Found May 08, 2013 on 60 Max Power O:
Former Dallas Cowboys first-round draft pick, running back Felix Jones has a second team interested in his services. Jones visited the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, according to Chris Wessling of NFL.com. Jones never lived up to his 1st status, but is an effective back when not used as lead back. Jones is exceptionally explosive on screens and is very good in the passing game that would work in Chip Kelly’s offense. Wessling writes: ‘In that sense, Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense is a good fit. Jones is no more than a rotational player, which would be his role with the Eagles.’
