Eagles sign Matt Jones | 5 things you need to know

REPORT Eagles sign former Redskins Colts RB Matt Jones

The team is expected to sign form Colts and Redskins running back Matt Jones on Wednesday, ESPN and NFL.com reported. One of which included waiving Jones from the roster.

Jones, who is just 25 and is a former Redskin and Colt, hasn't gotten much action over a three-year career, but you may remember him for his 135 yard performance against Philly.

He racked up 950 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns, as well as 377 receiving yards in 27 catches in his 20 games (seven starts) with Washington. He's big (6-foot-2, 239 pounds) but has not done much in terms of yards after contact in his career.


The Eagles want all of the running backs. Jay Ajayi, who leads the way but has a history of injuries, is flanked by former undrafted free agent Corey Clement and recently re-signed veteran Darren Sproles.

He will have a tough time earning a roster spot with the Eagles, however, despite the team losing leading rusher LeGarrette Blount to Detroit via free agency.

Jones will compete for a roster spot with the teams other running backs, which now include Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood, Donnel Pumphrey, and undrafted free agent Josh Adams. Josh Adams also figures to get a look in short yardage situations during camp and preseason.
