Steelers Camp Preview: Jarvis Jones, Jason Worilds look to step up at LB

Few team positions carry the same resonance as the Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers. You can distill the identity of the team and the city into that one position. They’re hardworking, physical and on defense. Find me three better linebackers in the history of the NFL than Jack Ham, Jack Lambert and Andy Russell. Mostly Lambert. That guy would have looked just as at home in a Carnegie...

Pittsburgh Steelers mailbag: Jarvis Jones’s job and the team’s playoff expectations

Who wins the starting LB job? Jarvis Jones or Arthur Moats? - William from Wheeling I don’t think there was any question that Moats was brought in as an insurance policy in case Jones struggles again in this, his sophomore year.

Is it too early to call Pittsburgh Steelers sophomore Jarvis Jones a bust?

If I’m being honest, I’ve never been a big Jarvis Jones fan.

He is slightly over-aged for the NFL, (Will already turn 25 in October) and has a neck issue that forced him off USC’s team. But the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Jones...
