Felix Jones has “gut feeling” he’ll play in 2014

Running back Felix Jones didn’t play a big role for the Steelers last year, running for 184 yards on 48 carries, and that seemed to confirm that the former first-round pick’s once-bright career prospect were getting dimmer and dimmer with every passing day.

The crickets that have accompanied his arrival to the free agent market this year aren’t doing much to change the outlook. Jones isn’t ready to start looking for another line of work, though. He’s working out and believes that he still has “some gas in my motor” that he believes he’ll be putting to use for a team in the near future.

“I know something is going to happen, I have a gut feeling,” Jones said, via the Tulsa World. “I just have to stay prepared for it.”

It seems clear at this point in the offseason that no team has found a burning need to add Jones to their roster, which may mean that he’ll be waiting for injury or other catastrophe to strike in order to get another chance at making a roster.
