After spending a year away from Green Bay, it looks like James Jones is ready to return. According to reports, the wide receiver is expected to sign with the Packers after flying into Green Bay on Sunday.

Jones arrived in Wisconsin just one day after being cut by the Giants.

"That's the plan, man," Jones said of signing with the Packers. "Hopefully something gets done. I flew all the way over here, so hopefully something gets done. I'm excited man, it feels good to get back and be back home, so we'll see what happens."

The Packers have been short on veteran receivers since they lost Jordy Nelson to an ACL tear on Aug. 23.

Jones spent seven seasons in Green Bay after the Packers selected him in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft. The receiver left via free agency in 2014 and signed with the Raiders. After being surprisingly cut in May, Jones signed with the Giants where he lasted until he was cut Saturday.

During his first stint with the Packers, the 31-year-old went over the 600-yard mark in five of his seven seasons, including 2013, when he finished with a career-high 817 yards.
