The 33-year-old Jones appeared in all 16 games for Houston in 2013. He played 332 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus records.
An 10th-year pro from Florida State, Jones (6-1, 251) has primarily been a blocker throughout his career, with the bulk of his 272 carries coming early in his career with Jacksonville.
The Saints’ addition of Jones comes on the heels of blocking back Erik Lorig missing a few days of practice. According to Nick Underhill of the Baton Rouge Advocate, Lorig is dealing with a leg ailment.
