PHILADELPHIA (ESPN.com) - Former Dallas Cowboys running back Felix Jones signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, the team announced.
The 2008 first-round draft choice out of Arkansas spent the first five years of his career with the Cowboys. The free agent had visited with the Eagles and first-year coach Chip Kelly last week before working out for the New England Patriots.
The 26-year-old Jones started seven games last season while playing in all 16, finishing with 402 yards on 111 carries for a 3.6 average. He had three rushing touchdowns with 25 receptions for 262 yards and two TDs through the air.
