The Steelers Need Jarvis Jones To Start Wreaking Havoc

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted OLB Jarvis Jones in the first round of the 2013 to pair with LaMarr Woodley mostly because of one thing.

Steelers Primer – Week 3 – vs. Chicago Bears

Shamarko Thomas Can Bring Swagger Back to Pittsburgh Steelers Defense

Shamarko is already making his mark. Pittsburgh Steelers rookie safety Shamarko Thomas, drafted in the fourth round, told Tom Robinson of the Virginian-Pilot that he expects to be fined in the NFL because of the way he plays football.
