Jets to release RB Thomas Jones

The New York Jets have informed running back Thomas Jones that they will release him Friday, when the new NFL year begins, general manager Mike Tannenbaum announced in a statement.

"Thomas joined us three years ago and has been a productive, passionate leader both on and off the field who has served as a positive influence for our younger players," Tannenbaum said Monday.

Jones rushed for 1,402 yards and 14 touchdowns last season as the Jets made the playoffs as a wild-card team. However, the team then leaned heavily on rookie Shonn Greene, who gained 304 rushing yards in three playoff games.
