It appears former Steelers quarterback Landry Jones will join Antonio Brown in sporting silver and black. Jones has agreed to a deal to join the Raiders, per Raiders.com.
Jones, best known to Steelers fans as the failed heir to Ben Roethlisberger’s throne, spent five seasons in Pittsburgh after being the team’s fourth round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Despite setting school records at Oklahoma, Jones was never able to find success in Pittsburgh, ultimately being beat out of roster spot by Josh Dobbs in the final preseason game of the 2018 season.
Following the cut, Jones spent some time in Jacksonville before being released just a few weeks later.
In 18 appearances, Jones completed 63.9% of his passes with 8 TD’s to 7 turnovers during his time in Pittsburgh.
With rumors of Derek Carr being shopped in Oakland, Jones may find himself in a position to regain back-up status in the league.
