Bears add RB Kevin Jones

LAKE FOREST, IL — The Chicago Bears signed running back Kevin Jones to a one-year contract today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Originally drafted by Detroit in the first round (30th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft, Jones rushed for 3,067 yards and 24 touchdowns on 761 carries (4.0 ypc) in four seasons with the Lions. Jones also has 141 receptions for 1,006 yards and three touchdowns in 53 career games (49 starts). During his rookie year, Jones was named a NFC Pro Bowl alternate after he finished fifth in the NFC with 1,133 rushing yards on 241 carries (4.7 ypc) with five touchdowns. Last season the Virginia Tech product rushed for 581 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns on 153 carries (3.8 ypc) while hauling in 32 receptions for 197 yards for the Lions.


What do I think of this? Good move. I used to hate playing againt the Lions on Madden '08 because Kevin Jones is so quick in that game lol But in real life, good move by the Bears. Kind of a 'no brainer' because we had no star runningback. Matt Forte and Garrett Wolfe and Kevin Jones are all very similar runningbacks but Kevin Jones is a proven player. He'll be fine with the Bears. Kevin Jones gives us a definite starter at runningback and adds heavy depth to the position. Jones can bang with the big boys, he's proven that. Since he came to the Lions he always ran all over the Bears. Glad to see he's on our side now.

Now...what are we going to do about a Quarterback??? lol
