4.22 per carry over the last 2 seasons means he sucks:huh:

You guys know Zeke is like 2.0 a carry, right?

Dude may not be Derrik Henry, but he is a hell of a lot better than Zeke.
I think around here we're not satisfied unless a back is averaging 5 yards per carry and carrying the ball 300 times per season. This isn't like signing Darren McFadden in 2015. Jones is here to either split the load with Pollard or be the nuclear option if Pollard doesn't come off his injury well or any back we draft doesn't prove ready to contribute. Not saying it's a great signing, just that I see no reason to complain about it. It would be different if we were needing a bell-cow back, but that's not the expectation. Now, the expectation could be wrong, but that's why we hopefully get a back in the first-third rounds of the draft.

Tyjae Spears .... late in the 3rd round.

Wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't make the final roster. They just wanted a veteran as insurance for now but things can and will change between now and August.

He’s got more rings than the entire team lol
You never miss a chance to crap on your favorite team the Cowboys do you? Or maybe the Cowboys aren’t your favorite team which based on your history would make more sense.

Where running backs should be drafted in todays NFL
We should trade our 1st 2nd and 3rd round picks for all the 4th round picks we can get and never draft any player above the 4th round. That is a Superbowl winning formula if I ever seen one

He’s 25 with two superbowl rings and lots of tread on the tires. Maybe he is a good luck charm. Probably won’t cost more than 1.5 million range.
