Steelers All 91: OLB J.T. Jones



All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.

40 • J.T. Jones, first-year linebacker

Last year: Spent the spring with the Atlanta Legends of the AAF after being cut by the Atlanta Falcons at the end of training camp. Played defensive end for the Legends.

Stats: Made 16 tackles, three for a loss, and four sacks in eight games in the AAF. Also forced a fumble.

Accolades, Highlights:

Camp outlook: Jones has filled in behind T.J. Watt and Anthony Chickillo at left outside linebacker as both battled minor ailments and had a decent amount of success.

Projected role: It’s hard to see the Steelers keeping more than four outside linebackers, but Jones might be the fifth if they decide to.
