I know what I'll get out of Thomas Jones. You have no idea what a player who missed an entire year due to injury is going to give you.

Nice try though.

Positional value doesn't mean you can just plug an old, injured player in there and expect to get production that he gave to the Chargers about 3 years ago.
2008 was one of his best seasons in the NFL, any Charger fan will tell you that. Look at Pat Williams, he is almost 40 years old and he is still a dominant force. Those big guys can play at a high level for a long time. They rely on brute strength more than athleticism.

I guess you think Pittsburgh resigning the soon to be 33 year old Casey Hampton was a bad move. Actually Jamal Williams contract is virtually the same as Hampton's.

That injury happened early in the year and he has had plenty of time to recover. He passed a physical, and obviously Denver wouldn't have signed him if he was in bad shape health-wise.
