Former Jets RB Thomas Jones To Visit The Chiefs On Monday

New, comments

Well, well, well. Not too long after I wondered why it's gone so quiet on the Thomas Jones front, we hear from ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Kansas City Chiefs will host the veteran running back for a visit.

Jones will be traveling to the Chiefs facilities on Monday.

The Jets were reportedly interested in retaining him but some thought he was too prideful to return to a team that just cut him.

Jones was scheduled to receive a $4 million bonus before being released by the Jets so it's hard to gauge what kind of contract he's looking for. At age 32 31, his long-term options are likely limited.

Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has said on numerous occasions that finding someone to complement Jamaal Charles is a priority. The Chiefs were also reportedly strongly interested in acquiring Darren Sproles until the Chargers tendered him at the first and third round level.

I'd say it's looking good for the Chiefs right now. Usually teams don't want a player to leave without a contract if the visit goes well.
