Wide receiver James Jones is now a free agent after the Raiders released him on Monday

On Monday Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie announced the news that his wide receiver James Jones, 31, has been released by the team on Monday.
Jones was a third round draft choice of the Green Bay Packers in the 2007 National Football League Draft out of San Jose State University.
Jones played three seasons with the Spartans college football program when he decided to start his career playing football in the National Football League in 2007.
Jones played seven seasons with the Green Bay Packers from 2007-2013. After the end of the 2013 football season he signed a three year contract with the Oakland Raiders before the start of the 2014 football season.
The Raiders decided to release Jones after one season since they hired from the free agent market wide receiver Michael Crabtree and from the 2015 National Football League Draft wide receiver Amari Cooper who played his college football at the University of Alabama from 2012-2014.
The Raiders will save $3.5 million dollars paying the salary of Jones by releasing him so he can seek employment with another football team in the National Football League before the start of the 2015 football season.
Jones has one Super Bowl ring as a member of the 2010 Green Bay Packers that won Super Bowl XLV. Leaving the Raiders which was Jones hometown team could prove to be a blessing in disguise.
