RB Julius Jones headed to Big Easy

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that former Seattle Seahawks running back Julius Jones has signed with the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints needed running back depth with Reggie Bush out and Pierre Thomas dinged up. And Jones should fit in nicely with the Saints power running style up front.

Jones was released by Seattle last week to make room for running back Marshawn Lynch.

Seattle travels to New Orleans to face the Saints later this season on Nov. 21.
