Walter Jones, on the mend


For the first time since last season Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle, Walter Jones, worked out on the field with the team.

Jones worked out for the first time since he opted to get micro fracture knee surgery, which shortened his 2008 season.

Jones, who has been one of the NFL’s top offensive tackles for a decade, is 35-years-old and nearing the end of a stellar career.

Jones is planning on being healthy for training camp, which starts at the end of July, but if he is unable to perform the Seahawks will have to turn to Plan B.

This would involve moving their right tackle, Sean Locklear over to left tackle and play Ray Willis at the right tackle.

According to reports, the Seahawks signed Locklear to a five year, $32 million deal, mainly because the team feels he will eventually replace Jones.
