Favorite James Jones memory?

After announcing his official retirement from the NFL on Wednesday, James Jones will be remembered amongst Packers fans as one of the most memorable receivers to play in the Aaron Rodgers era.

He finished his career in Green Bay ninth on the all-time receiving touchdowns list with 45. His numbers weren't mind-blowing, but he seemed to always be there in crucial situations.

What was your favorite memory of Jones? Whether it be during his 2007-2013 stint with the Packers or his lone 2015 season in which he substituted as Jordy Nelson's replacement.

With a class act like WR Jones, who should have been retired with a one day Packer contract, all the memories throughout his career are good ones. However, the best one had to be his comeback to save the day/year for the Packers after WR Nelson became injured. He will be truly missed, and hopefully he will enter the Packers Hall of Fame. God speed James.

Also love during his first camp where teammates said his hands were so soft and smooth when catching fastballs from Favre that it sounded like he was wearing mittens when catching the ball. Been calling him "Mittens" ever since! Thanks for the memories Mittens!

Too many to come up with one. I guess I'd say, "Coming Back To GB" & "Turning Back The Clock" when we needed James to step up. That made me feel really Proud. Thanks for all the Memories James. You were GREAT!!

When he took a slant 60+ yards to the house with half a hamstring was pretty memorable.
