Chiefs notes: Thomas Jones coming to town?
By Bill Williamson
It is being reported the Chiefs have shown an interest in Thomas Jones, who was just cut by the Jets.
That is very interesting. I like it.
Last week, at the NFL combine, Kansas City coach Todd Haley said the team needs to get help for budding star Jamaal Charles. He will be best served if the Chiefs find another back that can run the ball 8-12 times. Jones could be the perfect player for Kansas City to pursue.
This signing would add a nice dimension if Kansas City can get it done.
Kansas City guard Andy Alleman has reportedly signed with Indianapolis. The Chiefs choose not to give Alleman a restricted free agency tender this week. He was acquired in a trade with Miami last year.
A day after not be able to land Anquan Boldin in a trade Kansas City re-signed backup receiver Terrance Copper. Copper played in 15 games and he had two starts for Kansas City in 2009. He was second on the team with 16 special teams tackles.
