GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The Green Bay Packers lost free-agent receiver James Jones to the Oakland Raiders on Monday. But the Packers kept running back James Starks for another two years, and they brought in nose tackle Letroy Guion, who was cut by Minnesota 12 days ago. Jones was expected to leave, after his agent said a few weeks ago that Packers' G-M Ted Thompson didn't appear to want him back. Jones played seven years with Green Bay, with the team's 12th-highest career total for catches with 310. However, the Packers are well-stocked at the receiver spot with Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Jarrett Boykin -- plus back-ups Myles White, Chris Harper, and Kevin Dorsey. The draft pool is also expected to be well-stocked with wide-outs. At Oakland, E-S-P-N says Jones will get a three-year deal worth just over eleven million dollars. Guion is reportedly getting just over the 730-thousand-dollar minimum for a six-year veteran. C-B-S Sports first reported that Starks decided to stay with the Packers after he was scheduled to meet with Pittsburgh Monday. The four-year veteran is expected to continuing sharing time on the field with running back Eddie Lacy.
