Default Jones gearing up for comeback in NFL

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/ne...p&type=lgns

SALINE, Mich. (AP)—Kevin Jones darted to the right, planted his foot, pivoted and sprinted back across a patch of grass.

“That is what teams can’t believe I can do,” Jones said Thursday morning after doing a shuttle run in 4.3 seconds.

Soon, NFL teams will get a chance to witness what seems like a remarkable comeback from ACL surgery.

Jones has a workout scheduled for scouts on June 28 in Saline.

New England, Chicago, Green Bay, Tennessee, Tampa Bay, Denver, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Buffalo and the New York Jets are among the teams who have shown interest in Jones.

Talented back who I doubt will ever be a #1 but could profile as a backup/3rd down/change of pace type back.

from the same article

"Jones is vying for a job along with free agent running backs such as Shaun Alexander, Chris Henry, Ron Dayne and Cedric Benson."

I put him 3rd in that list.

everything is always fine and dandy in the offseason.


let's see how that body reacts to getting hit in week 1. damaged goods at running back is always a risky investment. id prefer to stay away.

I'd probably put him ahead of Dayne and Alexander for sure, maybe Benson as well. Isn't Chris Henry a receiver?

I'm surprised the Bills are interested in him.
I thought we were set with Lynch, Jackson, and Omon/Wright.

Kevin Jones is, or was, one of the more talented young backs in the league. He was very impressive his rookie/2nd year in the league, i really thought he was going to be something special. He has a great size/speed ratio, and he is really talented, i thought for sure he was going to explode in Martz's offense that year. Of that list, id take him over alexander, dayne, and benson, as I think if he is healthy he has more potential then the lot of them.

With that many teams interested in him, I dont think he'll come to Buffalo. If he were to come here, he would probably be the #3 back.
I could see him going to Chicago because he could fight for the #1 spot right away.

At first I thought it was the RB from the Titans but I'm pretty sure they meant Travis Henry.

San Diego should be interested. Right now they have no depth behind LT. I shudder at the thought of Darren Sproles being a feature back in the NFL.

He's a nice change of pace back but I agree that it would be problematic if LT got hurt.

I agree, he had the total package, great inside and outside runner, receiver out of the backfield, breakaway speed, before injuries started to take their toll I thought he was going to be a star...I would take him over all those RB's on that list, since he will most likely be a 3rd to 4th RB and his carries will be limited I think his potential is higher...No way I'd take Alexander who reminds me of Troy Hambrick at this point of his career.

Good, I think he could be a capable #1 back if he finds a capable o-line. I think he could be a good fit for the Chargers as the #2.

Why are the Titans still looking to add RB depth. They've drafted about 18 of them already.
