Bears sign Kevin Jones

Bears sign running back insurance in Jones :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Bears

One-year deal - $605,000

Considering he was a 1st round pick, he's fallen quite a bit.

Sounds like a good pick up for them. When Jones has been healthy he has been pretty productive. In a run first offense he could be really good if he doesn't get hurt, especially when paired with a grinder like Matt Forte. Really the Bears never should have gotten rid of another Jones who matriculated in the state of Virginia, but live and learn I guess.
It has taken a long time, but I have finally realized that nothing I say about the Redskins will have any effect upon anything the Redskins do.

ZOMG Vet min lol. But good pickup for the Bears. I man crush Matt Forte but going into a season with one good back isn't really a good idea, though I still have hope that Georgia Southern Alum Adrian Peterson might be able to do something.

Plus the revenge factor should help Jones average at least 4 YPC.

Wow. Good pickup for them though considering the glaring hole they have at running back. I know they drafted Matt Forte, but you need a vet back like Jones. He is very good, he just played for a bad team IMO.

Best thing the Bears did since they signed B. Lloyd, oh...wait a minute....

Jones has been underrated for years, problem is, he's never healthy. The Bears got a steal, and they should know, they played him twice a year. This helps their offense a lot...especially on check downs since he's a top notch RB receiver.
