    I imagine if he absolutely tears it up in preseason and gains the trust in the coaches, he could start. But not likely, just some passing downs or case by injury.

    It is not necessarily true that Jones will not start (absent an injury). He is the first real OLB they have drafted who played the 3-4 in college. The reason that the others did not start as rookies is because they were converted linemen. The transition for Jones should be much easier, which gives him a decent shot to start.

    Of course, this all depends on how hard he works learning the playbook, how Worilds looks in camp, etc.

    Is he going to replace Harrison as Goodell's cash trough?

    Lol I see Shamarko eventually taking that role in a couple of years.

    Jason Worilds has been named the starter with Jones coming off the bench.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    And I think the only reason that is happening is because of Jones slight Chest bruise where he missed the last 7-10 days of getting prepared to start against Tennessee. But, Jarvis will play in at least 30 + snaps on Sunday, and I will bet by game 3, he WILL be the atarter for us.


    I also predict that by Baltimore game, Jarvis will have at least 5 to 7 sacks!!

    Jones has the Playbook down. Otherwise, he wouldn't have played, and started over Jason the games he has. Tomlin would have named Jason the starter a long time ago. He made his decision based on Jones not being able to fully practice the past 10 days. Trust me, Jones will see as many snaps Sunday as Worids does.
