WR James Jones says he 'would love' to play with Panthers

Can you play wide receiver? If so, you should go try out for the Carolina Panthers. Their top two wideouts right now are Tavarres King @TKUnoDos and Marvin McNutt @McNutt7wr. They have as many receptions in the NFL as I do. The six WRs on current roster have all of five career catches. Wide receiver has to be a major priority for the Panthers' brass, and James Jones is trying to make their job easier. The free-agent Packers receiver is letting the Panthers know that he would like to be a part of the solution.
Jones told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Sunday, "I would love the opportunity to play for the Carolina Panthers. I would love to play with Cam (Newton)."
Jones, who turns 30 this month, has operated as a secondary receiver in Green Bay for seven seasons. He gained a career-high 817 yards last season. He scored 14 touchdowns in 2012.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jones is a very talented, physical, big-play receiver, although consistency has been a problem for him. I don't know if he can be a true No. 1 WR on a team. It's unknown if the Panthers have heavy interest in him, but Jones is smart enough to know that Carolina has a massive void at his position, so expressing his love to play there, feigned or not, can only help him.
