The moment we have all been waiting for has arrived! The Chiefs have made their first big splash into the free agency pool and the water is fine. Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs got Jones for a 2 year, 5 million dollar contract.
This is a bargain! Jones rushed for over 1400 yards last season! he will be the big back the team is looking for. The thunder to the Jamaal Charles lightening if you will. the contract is reasonable and is only 2 years so if T.J. loses his skills the Chiefs aren’t on the hook for a long term, expensive deal. Very nice move by Scott Pioli.

The Chiefs have ended their search at tailback.
After kicking tires on Thomas Jones and Justin Fargas and lining up a visit with Thomas Jones, the Chiefs have agreed to terms with Jones, according to a league source.
Jones signed a two-year deal; he’ll get $3 million in 2010 and $2 million in 2011. He also is eligible to earn $500,000 in incentives.
Sound off, Addicts! What do you think of the Chiefs new combo in the backfirled: J.C. and T.J.?
