Does this mean the end for AT in Chi-town? Can TJ become the back Arizona thought he could be?

I drafted TJ really late last year and he didn't pan out until too late, but he might be worth a mid-late round gamble this year.

Bleh, looks like a RBBC to me.

I would bank on Jones getting the majority of the work, since they want to implement a new offense there with the back making catches out of the backfield. But there's a good bet ATrain will mop up alot of the TD's...

Eh...

If he had signed with Dallas, or really any other team, I could envision him as a below average #2 RB. With the Bears, though... Blah.

Does Jones really fit in with Lovie's proposed useage of the RB in the offense?

he'll suck dont worry ;-D

im surprised at this. i would be afraid of both RBs now since he'll probably run a RBBC until one of them claims the job. unless AT plans on leaving...

My thought's as well! Pittman was the recieving back in TB, not Jones. Maybe Shea sees something that I've overlooked. In Az. he never showed any prowess for recieving(Actually, little peowess at all)All I can hope for is that he's not answering the phone still.

The bad news is they plan to play Jones at QB.
Seems to me that this is not much of an upgrade, if an upgrade at all. Thomas still is productive and they could have spent their monies elsewhere, IMO.

...Especially when the Bears are now claiming that A-Train is still the starter. They could have gotten a cheaper RB who can do what they want Jones to do at a fraction of the price. That's an expensive half of a RBBC.

Another brainy decision by the Chicago Bears!

As a Bear fan (and an A Train owner) I don't like this move. Where has TJ ever done ANYTHING? Big deal, he had a few halfway decent games with Tampa. He's a bust, plain and simple. He'll fit in just fine with Da Bears I guess.

yeah he was a great college player and has sucked it up in the pros. he had an ok season last year but he hasn't done anywhere near enough to earn that big ass contract. i think this signing is based largely on the feared P word. yeah, thats right .... potential.
