Schefter: “Taylor was a solid pickup, but Jones’ signing topped it.”

From ESPN.com:

Jones a better buy than Taylor

“After the Bears paid $7 million in guaranteed money to Chester Taylor, the Chiefs landed Thomas Jones for two seasons for $5 million. Talk about value. The $5 million also was $800,000 less than Jones was scheduled to earn this season in New York before the Jets released him. Taylor was a solid pickup, but Jones’ signing topped it.”

I remember the Chiefs were reportedly interested in Taylor but he was scooped up by the panicky Bears. Looks like patience sometimes pays off. Way to go Mr. Pioli!
