    Steelers sign Jones, put Colon on IR

    The Steelers added depth to their offensive line today when they signed six-year veteran Adrian Jones. Financial terms of the one-year contract were not disclosed.

    Jones (6-4, 330) was originally drafted by the New York Jets in the fourth round (132nd overall) in the 2004 NFL Draft out of Kansas. Jones started 44 games for the Jets from 2004-07 before being waived late in the 2007 season. He was then signed by the Kansas City Chiefs and started 10 games in 2008 at guard. Jones then spent time last year in the Houston Texans on the practice squad before being released.

    To make room for Jones on the roster, the Steelers placed veteran offensive tackle Willie Colon on their Reserve/Injured List. Colon suffered an Achilles injury last month and had season-ending surgery.

    I don't know much about this guy but considering he spent last year on a PS before getting waived doesn't instill much confidence if you ask me.I haven't checked his numbers yet but I will later on. Perhaps it was just a numbers game there in Houston but in any event, we continue this round robin, musical 2nd tier lineman game all over again...

    Seriously, this is the best we can do? There are perfectly good offensive lineman out there that can help this team. We're in a year with no salary cap for crap sakes and this is the best they can do? I know they want to play within their normal cap structure even now but my God how in the world can you justify this pickup? It's another sub par player trying to fit into a starting unit that hasn't been able to get out of it's own way for years now and somehow managed to win a super bowl inspite of themselves.
