Thomas Jones demands trade, Briggs holding out?

Thomas Jones asks to be traded -- Wed May 24 10:23 pm --
Wants to be paid like a #1 RB, not Benson's nursemaid...
That camp marks the first mandatory off-season commitment for veterans. Whether running back Thomas Jones and linebacker Lance Briggs report will be the most closely monitored story line. Jones left the team's voluntary off-season program and expressed a desire to be traded when he finally grew tired of making less money than backup Cedric Benson. Talks for a long-term contract extension for Briggs broke off shortly before the NFL draft. Agent Drew Rosenhaus represents both players. Rosenhaus has had high-profile clients who have held out in the past. (The Chicago Tribune)

I think the team needs two good running backs, so hopefully Jones gets over his ego trip, returns, and accepts Benson is one of the teams best prospects and he will be backing him up.
