Former Redskins and Colts running back Matt Jones is heading to Philadelphia, the team announced Wednesday.
Jones signed a two-year contract, and according to NFL Network, he won a three-back workout Tuesday that included Terrance West, while visiting the team.
The Steelers are coming off four consecutive playoff berths and Mike Webster”>http://www.officialsteelerslockerroom.com/elite-mike-webster-jersey”>Mike Webster Jersey four consecutive playoff disappointments. Since a prolific 2013 season, Roethlisberger has been inconsistent and inefficient. Although he has put up a few monster games, some low points 鈥?like poor road play and last year’s regular-season game against the Jaguars 鈥?have damaged either his team’s postseason standing or its ultimate fate.
With Roethlisberger’s play leveling off late in his career, and given his own hints at retirement, the Steelers can’t be blamed for accelerating their plans of lining up a replacement.
Part of Roethlisberger’s frustration over the pick is the fact that the Steelers used a fourth-rounder on a QB last year, too, in Joshua Dobbs. When Roethlisberger says the team should have thought more about sitting on their depth chart of Dobbs and backup Landry Jones, he means he doesn’t want to worry about an actual potential heir apparent such as Rudolph.
Shazier will not count against the 90-man offseason roster but is still expected to be involved with the team with the hope of eventually making a comeback from his injury.

Authentic Mens Hines Ward Jersey Shazier, 25, is still rehabbing from a serious back injury suffered in a Dec. 4 game against the Bengals that required spinal stabilization surgery and left him in a wheelchair. Still, he’s been seen doing pull-ups at the gym and hyping the crowd at PPG Paints Arena during Penguins games.
He most recently made a miraculous walk across the stage to the podium at the NFL Draft last week to announce the team’s first-round pick, making for one of the most memorable moments in draft history.
You can look at the league now and the value people are putting on the interior of the offensive line. They’re getting contracts upward of $12 million, $13 million, which was unheard of three-to-four years ago. They’re getting paid tackle money. And there’s such a scarcity up front. I think you saw in the draft when two centers went in the first round and (other) guards came flying off the board early in the second. Offensive linemen are hard to find. You better grab them when you have a chance.
