Maybe I don’t understand the veteran salary benefit, but how is that actually advantageous here given the rule of 51?
The Veteran Salary Benefit (VSB) rule was created by the 2020 CBA and replaced the old Minimum Salary Benefit (MSB) Rule. These rules were put in place to allow veteran players to be signed to Cap-friendly deals instead of being replaced by cheaper, more Cap-friendly, younger players. The Veteran Salary Benefit allows veteran player to be signed to 1-year contracts with the applicable minimum salary (based on the player’s service time) and a small signing bonus ($152,500 in 2022), but only have to count that player at the salary level of a player with only 2 years of service time (plus the bonus).

Always thought Ronald Jones bulked up way too much for the NFL. He had amazing burst early in his college career and looked like he'd be a Jamaal Charles-like prospect. Later in his college career, he seemed to go for being more physical.

Here he was in 2015

So he is an upgrade in spite of the fact he was a healthy inactive the first 10 games last season because he couldn't crack the line-up? Okay.
Jones is an upgrade albeit a slight one.

are you holding it against jones that his owner didn’t blindly force the coaches to play him?

blindly given 200 Carrys in Dallas do you think jones could have averaged more than the pathetic 3.8 you that Zeke did?

Bucs were the worst run offense in NFL ... and Fournette and Jones led that fray ...

and supposedly Bucs benched Jones after one mere fumble vs Dallas ?

Wrong year....Jones was with KC this year. He had a very good year for TB the year they won the SB.
