I'm surprised nobody has mentioned his name since his release. According to the Chicago Sun Times, Kevin Jones was released from the Bears a few days ago. I was just wondering, with the Lions lack of veteran backup help for Kevin Smith and the lack of free agent running backs, would it be a good move to bring Kevin in for a one year contract to be a backup? I'm against it for a couple of reasons. One, I think he is way to injury prone and would be a waste if he was injured again in the pre-season. Two, I don't think he is the correct alternative for the Lions in obtaining a running back because the draft is really where they should find one. Maybe someone can convince me otherwise.
