Browns, Chargers Among Those Interested In Thomas Jones?

ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that the Browns are among one of four teams who might be showing interest in the veteran running back:

Best I can tell, there are four potential landing spots for former Jets RB Thomas Jones: Cleveland, Seattle, San Diego and Houston.

Browns blog Dawgs By Nature isn’t so sure if Cleveland is the most attractive scenario for Jones:

Jones was used in conjunction with the development of two young running backs — Leon Washington in 2008, and Shonn Greene in 2009. The reason I see the Browns having trouble signing Jones is that I think he has still has a recent resume to warrant a starting role on one of the teams in the league that needs a running back, particularly Seattle.

In an ideal scenario, I would like Jerome Harrison to receive a shot as the true No. 1 running back while we focus on other positions high in the draft. If Jones could sign on for one or two years as a heavily-used backup, I would certainly be in favor of the move. Jones will probably be the most attractive veteran free agent running back on the market though, so again, I have my doubts that the Browns would even be a contender in signing him as a backup.
