Steelers LB Jarvis Jones Needs A “Stronger” Offseason

When the Pittsburgh Steelers made Jarvis Jones the 17th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, expectations were sky high. Much like guard David DeCastro in the 2012 NFL Draft, Jones wasn’t expected to be available when the Steelers were on the clock. With the retirement of stalwart James Harrison and…

Steelers Now Have The Arsenal To Rotate Edge Rushers

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison missed two games at the start of December while working through a knee injury. At the same time, second-year linebacker Jarvis Jones returned from the short-term injured reserve list, and spelled starter Arthur Moats in the nickel defense.
