Green Bay Packers free agent wide-receiver James Jones is receiving interest from a range of NFL franchises, with the New York Jets said to be stating 'real interest'. 

The Jets are in serious need of a wide-receiver after an abysmal showing last year in the receiving game, with only one wide-out going over 500 yards. 

Jones is said to be the Jets favored target according to the New York Daily News

"The Daily News has learned that the Jets have expressed a real interest in Packers free-agent wide receiver James Jones. The Jets are hosting Eric Decker, arguably the top receiver in this year’s free agent class, on Wednesday. The team has not scheduled a visit with Jones at this point, according to sources."

The Jets best receiver in 2013 was Jeremy Kerley, and he remains with Gang Green, but touted premier wide-receiver Santonio Holmes has been released. 

Holmes was supposed to be the number one linchpin for the Jets receiving game when he arrived from the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.

However, that promise hasn't quite transpired for Holmes, with his best yardage year for the Jets mounting up to a poor 746 yards

Jones on the other hand could act as the perfect replacement for Holmes at a much cheaper price.
