Bob Leverone, File/Associated Press – FILE – In this Aug. 29, 2013 file photo, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Felix Jones (23) watches on the sideline during the first half of an NFL football game against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, N.C. Jones’ crash course in the playbook earned him a spot on the Steelers 53-man roster. Now the former first round pick is hoping he sticks in a crowded backfield picture.
By Associated Press,
The former No. 1 draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys made Pittsburgh’s 53-man roster despite being acquired from Philadelphia midway through training camp.
The 26-year-old Jones struggled living up to his draft status with the Cowboys. Injuries and inconsistency never allowed him to take a firm grasp of the starting spot and he couldn’t get on the field in Philadelphia as the Eagles try to rebuild under Chip Kelly.
