    Jones Out in Motown...

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/category/rumor-mill/

    We’ve gotten confirmation from another source that running back Kevin Jones has been informed by the Detroit Lions that he will be released.
    Ouch.

    Re: Jones Out in Motown...

    Lets pick him up and have the deepest backfield ever! :P

    but seriously, there are probably people who will want us to do just that

    Thats pretty harsh cutting him after Free Agency has been going for a while.
    Had they cut him before FA, he could have gotten a pretty hefty salary with some other team

    They released Kalimba Edwards too.

    My buddy is a Lions fan, so this kind of info is great.

    Is Kalimba Edwards any good?
    Would he fit in here?

    Re: Jones Out in Motown...

    Has Jones been signed yet?

    If not would he be worth a look as Chester's eventual replacement as AD's primary backup?
    We could let him basically take this year off to get any needed clean-up surgeries and fully heal (basically sign him and put him on IR if needed).
    After that we would have the best RB depth in the NFL hands down, and it would allow us to have some flexibility in the trade market.

    Pretty much proof that the Lions are most likely taking RB in the first round...most likely Mendenhall.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    backup runningbacks are a dime a dozen.
    If someone were to sign JOnes as a FA, they'd be shelling out pretty big dollars, far more than he's worth.
    We could easily draft a runningback in the 4th round next draft and get a guy who could be a good backup.
    Look at all the starting RB's in the league, and even the better backups, and see on average what round they were drafted.
