    He reminds me of the O'Donnell days....more worried about keeping his INT % at a low rather than making big plays.
    He proved he could play QB in the NFL but obviously he couldn't overcome the mental aspect to do it Full Time.
    I'd take the notoriously "cautious afraid to throw a pick" version of O'Donnell in the SB rather than the reckless gunslinger impostor who showed up that day.....we'd have one more ring.

    Pretty sure he came into the Cincinnati playoff game and immediately threw an INT.
    And that is awesome...interceptions are good.
    Isn't the topic of this thread......Landry Jones....."good pick"?

    Landry Jones: Cut loose by Oakland

    by RotoWire Staff May 22, 2019

    Jones was released by the Raiders on Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Jones was cut to make room for tight end Erik Swoope, who was signed by the team Tuesday. The 2013 fourth-round pick had a lengthy run as the backup quarterback in Pittsburgh, making five starts in five years before he was unseated by Joshua Dobbs and Mason Rudolph during the 2018 preseason. Derek Carr, Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman remain on the depth chart at quarterback for the Raiders.

    Same folks who traded Khalil Mack. Don't look for logic or assume these guys have any clue

    Maybe Jones had too much background info on Brown and was letting the team know what a douche he is

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    Veteran backup Jones first QB to sign with XFL

    Kevin Seifert

    Former NFL backup Landry Jones is the first quarterback to sign with the new XFL, the league announced Thursday.

    Jones, 30, has not yet been assigned to an XFL team. He will be part of an eight-man quarterback draft to take place this fall.

    The XFL, which is scheduled to debut next February, began sending draft pool invitations to players earlier this month. It plans to hold its primary draft in October, followed by a series of minicamps in December and a three-week training camp in January.

    Commissioner Oliver Luck has said the "vast majority" of players in the draft pool will have had some level of professional experience, either in the NFL, CFL or AAF.

    Jones started five games in five seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2013-17 and spent time last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He worked out with the Raiders during organized team activities in May, but was cut afterwards.

    Jones has a chance to be reunited with his college coach at Oklahoma, Bob Stoops, who is the coach/general manager of the XFL's Dallas franchise.

    Jones played in 19 games with five starts during his NFL career, completing 63.9 percent of his passes for 1,310 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.
