Another top RB cut, Jones has been one of the top backs over the last couple years. I'm sure he will find a home somewhere.

He's to old. RBs take a dive at 30 for the most part and this guy is 32. I wouldn't take a chance on him or Tomlinson. Westbrook MAYBE but probably not even him with his concussion issues.

Chester Taylor is the guy I would be looking for, I hope the Texans find a way to sign him. He's 31 but has less than half the carries that Jones has had over his career.

I think Thomas Jones is a physical freak and I think he has more to offer then both LT and Westbrook right now. I actually think Jones could work out great for a year or even 2 in Houston.
I think Chester Taylor is great, I had a debate with my buddy a couple years ago on who is better Ryan Grant or Chester Taylor. I think Chester is one of the most underrated players in the league.

TJ definitley slowed down in the playoffs last year. Huge drop off in production from the regular season. That said he would be a good fit for some team, i'd say he has more left in the tank than LT. I think he'd be a good fit in seattle, he could play with his brother.

Yeah what makes TJ more effective right now then LT is he is a physical freak, the guy is a workout machine. I think he can be like Ricky Williams last season which was pretty darn productive. I like him alot as a split back.

The production drop for running backs is nuts. Most of them hit 30 and their performance is literally night and day.

If you ask me, any team signing a 30+ year old running back is taking a huge risk. The Texans did it a few years ago with Ahman Green and got burned. That's why I don't want them to go after Jones.

I'm just saying TJ isn't your average RB. He is a physical freak, even for a NFL RB and that is saying alot. The guy is a workout warrior and that alone buys him a couple more years then most RBs. Even the elite ones like LT. I think the guy has plenty to give for atleast next season. I think Houston could really use the guy, maybe it would give Slaton some time to shape back up. I think he can still have a very nice future.

Slaton's gotta stop putting the ball on the ground, though. He's a nice little back, especially catching balls out of the backfield, but if he keeps turning the ball over he will never be a feature back again.

As far as Jones, you might be right, but I still think he's a big risk. The evidence is just to compelling IMO. If the Texans sign him I won't have a problem with it but it better be for no more than 2 years and at a bargain price.

I'm sure that is exactly what it would be, 1 or 2 years at a bargin price. I agree with all you said about Slaton. I think he has amazing hands for a RB and I think he could turn into a Reggie Bush like back. Not a feature guy but a guy that can do a little bit of everything. He could even be like Felix Jones is in Dallas. Just have to find the right guy to go with him.

If Felix Jones wasn't a china doll he would be a top 5 back in the league IMO

Big pickup for KC, I dont fully understand why he chose that venue, but more the power to him.

I hope this doesn't interfere that much with Charles becoming a feature back because that kid is an animal

Yeah, I would like to see what he can accomplish with a tougher line to block for him.

Charles definitely had a breakout year last year. I'm sure they will split the carries fairly evenly. They would be stupid to give the full time job to a 32 year old back that might not even be as productive as Jamaal.

I'm sure Jones will still be atleast as good as Charles next season. Charles is showing a lot of promise, but you can't dismiss 1400 yards last year by Jones. Like I have said before he is a freak of nature. I think the 2 will be a very nice combo. Should work great.

Charles is their back of the future and finished with 1100 yards despite having 29 carries 9 weeks through the season. You keep the momentum going with him. Hell, Jones was replaced on his team during the playoffs. Jones should without a doubt be the clear backup for that time or else they are making a big mistake IMO
