The Jets were given a chance to match the contract offer running back Thomas Jones received from the Chiefs, according to Pro Football Talk. "Per a league source, the Jets had a chance to match the two-year, $5 million contract that the Chiefs paid to running back Thomas Jones, but opted not to do so," the report said. New York released Jones last week after failing to pay him a $3 million roster bonus and possible $2.8 million salary for 2010.
