Post REPORT: GB and Miami talking James Jones trade
REPORT: GB and Miami talking James Jones trade
The NFL Network is reporting tonight the Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins are working on a trade that will send WR James Jones to the Dolphins. Miami head coach Joe Philbin knows Jones well after coaching him in Green Bay. Jones is a good fit and knows the West Coast offense.

Yea, another under performing WR that has issue with drops. Will fit in nicely in Miami. Will he ever be bummed. Brilliant move Miami. Super Bowl here Miami comes.

Stupid arse move by Miami, no matter what the compensation happens to be.

I think this would be a smart move, Jones is far better than any one of our outside receivers. He would immediately be our 2nd or 3rd best receiver if we were able to get him. I've been a fan of this idea from the beginning. It's just a good fit in my opinion. I'm hoping we can get Jones for the 6th we got in the Davis trade plus the 7th we just acquired for Cook. If the Packers are serious about moving him they'll pull the trigger for a pair of picks.

i'm betting that we trade a 4th for him.
He's a strong physical wide receiver with speed and runs nice routes. He has improved on his drops.
He had a strong year as a #3 wide receiver. I think he can play second fiddle to Davone Bess this year.

I eventually would like to see Rishard Matthews crack into our lineup this year with a 3 receiver set of Bess/Jones/Matthews.

Anything more than a 4th round pick and I would be upset.

Naanee is a great practice WR, he has alligator arms in game. Anyone who can catch a ball should make the team.

Wallace
James
Bess
Naanee
Hartline
Hogan

EDIT: Actually, I don't wanna see Hogan on the team. Maybe Mathews or Fuller?

I think it's a very good move. I mean, he knows the system and is a good receiver. He found the end zone 7 times and averaged 16.7 ypc last year. His hands are inconsistent at times, but a guy like this will open up this offense a bit. I like it.

Well said Dave, I agree. Jones will help at receiver and that is what the Dolphins needs and he knows the systems inside and out, so no learning curve either, other than getting some timing down with Tannehill. Let's hope that this happens versus relying on someone else's castoff.

Absolutely love the move if it happens. How can any of us look at it as a bad move when we see what the receivers have looked like this pre-season. By the way, I have seen plenty of drops that would have resulted in first downs already, and that was our biggest problem last year. "DRIVE KILLERS"... I have seen the ball hit the receivers in the hands too many times and fall to the ground. Crazy thing is, it always seems to be on third down when all that needs to be done is to catch the ball. No matter if it was RT or Moore, the drops have been there.

I am all for bringing in someone that wants to truly compete and take a position on this team and run with it. Besides Bess, I don't think any of us can be sure that when the ball is thrown, we're not all crossing our fingers that it gets caught. My standout in pre-season for the receiving group has been Matthews. Kid has definitely earned a shot to play with ones in my opinion.

We'll get hosed on this trade because we're trading out of desperation.

Hosed for trading a late round pick for potentially WR#2, WR#3? Don't see that happening.

He's an excellent three point shooter. Will definitely open the floor up for Wade and Lebron.

I didn't know Green Bay had a basketball team...

He'd probably ride the pine all season long. Probably end up in the coaches dog house. If only he could play defense. :grin:

He's an under performing NFL WR. Proven. Right now, Miami could cut everyone but Hartline and Bess and its doubtful anyone would even pick them up.

The team needs to stay calm and wait until tonight. GB is stacked at the WR position and I would hope Ireland knows this. Jones is a #3 at best, sorry guys to burst your bubble. i say we wait until 1 of the 2 prospects that looked good during the preseaon to get released. They are burners and accoarding to the GB newspapers, the staff is really high on them. My strategy would be to force GBs hand. Maybe they keep the 2 prospects and release Jones. If not, grab the prospect for free that they release. If GB trades Jones, they get to keep there 2 prospects....DO NOT OVERPAY FOR JONES.

Again, everyone in the world knows how poor the WR unit on the Dolphins is ..... especially Green Bay. We're the ones soliciting them. They're in the power position. I will be absolutely shocked if Ireland doesn't overpay a little.

The guy was a former 3rd round pick, no way they get anything more than a 4th. I would imagine Ireland will try to trade a couple of late round picks like the 6th we got for Vontae and the 7th we got for Cook. Trading two picks for a potential #2 or #3 receiver is a nice move that will help us get through this season until we can use on of our multiple high draft picks to add a bigger weapon or two for Tannehill.

No way a 4th........the Packers are just feilding offers before they cut him. Maybe that conditional 6th we got from Indy.

Thank you, at least someone is paying attention other than me regarding the WR corps in GB. If they think this kid is gonna slip through the waiver wire, they are crazy. GB knows how to draft and find talent, this is simply a numbers game. Watch, everyone cut from the Fins pass through waivers....lol

To be clear, we're looking for upgrades to the receiving Corps, but to Armondo's point it's not good to be in this position.

You mean a defacto-upgrade because you can't possibly get any worse from what we already have with the waiver wire? Ya, I find no solace in that.

GB wouldn't cut JJ because he's a valuable veteran with experience and production on the field.
Only way Miami end up with JJ is through a trade.

Wonder what overpricing means? 2nd?

It means they know they are not going to be cutting him, so if you want him then you have to pay our price.

Not sure who the poster was that said Miami would be dealing from a strength stand point. Its GB that has the strength point.

Told you guys. They are over-pricing Jones because they know the Dolphins are desperate. That's life in the NFL when you're the have-not.
