According to ESPN, the New York Jets are going to let Â Thomas Jones become a free agent. Â Jones rushed for 1,402 yards and 14 touchdowns on 331 carries last season. Â But he is 31, and who knows if he can keep it up next season, plus Shonn Greene is a beast. Â Shonn Greene did great during the playoffs, a lot better than Thomas Jones, so I can see why the Jets see Jones as disposable. Also the Jets will be getting a healthy Leon Washington back this season, who will spell Shonn Greene, no need to keep 3 great running backs on one roster.
Jones should be picked up by someone fairly quickly, he showed that he could be a bruising RB. Â But he probably can’t be a feature back all season long. Â So where will he end up? Â Look for somewhere in the division. Â Patriots seem like a good choice to me, the love old RBs
Some big names at RB have been cut this year, Tomlinson, Westbrook, and Jones…. Who’s next?
