Greg, a big-time playmaker like Greg, it opens up the door for us to make plays. "But we've been making plays with Greg there; it's just going to give us more opportunities." "I think that's what's good about us, we're all up for the challenge," Jones said. "We've got a great coach in Edgar Bennett. He's going to have us ready. I believe we still have one of the best receiving corps in the game. "I believe this year we have three 1,000-yard receivers on our offense, whether that includes Jermichael, me, Jordy, Randall; I just think we will. That's what I believe. And I think our offense will pick up where we left off."   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
