Just came across the Twitter machine via Adam Schefter:


Filed to ESPN: Thomas Jones signs in Kansas City: two years, $5 million. Chiefs have their running back. No need for Willie Parker to visit.

I'm stoked about this signing...good money, good back. Things are starting to look up for KC!!!! :bananen_smilies046:

I think he was a backup plan unless they couldn't iron out Jones' deal.

To be honest. I didn't think we would be able to sign him. This is a great signing!!!

Great find. This is one guy that I've been wanting all along. He is the perfect complimentary back to JC. I really hope we get some guys that can run block. If we can run the ball next year, Cassell will have a breakout year.

Great signing Pioli!!!!

This is a signing that makes me feel all warm and awsome inside. Charles is a great RB but if he had to do it all alone with nobody to give him a breather I don't know how well he would fair. Jones had 1400+ yrds in 09 add that to the 1100+ yards Charles had and we have a backfield that should scare opposing defenses. With every defense gearing up to stop our running attack Cassell will throw the ball at will, but our WR's need to catch the damn ball!

This is great news on so many levels. Now we don't have to "hope" a good RB is in the draft! Plus, he will be a perfect match for Charles!

ESPNs Chris Mortenson just said the Chiefs were one of his favorite sleeper teams, even moreso with Jones now.

Alright my first sticky!

I thought Twitter was dumb, until I learned most analysts like Schefter post the latest happenings there first. Now I'm hooked!

Possibly the biggest adavantage to this signing is the fact that we can now put to rest the notion that we need a HB in the mid rounds of the draft.

And the price has little bearing on my feelings in the matter. I am not fearful of "overpaying" our players. I am more fearful of underpaying them.

this just may be the beginning of a proud franchise returning to its glory on a nice and easy track...signed 2 good coaches to run the team,keeping the players around who showed they want to win here and the signing of chambers and now jones is just showing me how serious the team is about getting back on top where we belong

So why, then, is Willie Parker coming to town?

Signing TJ is a great start to Free Agency, when combined with us locking in Chambers for a few more years.

Now let's get some blockers and defense!!!

According to Adam Schefter's twitter page they cancelled the meeting with him.

Great job Pioli on signing Jones.Now go get lilja,and another good reciever.I think the reciever will probably come in the draft.Then get that Big rred D-fense in shape and we will all be happy.Like they say D-fense wins championship.I agree on that but you also have to have decent offense.

YES!!!!

This is great news... I agree we need a few more pieces esp. OL but this makes our offense so much more potent... Jones is a straight up monster and could start for most teams, like I said, we now have the best RB tandem in the league... Dont tell me Carolina, Stewart was nice til he got hurt, but he got hurt... Maybe Tennesse or Dallas but I still think we have the best combo at RB...

Now... RG and C are biggest concerns imo.. maybe that Pouncey, the center from Florida with pick 2a? Add Lilja and we have should have a decent to good OL... I would like a true no. 1 reciever but Chambers and Bowe can hold their own...
Bottom line our entire team is better with bringing in a pro bowl RB in Jones..

Chiefs signed Weigman today for to improve our situation at C and have Lilja coming in on monday presumably to fill a spot at RG.

I actually believe the LEFT side of the line is the biggest concern.
