After drafting Joe Adams it looks like the Panthers are still interested in upgrading the talent at the position, as Jones would likely compete with David Gettis and the aforementioned Adams for the #3 receiver spot in training camp. His knack as a deep pass catcher would fit perfectly with the Panthers' offense, and the more weapons for Cam the better. Furthermore, Jones was the Texans' punt returner last year- adding more help on special teams.
Given the Panthers propensity to bring in a player, then almost immediately make a contract offer it would seem there is significant interest, and McClain believes the feeling should be mutual.
If I'm Jacoby Jones, I'd do everything I could to play with #Cam Newton and the Panthers. An up-and-coming team with playoff aspirations.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) May 3, 2012
I couldn't agree more.
