RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Jones has battled numerous injuries in his first two seasons, playing in just 21 games. A bit of a disappointment thus far, he will compete with James Harrison for the starting right outside linebacker position this season.
Jones turned in a solid rookie season, earning a starting position opposite Jason Worilds. Along with Lawrence Timmons and rookie Ryan Shazier, the Steelers' linebacking corps has the potential to be among the league's best.
The Steelers will look for Jones to start sooner rather than later. It's hard to envision Jason Worilds holding off Jones for more than a week or two into the regular season. Like most 3-4 outside linebackers, Jones' IDP upside might be limited by the position he plays, because it rarely affords itself to many tackle opportunities.
