Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones has gone from sometimes unused after thought, to a key cog in the Packers lethal passing game. With the retirement of Donald Driver, and impending departure of Greg Jennings, Jones now see’s himself as an important fixture along side Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Jones was on NFL Network yesterday and talked about the future of the Packers passing attack.  From the statements Jones used, Green Bay will be alright. Jones for his part thinks the Packers can have “three 1,000 yard wide receivers next season.” “It’s exciting because it means more opportunities,” Jones said. “As long as we can stay healthy, it means more opportunities for me, Randall (Cobb) and Jordy (Nelson). When you lose playmakers like Donald and if Greg doesn’t sign back, that’s two less guys we gotta give the ball to which means you’re going to get a lot more action.” Jones was also asked about his potential to have a 100 catch season? “I think a 100-catch receiver is gone out of our offense just because Aaron (Rodgers) spreads the ball around so much,” he said. “If anybody had a shot to get 100 catches, I’d probably say Randall because he’s in the slot and he’ll probably get a lot more targets. “I can see me, Jordy and Randall getting about 80 catches a piece. I can see us all having over 1,000 yards.”
