Eagles Work Out RB Felix Jones
The Eagles worked out running back Felix Jones today, a league source confirmed.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter first had the report.
Jones, 26, spent his first five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. He dealt with knee, shoulder and rib injuries last season and played in only 34.7 percent of the offensive snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. Jones (5-10, 215) ran for 402 yards on 111 carries, averaging a career-low 3.6 yards per carry.
For his career, though, Jones has averaged a healthy 4.8 yards per carry and shown the type of versatility that Chip Kelly covets. Last year, he caught 26 balls for 266 yards, averaging 10.2 yards per reception. Jones had 33 catches in 2011 and 48 in 2010.
He also has experience as a kick returner.
The Eagles have LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown as their primary backs, but there are depth spots up for grabs. Chris Polk is still on the roster, and the team signed undrafted free agents Miguel Maysonet (Stony Brook) and Matt Tucker (TCU).
Depending on his price tag, health and other options, Jones could be in the mix for a depth spot if he ends up signing.
