Good for Felix, but even better for the Cowboys

He's competing for a roster spot. He would be lucky to bethird on the depth chart.

You do realize that Shady McCoy and Bryce Brown are on the Eagles roster, right?

Jones is competing for the 3rd string RB job with two UDFAs, one being Chris Polk. He also could get reps at KR. This low risk move is worth the trouble.

He is a third stringer at best on our team so laugh all you want. If for some reason both Mccoy and Brown break their legs we have a former starting RB sitting their at 3 with prior experience playing on a team with no focus on the running game who probably has a chip on his shoulder. Good low risk move from Kelly.

Not sure why people are laughing at this.

The Eagles dont NEED him, so if he doesnt bring anything to their team, then its no skin off their back. No risk here at all.

Solid third option if he sticks around.

Should be good for a play here or there.

Eagles waived WR Marvin McNutt.


In order to give Jones a spot on the offseason roster. No real surprise here, as the Eagles are heavy at WR right now.

This is a good move by Philly. They get a guy who can probably be a good spell back or return guy to play in Chip's system.

Good move, Eagles.

It's funny how only Cowboys fans are laughing and making fun of this move both in this thread and the one in the Eagles Forum. I think they're still just angry over passing on CJ2K for Felix a few years ago.
