As we’ve done in previous offseasons, we’re taking a look at those Pittsburgh Steelers under futures contracts for the 2019 offseason. We’ll focus this on the players who weren’t on the team’s practice squad last year, the mostly unknown players that fans don’t know much about.
#40 JT Jones/OLB Miami (OH) – 6’1/1 249
Jones is another of the players the Steelers went fishing for when the AAF folded eight weeks into its inaugural year. The benefit is a clearer evaluation of talent, more reps against in theory, better competition, with the confidence those guys were in “football” shape and not on their couch binging Game of Thrones.
