Either way I think he would be an excellent signing. He is a much better receiver than his stats indicate. The Hags have just been incredibly poor at utilizing him.
Or anyone else not name MJD. heh

The exact rule is that any vested veteran signing a one year contract for the minimum base salary will count against the salary cap as if he were a player being paid the minimum for a player with two accrued seasons. A bonus of up to $65,000 may also be paid, but the entire bonus amount is applied against the cap. The allowable bonus increases a couple of times over the remaining life of the CBA.

Minimum salary for a player with 7-9 accrued years (Jones has either 8 or 9) is $840,000. Minimum salary for a third year player is $555,000. That means we could pay Jones a total of $905,000 ($840,000 + $65,000) and have him count only $620,000 against the cap ($555,000 + $65,000).

Glad you asked.

My sources say he's signing the deal tomorrow. Would have signed it today, but there's an Arts & Crafts Festival at Reliant that has drawn huge crowds of like 20 or 30 people, so they're holding off until tomorrow.

You can believe me or not, I don't care. That's wut my sources told me.

The days of the FB being needed in the NFL are on the way out, but for now this would make sense for the vet minimum. Seems like he stays in excellent shape and can play.

Greg Jones is a great, great FB. He is a vicious blocker in the vein of Leach. He's not quite as good of a blocker as Leach, but he has decent speed and good hands. He is old, but he is a rare athlete. Would be a huge win if the Texans can sign him.

To be straight, the way I interpret the new rule, that SHOULDN'T be a flagable offense since he used his forearm and not the "crown of his helmet" to deliver the blow.

Anyone have confidence that the zebras will make the correct distinction?
I don't.

I would be very, very pleased with this signing. I've been a Greg Jones fan since he came out. This would help out Arian significantly, and I think he can also be that pass catching threat we like at FB, and we need that badly with the loss of our current FB/TE.
