WR James Jones Considered Steelers Before Signing With Raiders

Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones signed a 3 year, $11.3 Mil contract with the Oakland Raiders today. According to Ian Rapoport, Jones considered signing with a few other teams, including the Steelers, before ultimately choosing the Raiders.

While that might be true about his childhood fanhood, I’m sure the Steelers wouldn’t be able to compete financially. Jones saw 61 receptions for a total of 837 yards and 3 touchdowns last year. Granted, Aaron Rodgers was out for much of the season. The Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders to the Broncos a few days ago, and are likely to lose Jerricho Cotchery to the free agency from the looks of things.

The Steelers host Lance Moore for a visit tomorrow. Other free agent wide receiver visits will likely be on the horizon.
