GREEN BAY – Former Packers receiver James Jones has been chosen for induction into the San Jose State University Sports Hall of Fame.
Jones played four years at San Jose State from 2003-06 and compiled 126 receptions for 1,496 yards and 12 touchdowns.
The bulk of that production came in his senior season (70 catches, 893 yards, 10 TDs), which led to being drafted in the third round by the Packers in 2007.
Jones joins a class of inductees that includes six other individuals and one team in San Jose State sports history. The induction ceremony will take place on Friday, Sept. 28.
Jones played a total of nine seasons in the NFL, eight with the Packers and one with the Raiders. After seven years in Green Bay, including the Super Bowl XLV championship, he left as a free agent to sign with Oakland in 2014 and then came back to the Packers for one more year in 2015 following Jordy Nelson’s season-ending knee injury.
With Green Bay, Jones recorded 360 receptions for 5,195 yards and 45 TDs. All three totals rank in the top 12 in Packers history in their respective categories. He led the NFL with 14 touchdown catches in 2012.
