Well, this is odd -- we, along with everyone else, reported yesterday that Julius Jones got cut by the Seahawks. It made sense because he's too expensive and Justin Forsett and Leon Washington are both better.
Turns out, that wasn't exactly accurate; he actually restructured his contract in order to avoid getting released and is still a member of the Seattle team.
That's according to Gregg Rosenthal of Pro Football Talk who cites a league source that tells PFT that Jones was "never actually cut."
That means (I presume) that Pete Carroll chugged a Red Bull, called Jones into his office, told Jones how fantastic his offseason and preseason had been, informed Jones what an integral part of the offensive attack he'd be for Seattle and then gave him a hand pound and a pat on the back before adding the caveat that "only if you take less money."
Jones, understanding that he has a chance to actually get carries in Seattle, talked to his agent and figured out a way to stay on the roster while still getting paid a reasonable sum of money.
