Texans hosting FB Greg Jones today. I can confirm report they’ll bring in Tyrann Mathieu at some point before draft.

In fact, if Greg Jones played in a city other than Jacksonville, he probably would have made a Pro Bowl by now. Vicious blocker. #Texans — Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) March 26, 2013
The Houston Texans are hosting free agent fullback, Greg Jones, who most recently played for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones was drafted by the Jaguars in 2004 in the 2nd round (55th overall) out of Florida State University where he originally was recruited as a linebacker.
In Jacksonville the 6-1 and 265 lbs. fullback cleared the way for one of the best runningbacks in the NFL in Maurice Jones-Drew. Drew found out Jones was visiting the Texans and this was his reaction.
“@adamschefter: Jaguars FB Greg Jones is visiting the Texans today.” Noooooooo!!!!!!

He has appeared in 117 games for the Jaguars in 9 seasons starting in 67 of those games. Jones has the ability to run and catch the ball as a fullback, his pass catching ability will be a welcomed sight for the Texans offense. The Texans seem to be on to him for his ability to clear holes and give the Texans a real fullback that this offense missed last season.
