Jones already has met with the Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals.

The speedy Jones has generated a lot of attention in the past few weeks and helped himself at his pro day last week in Northern California after he ran 40-yard dash times in the 4.3- to 4.35-second range, according to a source who attended.

Twenty-seven NFL teams watched Jones, who couldn't participate in any postseason bowl games or the NFL Scouting Combine because of a broken foot sustained during the season.

"I like to think that I'm a first-round back," Jones said at his workout, according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. "I feel like if I was in a bigger program, I could be that. I wanted to come out here and put up the numbers like a first-round back and compete like them. If a team feels the same way, the sky's the limit."
