Packers reportedly moving on from WR James Jones due to age

It doesn't look like Packers wide receiver James Jones will be returning to Green Bay next season.

The team reportedly told Jones' agent, Frank Bauer, that they aren't interested in bringing back the 31-year-old wideout due to the number of young receivers on the team, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"They're going to go with the young guys," Bauer told the Journal Sentinel.

Davante Adams, Jeff Janis, Ty Montgomery and Jared Abbrederis are all younger receivers who will compete for playing time behind Randal Cobb and Jordy Nelson, who missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL.

After Nelson's injury, Jones became the Packers' No. 1 option, catching 50 passes for 890 yards and eight touchdowns. Bauer said that he's heard from teams interested in Jones, but is not ready to predict where his client will end up next season.
