Felix Jones is now an Eagle.
According to ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins, Jones signed with the team on Tuesday, thus bringing an end to a five-year career with Dallas. Fellow 2008 first round pick, cornerback Mike Jenkins, left last month, signing a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders but Jerry Jones insists neither player was a bust.
Jones will serve as a backup in Philly, which is what he has been doing here ever since an injury in 2011 allowed DeMarco Murray to step in and take over the starting job. He played in all 16 games a year ago and even got a handful of starts as Murray was dealing with a foot injury, but he posted just 406 yards on 111 carries for a career-low average of 3.6 yards per carry.
