Seems ex-Lion Kevin Jones is starting to draw a little interest, with both New England and Tennessee having him in for visits. (What is it with the Titans and running backs lately?) It also appears that Jones has an inflated sense of his worth to an NFL team, but this should correct itself after awhile.
Depending on how the Packers' medical staff tested him, it would seem to make sense to bring Jones in for a look. With a young, mostly untested backfield, and Ryan Grant still unsigned (though no one really thinks he won't sign before training camp...) having a veteran like Jones, who was stuck behind a horrific offensive line and saddled with a pass-mad offensive coordinator the last two years, could only help bolster what is a position with serious question marks all the way down the depth chart. (One could argue that adding Jones would only add another question mark, to which I could only say that you would be correct)
Now, I highly doubt Thompson would actually make this move. It's risky in a way that seems to make the GM break out in hives. But players with Jones' ability and experience are rarely available at this point in the offseason. I fail to see what the harm would be in the Packers kicking the tires and getting a look at Jones firsthand.
