  • Eagles take a one-year flier on Felix Jones

    Eagles signed RB Felix Jones to a one-year contract.
    Under new coach Chip Kelly, the Eagles are going to run, run it again and run it some more. So even though "Fragile Felix" faceplanted after DeMarco Murray got hurt last year, taking a flier on a back that holds a career yards-per-carry average of 4.79 makes some sense. Jones figures to battle Chris Polk and UDFA Miguel Maysonet for No. 3 duties behind LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown. He can also help on kickoff returns. It's somewhat reminiscent of the Eagles' 2011 free-agent signing of a declining Ronnie Brown. Brown ended up with just 42 carries on the season and then moved on.

      Dennis Dixon, now Felix Jones? What is this, the reincarnation of the 2008 draft?
