Report: Jets to release running back Thomas Jones


Despite a big 2009 season that helped the team get to the AFC Title game, it looks as if Thomas Jones’ career in New York with the Jets is over. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports via his Twitter account that Jones will not be restructuring his contract with the Jets and will be released this week. Jones, who will become a free agent on March 5, was slated to receive a $3 million roster bonus March 9 and a $2.8 million base salary in 2010. The Jets are ready to move on as they have good depth at running back with Leon Washington and rising star Shonn Greene. Jones will for sure be a hot player on the free agent market, and will get plenty of looks from teams looking to upgrade their run game.
