Filling void left by James Jones
Adams helping Packers WR corps

The Green Bay Packers will be looking to replace the reliable production of receiver James Jones this season.

He’s returning to Lambeau Field on Friday night as an Oakland Raider in a preseason game.

It will be the first Packers’ home game second-round draft pick Davante Adams. He’s one of the guys looking to replace Jones.

The rookie had a productive career at Fresno State, where he led the nation with 131 catches last year. He also set a school career record with 38 touchdown catches.

Not only must Adams pick up the system, but he needs to get used to quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ standards. No. 1 receiver Jordy Nelson said the learning curve can be tough, though Adams and other young receivers are making progress.
