Default Re: FA FB Greg Jones to visit Texans today

PFT has confirmed that Jones will visit the Texans on Tuesday. An eight-year veteran who has spent his entire career with the Jaguars, Jones became a free agent on March 12. In 2011, he helped clear paths for Maurice Jones-Drew, who led the league in rushing that year.

And MJD isn’t happy about Jones’ potential departure, tweeting “Noooooooo!!!!!!“

The Jaguars had been talking to Jones before the new league year began, and Jones (like many other free agents) has drawn little interest on the open market.

Beat me to it! I was just about to start a thread about this.

This would be a good addition imo. A definite improvement at FB w/ a true blocker that has proven he can run the ball effectively when needed. Sign him up!

We have been missing our mauler in the middle ever since Vonta left and I think our goalline running game has suffered a bit because of that. If he can run block, he should be picked up, Clutts is expendable.

I've been hoping we'd get this guy or at least find someone who can really replace Vonta. We need that kind of guy on offense more than we needed someone like a James Casey.

Greg Jones was rated 3rd out of 25 FBs in blocking for players taking >25% of team snaps.

That ex-Texan was 1st.

Is there any reason you keep posting these PFF tidbits without every linking to the article? Their site is atrocious to search, and I often want to see what the list looks like for myself.

I think Jones could surpass that ex-Texan if he leads the way for Arian. Jones accomplished that #3 rating while playing on a team w/ slim to no passing attack & against loaded fronts & yet he still cleared the way for his ball carrier. I like him & think he could thrive in this offense to surpass that former Texan. His ball carrying abilities could also prove very useful in tough short yardage situations.

Yeah, but if you have a guy who is a pass receiving threat at FB then you could work a play to pass him the ball inside the 10 and get an easy TD...wait...what?

He looks like a machine and I AM for going after him for the vet minimum but how old is he? Don't FBs wear out pretty fast?

Depends on the player. Some guys can be quality blockers for a really long time. Greg Jones might not be Lorenzo Neal but I think he will still do a nice job for at least 2-3 years. Maybe longer.

If you can find an upgrade without breaking the bank, you do it.

Same thing with Jones; he was pretty decent last year, but he's no Lechler.
