I just found this on NFL.com:
Turner also gushed about Thomas Jones, agreeing with head coach Lovie Smith's assessment that Jones is a complete, every-down running back.
"I think Thomas Jones can be an outstanding back," Turner said. "I saw him in college. We played against him at Illinois, so I studied all his film.
"I think he's very explosive and very elusive. He's great at seeing the holes. He has tremendous vision and a great burst coming through. I think he can be a very effective inside runner, but he's also good on the perimeter."
Could this mean they were just laying smoke on the talk about grabbing another back,or are they just pumping Jones up so he doesn't become disgruntled?It's so hard to tell with the Bears sometimes what their intent is.
