Breakout Season or Not; Jarvis Jones is a Valuable Piece of Steelers’ Future

One of the early storylines out of OTA’s is about Jarvis Jones and how he’ll respond on the field to the team not picking up his 5th year option. Plenty of fans have already firmly affixed the bust label to Jarvis Jones, which is fine, if that’s your opinion. Personally, I think the Steelers were 100% right not to keep Jarvis under contract in his 5th season given what that...

Jarvis Jones motivated by Steelers not picking up his option

Jarvis Jones says that he is motivated by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision not to pick up his contract option for 2017. Jones was a first-round pick by the Steelers in 2013 and is set to earn nearly $1.6 million this season.

Antonio Brown betters Combine time with 4.35 40-yard dash

Antonio Brown can fly. The Pittsburgh Steelers receiver hasn’t been slowed down by age, or even an appearance on Dancing With the Stars. If anything, those experiences have made Brown faster. Brown ran a 4.47 40-yard dash at the 2010 Scouting Combine. On Monday evening, Brown tweeted his most recent 40 time that not only beats that 4.47 mark, but blows it away. Ran a 4.35/40...
