The Oakland Raiders have announced that they have signed free agent wide receiver James Jones.

The 29-year-old was allowed to test the free-agent market by the Green Bay Packers after seven seasons with the club.

After failing to generate interest in the first week of free agency, the Raiders snagged Jones up on a reported three-year deal as they continue to rebuild their team under general manager Reggie McKenzie.

Jones recorded 59 receptions for 817 yards in the 2013 season, scoring three touchdowns.
