I personally love the idea... Thomas Jones has me and hopefully the chiefs organization that he has simply lost his explosiveness... and rightfully so. He is 33 I think. Battle is a 3rd stringer and a mediocre one at that.
Slaton is 25 with a solid amount of upside and we could get him for cheap. There are a lot of concerns surrounding him with injury and fumbleitis...
But at this point what do we have to lose?
