Felix Jones will meet with, and work out for, the New England Patriots this week.
Ex-#Cowboys RB Felix Jones is visiting #Patriots today and tomorrow. The plan is for him to work out, I'm told. Visited #Eagles recently

Per NFL.com the Bengals, Eagles, and Patriots are the front runners to sign the 26-year-old free agent running back. Jones, a former 1st round pick out of Arkansas, has played his entire 5 year career in Dallas where he has logged 569 rushes for 2,728 yards (4.8 avg.) and 11 touchdowns. He also averages 2 catches per game played, 8.4 yards per catch, and 3 receiving scores. Jones also has the ability to return kicks.
It's worth noting that today (May 8th) is Felix Jones' birthday. This is obviously not an NFL stat, but I wouldn't be traveling to Boston on my birthday unless I thought the Patriots interest was legitimate.
