James Jones says he did get a RFA tender

Divisional Playoffs - Green Bay Packers v Atlanta Falcons Getty Images

We passed along a report over the weekend that said Packers wideout James Jones did not receive a restricted free agent tender from the Packers.   We’ve now got a quick update to pass along as well.

Jones said on WBAY (via Jason Wilde) that he did, in fact, get hit with a tender from the Packers.

It probably won’t make a difference because players with four years of experience like Jones are expected to be unrestricted free agents after the next CBA is reached.  Still, the Packers played it safer with Jones than was originally reported.

You can now continue with your Monday.

    The tender hit him right on the numbers but he dropped it. Hence the confusion……

    Maybe when he gets his new contract he can buy himself a set of hands.

    Exactly, if it had been thrown 2 feet over his head he would have made a leaping one handed grab while fighting off his agent.
