Former Lions RB Jones Still w/ Interest in Playing for Hometown Eagles


RB Kevin Jones still wants to come home.  The Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that the back, who will have a workout for teams tomorrow, still has a desire to play for the Eagles in the 08 season.  “I’m still interested in the Eagles, but the situation has to be right,” said Jones. “I’m not ruling out any team. I feel really good. I’m not in any pain, there’s no discomfort, and I’m able to make my cuts. I feel great. I can’t wait to work out for these teams. I know I can still play in the NFL.”

Jones played his high school ball at Cardinal O’Hara, and has eyed the Eagles since his release from the Lions.  He suffered a torn ACL in his right knee back on December 23rd vs the Chiefs, but feels that he’ll be ready to contribute to a team this season.  Jones last year ran for 581 yards on 153 carries for the Lions, and in his four year career has 3067 yards rushing and 24 touchdowns.

It’s believed that the Titans, Cardinals, Bears and Saints are some of the other teams that have an interest in Jones, who was the Lions first round pick back in 2004 out of Virginia Tech.
