The reason the Bears wanted Thomas Jones instead of Anthony Thomas is because Lovie Smith is installing the St. Louis Rams/Kansas City Chiefs offense, and they need a Faulk/Holmes type of receiving threat at RB, while Thomas is better suited for ballcontrol.
If a trade like this goes down, it tells me the Cowboys are not very fond of the RB's on the board after Steven Jackson. Most analysts have said its a weak year for OT's and RB's. Anthony Thomas might be better than everyone in this draft after Steven Jackson.
