    Do the Steelers Want Kevin Jones?

    Do the Steelers Want Kevin Jones?

    Posted Jun 29th 2008 8:44PM by JJ Cooper
    Filed under: Lions, Steelers, AFC North, Detroit, Pittsburgh




    A day after they cut Najeh Davenport because of the team's glut of running backs, the Steelers had a scout at ex-Lions' running back Kevin Jones' workout.

    There's something said for being thorough, as the Steelers now have another scouting report on Jones to stick into his file. But beyond that, I can't think of any logical explanation for why the Steelers would bother to show up, when 28 other teams didn't.

    Jones would be no better than the team's No. 3 running back (behind Willie Parker and Rashard Mendenhall) if he signed, and because Mewelde Moore will return punts, Jones would likely not even dress on gamedays. Even if he's struggling to find a job, some team should be able to do better than that.

    There are instances where the Steelers have taken unwanted guys and turned them into something--Charlie Batch is a great example. But in Jones' case, it's hard to think of any reason the Steelers would be interested. Hopefully Steelers scouts are even more thorough when it comes to scouting offensive linemen.

    In a word...

    nope.

    in a few more words, considering Jones in an already crowded backfield where they just released a veteran so they would have a roster spot for Russel tells me it's just doing their homework in case the need would arise to pick him up some time in the future.

    I think they were just checking to make sure they weren't missing anything... besides the last thing they need right now is another RB unless they want to put someone on the PS

    Can't see the Steelers making a honest attempt after him. They just cleaned up the backfield a little bit.

    That would be a negative Captain. He can't play Full Back.

    Our back field will be pretty damn good as it is without him. But I did read, he ran a 4.3-40 on wet grass.....

    It was a shuttle. Not a 40.
