Are you still here spouting the same tired crap you were saying three years ago? TJ's a turd! TJ's a turd! It's very, very old. Three consecutive solid years from TJ now. He was in freaking Arizona. RB wasteland. Now he is on a team that knows how to run the ball and he is showing why he was drafted where he was. If he was going to get busted for drugs, it would have happened by now. How many years has it been since he was hanging with Boston? Get on to a new topic already.
In some of my JJ readings, I stumbled across info on Thomas as well ... the family seems pretty set together (and I know JJ was on academic pro). From what I have read, TJ is just an extremely diligent workout junkie. Whether or not that's fabrication, I have no idea. But innocent until proven guilty.
The unknown factor here is Rosenhaus. His history is to ask for a lot of money and threaten holdout, something which I'm afraid that Jones leaving the summer workouts is leading up to. Jones had the tenth most yards in the NFL last year - I can certainly see Rosenhaus asking for a contract to put Jones in the top ten RBs, something I doubt the Bears will want to do.
On the other hand, supposedly Rosenhaus has a good relationship with the Bears front office. Also I don't think TJ has a great deal of bargaining power since he has 2 good backs behind him ready to step in, so possibly Rosenhaus will see that and play nice (which seems unlikely to me).
