    Steelers sign outside linebacker Jamir Jones

    The Steelers signed outside linebacker Jamir Jones to a contract Wednesday afternoon.

    Jones, the brother of Steelers practice squad offensive lineman Jarron Jones, was signed by the Texans last offseason after being undrafted out of Notre Dame. He was released in July.

    Jones earned a starting job in his final season at Notre Dame and recorded 4 ˝ sacks after playing mostly in a reserve role in his first few seasons with the Fighting Irish.

    Jones worked out at Notre Dame’s pro day last month, when Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was on campus to watch this year’s draft prospects. The Steelers have signed four players from the 2020 draft class this offseason that went through pro day workouts this year after they failed to latch onto teams last year during the pandemic.

    The Steelers are searching for depth at outside linebacker behind starters T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith. Last month, they signed Cassius Marsh, who was signed off the Colts practice squad in the middle of last season. They’re also expected to draft an outside linebacker later this month.

    Another FA steal. Real steeler type guy.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    hahahahaha. Camp fodder.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 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.

    Dolphin fans in the 90’s who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70’s...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches
