Gang Green Nation Weighs In On Thomas Jones' Possible Replacement

The Jets are hosting free agent RB LaDainian Tomlinson this weekend and reportedly plan to put the "full court press" on to sign him. Reports are also indicating that the Jets would be willing to pay LT in the same price range as Thomas Jones, who just signed with the Chiefs.

SBNation's Jets community, Gang Green Nation, doesn't understand why the Jets would go for Tomlinson if the money were equal.

I was fine with letting Thomas Jones go. In fact, I probably would have let him go. It's not that hard to find quality young backs. It gave the Jets a chance to get younger and cheaper at the position. What I don't get is letting a locker room leader like Jones go for a guy almost as old, who will cost almost as much, and isn't half as productive.

I tend to agree. Jones is one year older but is coming off two consecutive seasons of over four yards per carry. LT hasn't done that in the last two years.
