Jones said the Jaguars did make him an offer, but he felt like Houston was the best fit at this point in his career. #Texans
He wants a ring... and we all know when the Jags are gonna get there....

Great signing dude's a monster...

I like the philosophy of letting some other teams overpay and spend stupid money to make big splashes. Then the Texans are able to get a few solid contributors at a cheaper price. I would rather get 3 or 4 above average players in key areas than a single superstar.

The tension for me comes in not knowing if those "cheaper" guys will sign with us. So far this off season is looking pretty good. Here's hoping for an excellent draft!

Can Jones carry the rock too though? Could've swore he also played back up to MJD a while back.

This is a solid signing. We finally get a real FB who can block to replace Leach. We never were the same in the running game after Leach joined the Ravens.

He was a college tailback and has filled in at tailback when the Jags have had injuries so yes.

That's the thing, he is a very good fullback but is not a TRUE fullback and is more versatile than most.

John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL 2m Texans will sign more veteran FAs who they can get with affordable deals. I expect an OT, ILB, WR and perhaps a NT.

John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL 2m Texans have 9 draft choices, including four of the top 95. I still think they'll draft a WR in first round.

John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL 2m I don't think this will happen, but if NT Casey Hampton would do a deal close 2 minimum 2 stay home, I think Texans should check him out.

I think this is obvious considering we currently only have 54 players on the roster. Several will be rookies, but that's quite a bit of FAs to get to the 80-90 camp roster number

My response wasn't necessarily towards you, dj. Just thought I'd point it out

No other indication other than "win-now" mode for the Texans.

If they can sign a veteran WR, it would be real nice.

They're up to the cap now, but they can still wiggle some room (at the expense of releasing Schaub next year, LOL).
