Kevin Jones comes back

Profootballtalk's own Mike Florio has reported that Kevin Jones has re-signed with the Bears.  I like this deal a lot; it provides solid depth behind the overused Matt Forte.  In addition, KJ should be at 100% this year because now he's two years removed from major knee surgery.  I'd estimate that KJ will average 8-12 touches per game in order to give Matt a much deserved reprieve.  KJ and GW will battle it out in training camp for the backup spot.

UPDATE: Per the Sun Times, here's how Jones' contract is broken down (Helmet tip: SackMan):

According to a league source, Jones receives $1 million in bonus money--a $500,000 signing bonus and a $500,000 roster bonus. His base salary this year will be $1 million. He was a workout bonus worth $350,000 in 2010 and a base salary of $1.15 million.
