Steelers claim Jacoby Jones; Release Dri Archer

Here are some photos of the newest Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacoby Jones.

The Steelers have claimed Jacoby Jones off waivers from the San Diego Chargers, it was announced today.

In his ninth season in the NFL, Jones has amassed 10,184 all-purpose yards (4,720 kickoff return, 2,669 punt return, 2,733 receiving and 62 rushing) and 23 touchdowns (14 receiving, five kickoff and four punt return) in 124 regular-season games with 33 starts.

Jones originally entered the NFL as a third-round (73rd overall) draft choice of the Houston Texans in 2007, and spent his first five (2007-11) years in the NFL with Houston before three years with the Baltimore Ravens (2011-14) and the first eight weeks of the 2015 season with San Diego.

To make room for Jones, the Steelers have released second-year wide receiver/running back Dri Archer.
