Battery Creek alum Greg Jones, who spent all 9 seasons of his NFL career in Jacksonville with the Jaguars, has signed a 1 year deal with the Houston Texans on Wednesday. The team confirmed the signing on their twitter account.
Jones also commented on the signing on Twitter saying "Love and respect my Jax peeps but thrilled to sign w/ the @houstontexans! Where r all my texans fans?"
The Lowcountry native hasn't gotten a lot of touches during his time in the league. He's totaled over 1300 yards and 13 touchdowns in his tenure, but he's generally considered one of the best blocking backs in the league. Jones was graded as the 3rd best by ProFootballFocus for 2012 and will now try to open holes for Arian Foster.
Jones was a 2nd round pick out of Florida State in the 2004 NFL Draft.
