Jets | Players unhappy with Jones release

Tue, 02 Mar 2010 07:07:05 -0800

Rich Cimini, of the New York Daily News, reports the release of New York Jets RB Thomas Jones is a decision that stung several veterans on the team. "I can tell you, it's not going to be a popular move in the locker room," said one player, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "We loved T.J. The man loved the game and put it all on the line only to get dumped after his best season. I think you should reward players for performance. You dump him but give LB Vernon Gholston another shot? Doesn't make sense." OG Alan Faneca said it would be difficult to replace Jones' intangibles and production. "It just goes to show the business side of the game, when such a productive guy like T.J. is released," Faneca said in an e-mail. "To be so close last year, and then for T.J. not to be there with us going after the ring again is what hurts."
