Fullback Greg Jones visiting the Texans

Publish date:

The Houston Texans are hosting free agent fullback, Greg Jones, who most recently played for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones was drafted by the Jaguars in 2004 in the 2nd round (55th overall) out of Florida State University where he originally was recruited as a linebacker.

In Jacksonville the 6-1 and 265 lbs. fullback cleared the way for one of the best runningbacks in the NFL in Maurice Jones-Drew. Drew found out Jones was visiting the Texans and this was his reaction.

He has appeared in 117 games for the Jaguars in 9 seasons starting in 67 of those games. Jones has the ability to run and catch the ball as a fullback, his pass catching ability will be a welcomed sight for the Texans offense. The Texans seem to be on to him for his ability to clear holes and give the Texans a real fullback that this offense missed last season.
