    Only in Philly do people b!tch about signing a 3rd string RB...Only a cheap 1 year deal no biggie. More bodies here the better, Jones is better fit to play in a spread offense anyway so he might have a couple nice runs here and there.

    One of Kelly's major beliefs is to use tempo to create explosive plays in the run game. I think Jones is basically a perfect fit for this offense.

    I can tell you he's frustrating. He'll get five carries you want to throttle him, then he'll get one for 20+ if not all the way. I'm a bit surprised he signed with Philly because he didn't seem to respond well to criticism in Dallas.
    Gang Way!

    Im sure he is there to compete for the kr job. If he doesnt win that, I dont think he makes the team.

    I'm not judging a player by his performance in Dallas. Lets face, watching Dallas games you often wonder what the hell they are thinking. Some of the worst play calling ever.

    If he's fast and healthy, let Felix come in and work for a job. If Chip likes him, I will like him.
    Chip is the man!

    No doubt about that. Drafting is even weirder. They threw a first for Felix and gave him no blocking, knowing he needed it more than your average back. This Chip guy spends a 4th on an OT and then picks up Felix with little mileage for a song on a one year deal. I'm not saying Felix is our next Jimmy Smith debacle, just that Jones gives away value alot, and smarter teams generally scoop it up more than give it away.

    We shall see with Felix.
    Gang Way!

    Miguel Maysonet waived.

    Felix Jones got that much closer to making the team as the 3rd or 4th RB/KR.

    At worst he will push Brown to be #2. No risk here, but a chance for some reward.

    Both Caplan and PFT are reporting Maysonet is gone. Wonder if we're signing Trevor Scott.

    They signed some undrafted TE that did well in the rookie camp. Will Shaw from Youngstown State.

    This was surprising to me, but the kid must have stunk it up in the first rookie camp or done something off the field.
