Jones did not practice Monday due to a strained hamstring, ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones could miss a few more days of practice, though the injury is likely not something that will be a long-term issue. After signing a three-year deal with Oakland in March, the veteran will open the season as the Raiders' top receiver.
The Raiders have signed Jones to a three-year deal, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones, who turns 30 later this month, recorded 59 catches for 817 yards with three TDs in 14 games for the Packers this past season. At 6-1, 208, he has the size to help out in the red zone, as evidenced by his 14-TD output in 2012, but the added opportunities that he figures to see in a Raiders uniform could well be offset by moving from an offense led by Aaron Rodgers to one with a fluid QB situation.
Jones indicated Sunday that he would "love the opportunity to play" for the Panthers, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With that in mind, the report notes that Jones is on the Panthers' radar, as is fellow wideout Jerricho Cotchery. There's certainly room for both players on the Carolina roster, given that the team needs to stock up at the wide receiver position, after parting ways with Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn, and Domenik Hixon.
The Packers are prepared to let Jones walk in free agency, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green Bay has not extended Jones a contract offer and more than likely won't, as Jones' agent, Frank Bauer, said bluntly, "I don't think [GM] Ted Thompson wants him." Age seems to be a big factor for the Packers, as Jones will be 30 next month, and Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are understandably higher priorities. Jones led the NFL in 2012 with 14 touchdown receptions, but finished with just three scores last season.
Jones said that he would "love" to return to the Packers next season, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones is set to test the open market after hauling in 59 catches for 817 yards and three touchdowns in the final year of his three-year pact with Green Bay. He'll be 30 when the 2014 season begins, and while Jones has corrected the drop issues that plagued him early in his career, it's entirely possible the Packers will move on and look to re-up Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb instead. Both Nelson and Cobb will be free agents after next season.
Jones had two receptions for 20 yards on five targets in Sunday's playoff game against the 49ers.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

In 2011 Jordy Nelson was the anomaly, scoring 15 touchdowns on only 96 targets. Last year it was Jones, taking 14 to the house on a mere 98. Oddly, despite the gaudy scoring numbers, Jones had a pedestrian year, averaging only 8.0 YPT and 12.3 YPC, way down from his 11.5 and 16.7, respectively, during the 2011 season when he scored only seven times. It was his 20 red-zone looks (T-6th), 11 red-zone scores (2nd), nine looks from inside the 10 (T-8th) and six inside-the-10 scores (T-1st) that contributed to the unsustainably high TD totals. At 6-1, 208 and with good speed, Jones has decent physical tools, but he managed only 11 catches of 20-plus yards and one grab of 40 or more. The best thing Jones has going for him is his status as one of the top-three receivers in an Aaron Rodgers-led offense now that Greg Jennings skipped town for Minnesota.

2012

Being a 55-target, No. 4 receiver is fairly useless – unless you play for the Packers. Jones averaged a whopping 11.5 YPT and 16.7 YPC, giving him 635 yards and seven scores despite just five red-zone looks all year. At 6-1, 208, and with good speed, Jones is able to get open down the field – he had three catches of 40 yards or more despite the low target numbers. Heading into 2012, Donald Driver will be 37, and if Jones could some of Driver’s targets, he’d be worth using in most leagues. Just keep in mind that last year’s second-round draft pick Randall Cobb is quicker and more versatile than Jones and could see a bigger role in the offense. And in any event, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley are Aaron Rodgers’ top targets.

2011

One of the Packers' four main wideouts, Jones showed flashes at times but ultimately was inconsistent, dropping six of his 87 targets and averaging just 7.8 YPT despite playing with one of the best quarterbacks in the league. And it's hard to forget his momentous drop during the first half of last February's Super Bowl on a slant that almost certainly would have gone to the house. At 6-0, 207 and with good speed, Jones has the physical tools to make plays down the field, and he's dangerous after the catch. After re-signing with the Packers, he's probably the team's No. 4 wideout with Donald Driver returning and after Jordy Nelson's strong showing in the Super Bowl.

2010

Jones caught 32 passes for 440 yards and five touchdowns in 2009. He could probably start for a number of NFL teams, but Green Bay has a number of quality WR. Jones will compete for the third WR spot with Jordy Nelson.

2009

Jones made a major statistical regression from his rookie to sophomore year, but much of the drop-off can be attributed to a knee injury that limited him to ten games. His 2009 productivity will hinge on the outcome of an expected training camp battle between Jones and Jordy Nelson for the No. 3 receiver spot, although even if one is declared a "winner," the two will likely be frequently rotated in and out. Both make for decent late-round picks in deep leagues.

2008

After an impressive rookie season where he flashed some potential, Jones is locked in as the Packers' number three receiver. Jones should approach his season totals from 2007 (47 receptions, 676 yards), but could rise or fall depending on his new quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.

2007

Jones is a speedster who has a good chance of making an impact for the Packers as a special teams player, if not the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver position. His greatest assets are his ability to make plays in traffic and gain yards after the catch.
