Report: Chiefs, Jets Show Interest In RB Thomas Jones

New, comments

The New York Jets released Thomas Jones this week due in large part to a large bonus he was due. I speculated earlier that Jones would be a good fit with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Well, it appears the Chiefs agree with me (for once), according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.

Thomas Jones is drawing interest from the Chiefs, as well as the Jets, according to a league source.

After announcing his release Monday, the Jets now appear to be interested in bringing back their leading rusher for a lesser price tag.

Jones, 31, is coming off an impressive season in which he rushed for over 1,400 yards in tandem with rookie Shonn Greene.

Jones doesn't have a ton of wear on his tires considering his age but he is coming off of a season in which he had a career high in carries so that's certainly a concern.

The Chiefs have expressed interest in adding a bigger back to complement Jamaal Charles.
