Default Houston a possible landing spot for Thomas Jones?

Adam_Schefter Best I can tell, there are four potential landing spots for former Jets RB Thomas Jones: Cleveland, Seattle, San Diego and Houston.

At this point, any near or post 30 rb that gets cut will be linked to Htown.

He said the same about LT. We are going to be one of the "hot spots" for the veteran RB's this offseason.

Thomas Jones has kindof put a hole in the theroy of the 30 year old running back declining. 2009 - 1402 yards 14 td's and turned 31 before the season started. 2008 - 1312 yards 13 td's and turning 30 before that season.

I would like to see Jones here before LT. Just my !

post what you think about this
I agree with the article. We won't be able to fill all of our needs with impact players because we have 4 or 5 immediate needs and just 3 picks in the first 3 rounds. If we add Jones then we can pass on Ryan Mathews in the draft, trim down our need list, and focus more on the secondary and the lines. I, for one, would love to add him.

I wouldn't like passing on Mathews, but you can't get everyone you want. We need to do what's best for the team and I think adding Jones and pairing him with Slaton & Foster will be good for the offense. Then we can focus on other needs in the draft.

As I said in the thread in the NFL forum, I would rather it be him than LT.

You're absolutely right. I'm just really looking forward to the day the Texans have their own marquee running back and not a stop-gap retread or a change-of-pace/third down back masquerading as a franchise running back.

Adding Thomas Jones or Ladainian Tomlinson would be a great move on the Texans part right now. We would not have to worry about a running back till later in the draft. Possibly getting Joquie Bell or another back.

What would yall think if The Texans made moves to acquire Thomas Jones and Darren Sproles. I know that would be a big offseason move that isn't typical, and that the Texans were giving up on Slaton and his injury.

And if we could pry Marshawn Lynch from the Bills, we would fill our RB need at the same time as alleviating our grieving over losing Dunta.
