“We’re proud to have him,” Jones said at the annual league meeting. “He’ll be a good complement to McFadden and be a good complement to Dunbar. We like him. Between all of them, they’ll get some real work. Darren will probably get the majority of the work in terms of between the three of them. But they’ll all get work. He’s a seasoned back that we know knows what to do.”
