James Jones is headed west, and headed home.
The former Green Bay Packer signed a three year deal with the Oakland Raiders.
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.
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.
