Jamaal Charles Would Approve If Chiefs Signed Thomas Jones

The Kansas City Chiefs are bringing in former New York Jets RB Thomas Jones for a visit on Monday. The man he's expected to complement if signed, Jamaal Charles, thinks adding another running back would be a good move for the Chiefs.

"These days you need an extra back at my position to carry the load because people these days get worn out," Charles said Saturday evening at the 101 Banquet Awards according to 810 WHB. "I think it'd be real good to have another running back."

Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has said finding Charles some help is a priority this offseason. It appears Thomas Jones has a good chance to be the help he was talking about.

"Thomas Jones," began Charles, "I know people are saying he's getting old, but he did a good job last year. He can still break tackles and score on the long distance."

Charles (and fantasy owners) would be the most affected by a Jones signing but he appears to be content with the possibility of bringing in another back.
