Tampa Bay is officially out of the running for Detroit free agent running back Kevin Jones.
Jones will sign with either Pittsburgh or Chicago on Tuesday.
Previously, there were five teams including Tampa Bay were interested in Jones, but despited a published report last week stating Jones was going to visit Tampa Bay this week, Tony Fleming, his agent, previously said it was untrue.
It would have been hard for Jones to fit in at Tampa Bay because of its high number of running backs. The Bucs currently have Earnest Graham, Michael Bennett, Warrick Dunn, Kenneth Darby, rookie Cory Boyd, plus the possibility of Cadillac Williams’ return this season.
Jones is recovering from knee surgery he had five months ago and last month Miami, Green Bay, Pittsburgh and Detroit reportedly sent representatives to watch him workout in Saline, Mich. Tampa Bay was not one of the teams in attendance.
Last year, Jones missed the first two games as he recovered from a foot injury that also sidelined him for the last three games of 2006. He ran for at least 70 yards in five games, including a season-high 105 against Chicago, before hurting his knee Dec. 23 against the Chiefs. He finished with 153 carries for 581 yards and eight touchdowns in 13 games. A few months after the season, Detroit released him.
