The NFL Network is reporting that Kevin Jones has agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears.

Jones will receive a one-year deal for the league minimum and hope he has an opportunity to show what he can do.

Kevin Jones was a 1st round draft pick of the  Detroit Lions in the 2004 NFL Draft.  He was the 30th selection and is out of Vriginia Tech.

Realistically Jones could find himself as the backup by the time the regular season rolls around.  If the Bears like the idea of keeping Adrian Peterson in his special teams roll and Garrett Wolfe proves he is just a situation back, we will need a full time guy to spell Matt Forte or step in if an injury occurs.

Keep an eye out for a scouting report from our Detroit blogger.

 

The Sun-times is reporting the deal is for 1-year at $605k.

 

Here is a look at his career numbers:
