T.J. Jones

Here is someone Bears fans may be familiar with. T.J. Jones has spent his entire four-year career with the Lions, playing primarily a backup role. If Bears fans aren’t familiar with him because he’s been a Lion, then surely they would remember his days at Notre Dame.

Jones came to the Lions as a 6th round pick back in 2015. The Irish product has hauled in 64 passes for 814 yards and four touchdowns. The 26-year-old has filled in for guys like Golden Tate and Marvin Jones over the last few seasons, but now that the Lions have Kenny Golladay, his services aren’t needed as frequently.

Jones would absolutely be a solid addition to the Bears, especially having experience playing for a division rival. Anytime you can add a quality player from a team you play twice every season, that’s a good move.

Speaking of an offense that loves to play with speed, Jones definitely comes with plenty of that. His 40-yard dash time at the combine was an impressive 4.48 — Nagy can work with that.

Additionally, just in case the Bears want to experiment with a new kickoff return specialist, Jones has returned a few in his career. He has also taken some punt return duty in the past, as well.
