Packers wide receiver James Jones was asked by the Green Bay Press-Gazette if he still believes they can have three receivers finish with 1,000 yards this coming season.
“I do, I do,” said Jones, even though not one Packer receiver hit the 1,000 yard mark in 2012.
Jones says they have a chance to step up with Donald Driver and Greg Jennings gone.
“It’s exciting and we’re all excited because we know the departure of Greg and Donald means more opportunities for us. Do you want to lose guys like that? No, but it gives us the chance to step up.”
There’s no way any team will ever have three receivers gain over 1,000 yards in a single season unless they expand it to 20 games.
