Steelers' Jarvis Jones says wrist still isn't 100 percent

Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones is still feeling the effects of the dislocated wrist that cost him the bulk of his 2014 campaign. Jones, who saw limited action down the stretch last season, told the Tribune-Review that he's still dealing with some lingering issues from wrist surgery. "It was a serious injury and I am still rehabbing it and everything but I still have some strength...

Fact And Fiction: Jarvis Jones, Run Defense

Few players on the Pittsburgh Steelers current roster have been criticized as much as outside linebacker Jarvis Jones throughout the edge rusher’s first two seasons, but how much of that negative stigma is warranted? As the 17th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Jones was drafted largely because he was believed to be an […] Fact And Fiction: Jarvis Jones, Run Defense is a...

Sample Size Too Small To Draw Meaning From Jarvis Jones’ Early 2014 Performance

It’s quite true that Pittsburgh Steelers third-year outside linebacker Jarvis Jones had a very disappointing sophomore campaign, missing more than half of the season due to a wrist injury that landed him on the return-eligible injured reserve list during the third game. It’s also true that that injury alone cannot wholly account for the level […] Sample Size Too Small To Draw...

Jarvis Jones On Rookie Bud Dupree: ‘He Learns Fast’

The Pittsburgh Steelers are wrapping up their first week of OTA practices on Thursday and while first-round draft pick, outside linebacker Bud Dupree, is likely still a long way away from taking a meaningful snap in a regular season game, it does sound like his transition to the NFL level, and more importantly the Steelers […] Jarvis Jones On Rookie Bud Dupree: ‘He Learns Fast’...

Steelers not expected to make ‘too many changes’ on defense

The Pittsburgh Steelers will practice for the first time in more than four months today when the Steelers begin organized team activities (OTAs). OTAs, which are Phase 3 of the offseason program, are 10 days of practice where the team can do 7-on-7, 9-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills, but no live contact. For the Steelers defense, it will be the first opportunity for them to put in...

Ike Taylor Has High Expectations For Jarvis Jones In 2015

2014 certainly didn’t go as planned for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones as the former first-round draft pick out of Georgia missed nine games due to a broken wrist that he suffered midway through the third game of the season. Even though he failed to bounce back thoroughly from that injury last season, recently retired […] Ike Taylor Has High Expectations For Jarvis...

Pittsburgh Steelers: How will Bud Dupree fit?

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Bud Dupree with the 22nd pick overall in the 2015 draft. It is the third straight year that the Steelers drafted a linebacker with their first round pick (Jarvis Jones 2013, Ryan Shazier 2014). Dupree fills a hole that the Steelers needed to fill this offseason. Last year, the Steelers did not have an all-star caliber linebacking corp, like in the...

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. I thought in college he was a much better pass-rusher than run defender and was more of an opportunistic player than one who created plays for himself. 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...

"We didn't even interview Jarvis," says Pittsburgh Steelers GM

It's an inexact science regarding the NFL Draft and how teams end up drafting their players. In 2013, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected linebacker Jarvis Jones in the first round and running back Le'Veon Bell in the second. We didn't even interview Jarvis (Jones) down here (NFL Combine), said Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert. We didn't think we had a realistic ...
