Jones went to high school in San Jose. He also played collegiately for San Jose State before being selected by the Packers in the 2007 NFL Draft.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was in the Packers front office for five seasons (2007-11) while Jones was in Green Bay.

Jones had a career-high 817 yard receiving last year.
