Sources: Bears to swap Jones for Jets draft pick
According to league sources, the Bears have agreed to trade RB Thomas Jones and a 2007 second-round pick (No. 63 overall) to the Jets for a 2007 second-round pick — No. 37 overall — which was acquired previously in a trade from Washington, ESPN.com’s Michael Smith reported.
The Jets still have two picks in the second round — No. 59 and now No. 63.
The Jets and Jones’ representative, Drew Rosenhaus, are believed to be working on a new contract with Jones, whose unhappiness with his Bears contract led to him skipping offseason workouts this past season.
The Bears now have the No. 31st (first round) and 37th overall picks.
