Could the Chiefs Make a Move with the Jags for Greg Jones?

There has been some speculation about the Chiefs dumping safety Jarrad Page, as they have a log jam in the defensive backfield. How about Page being moved to the Jags? There’s a player on Jacksonville that also could find himself on trade block, that being RB Greg Jones.

Could the two be trading partners? Big Cat Country speculates about a possible move, though some feel that there’s no way the Chiefs would make such a trade:

Greg Jones is a tremendous fullback, when healthy. He is a devastating lead blocker, when healthy, and one of his biggest assets is his vision, given he was a big-time runningback at Florida State before he had one of his many knee injuries. Jones is also an asset in pass protection, sometimes being the only back in the backfield on third and long. He’s a pretty good receiver out of the backfield and can get yards after the catch, as he’s exceedingly difficult to bring down. Prior to the 2007 season Greg Jones looked primed to be a combo-back similar to Le’Ron McClain in Baltimore, but his knee was injured again in the pre-season.

While Greg Jones is still a very good fullback, when healthy, the Jaguars have pressing needs at the safety position. The Jaguars offense, namely the running game, has hummed along just as well with Greg Jones out of the lineup. As I mentioned previously, he’s an asset, but I think Montell Owens has developed enough as a player to the point that he nearly makes Greg Jones expendable. The Kansas City Chiefs seemingly want to upgrade their fullback position, as some fans were hoping that John Conner of the New York Jets would beat out former-Chief Tony Richardson and Richardson would be released to return to Kansas City.
