Former Steelers OL Jarron Jones Suspended 10 Games by NFL after Pleading Guilty in Domestic Violence Case

Former Steelers offensive lineman Jarron Jones was suspended 10 games by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the league announced on Monday.

Jones was released by the Steelers in July while dealing with two sets of felony domestic violence charges. 

Jones, 27, was first charged back in October after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, strangling his girlfriend and hit her in the face and struck her with a gaming console.

The felony charges of aggravated assault, strangulation and terroristic threats were dropped in a preliminary hearing on June 29, after which, Jones was re-arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault, witness intimidation and two misdemeanors stemming from an incident that occurred on Sept. 19, 2020.

The second set of felony charges were later also dropped and on Oct. 6, Jones plead guilty to one count of simple assault, a misdemeanor that carried a sentence of two years of probation.

Jones has not signed with any other team since his release. The Notre Dame alum first signed with the Steelers in April 2020 and spent his rookie season on the team’s practice squad. He was released and replaced by veteran Chaz Green just before training camp. Jones is the older brother of Los Angeles Rams and former Steelers linebacker Jamir Jones.
