James Jones is headed west, and headed home.

The former Green Bay Packer signed a three year deal with the Oakland Raiders.

ESPN reports the contract to be worth $11.3 million.

Jones grew up San Jose, California, about 45 minutes from Raiders head quarters, and attended San Jose State University, before being drafted by Green Bay in 2007.

Jones had a career high 817 receiving yards last season, but only managed three touchdowns, largely due to Aaron Rodgers missing a significant amount of time last season. 

In 2012, Jones hauled in 14 touchdown passes, leading the NFL.

The 29-year old receiver missed three games last year, but still managed the lead the Packers in receptions with 59, a number that would have ranked second on the Raiders last season.
