  • The Steelers have a gem of a guy.I can’t wait until they put some weight on him.He is going to light of the NFL with his speed and vision.He is a standup of guy.He will be a positive to the league.Maybe the Dolphins should have picked him up lol!!!Jayson works hard and he is media savvy.He will not get in public and downgrade his team as some well known players do.He is the kind of man that deserves to make a roster,smart, athelitic ,hardworking and appreciate of his chances.He realizes respect is earned. Football to him is a love.He is a real man and thank you, thank you steelers for pick him up!!!

    He is a great player. give him some time to develope. after he adjusts to nfl, the first guy does note touch him. he has vision and the intangibles that you can’t teach. Parcells was high on him, but numbers cost him. Jayson played QB, reciever/slot back his senior year, and then back to QB his senior year. Give him a chance great player/character and will make it.

    Here he is folks the next human joystick. It may take some time but I feel Jayson can make it. I played with this guy in highschool he was a highlight film. The Steelers Have no idea what they really have. He could have played at any SEC school and probably been much like Percy Harvin. He wanted to play QB and went GSU and was a beast of a man at 5’7 and his football speed and vision is unreal. The Steelers have a potential KR/PR star and a potential great replacement for Antwan Randel-el.
