Cardinals released OLB Jarvis Jones with an injury settlement.
The first-round disappointment couldn't revive his career in Cardinals camp. An outside 'backer who can't get after the passer and turns 28 in October, Jones is going to have trouble drumming up interest on the open market. The Cardinals also waived or released WR Carlton Agudosi, DT Peli Anau, LB Alex Bazzie, LB Cap Capi, CB Jarrell Carter, TE Gerald Christian, CB Gump Hayes, WR Krishawn Hogan, OG Dorian Johnson, OG Kaleb Johnson, LB Tre’Von Johnson, LB Ryan Langford, P Richie Leone, CB Ryan Lewis, OT Jonathan McLaughlin, S Harlan Miller, DT David Moala, C Daniel Munyer, OT Givens Price, WR Jeremy Ross, TE Ricky Seals-Jones, CB Sojourn Shelton, DT Ed Stinson, RB James Summers, DT Pasoni Tasini, OG Cole Toner, TE Hakeem Valles and LB Terence Waugh.

Cardinals signed OLB Jarvis Jones, formerly of the Steelers, to a one-year contract.

Jones was supposed to visit the Rams next, but the Cardinals wouldn't let him leave without a deal. Jones has been a disappointment as the No. 17 overall pick of the 2013 draft, but is coming off his best season. He'll be playing in a 3-4 defense similar to Pittsburgh's. Jones provides zero pass-rushing upside, but is decent enough at setting the edge.

Free agent OLB Jarvis Jones will meet with the Cardinals on Monday.

It is the first known interest for Jones, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Steelers are still interested in bringing him back. A first-round disappointment, Jones recorded just six sacks in four seasons with Pittsburgh. He is scheduled to visit the Rams next.

The Steelers are not expected to re-sign free agent OLB Jarvis Jones.

A prolific college pass rusher who is simply not athletic enough to provide the same effect in the big leagues, Jones has managed six sacks across 50 NFL games. He has evolved into a solid run defender, but lacks the ability to disrupt passing games. 3-4 defenses in need of an edge setter may give Jones free agent consideration, but he won't break the bank. Jones is 27 years old.

Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones suffered a left ankle injury in Week 4 against the Chiefs.

It's another blow to a Steelers defense that's already without ILB Ryan Shazier. There should be an update on Jones early next week.

Steelers OLBs coach Joey Porter said he wants to use less of a rotation this season.

Sophomore Bud Dupree spent all of his rookie season rotating with Arthur Moats while Jarvis Jones played fewer snaps than James Harrison despite starting 15 games. Even with Moats and Harrison back, the Steelers want Dupree and Jones to play more snaps. "I don’t think the rotation will be what it was," Porter said. "If (Jones and Dupree) are going to play like we think they can, I’m going to play the hot hand." The Steelers declined Jones' fifth-year option in May, making this a contract year for the 2013 first-rounder.
Mon, Aug 1, 2016 11:48:00 AM

The Steelers declined OLB Jarvis Jones' 2017 fifth-year option.

It would have paid Jones an $8.4 million salary in 2017. It likely wasn't an easy decision for the Steelers, but Jones has failed to meet expectations as the 17th overall pick in the 2013 draft. He has just five career sacks.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review speculates the Steelers' decision whether or not to pick up OLB Jarvis Jones' fifth-year option could hinge on the draft.

"I think it is safe to say once we get through the draft it will affect how we do business with our veteran players," said GM Kevin Colbert. The No. 17 overall pick in 2013, Jones has failed to live up to expectations, especially as a pass rusher. He has just five sacks through three seasons, and Colbert was honest about the team's disappointment with his production earlier this offseason. The option would cost the Steelers $8.3 million in 2017. The deadline for a decision is May 2.
Tue, Apr 26, 2016 11:27:00 AM

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert admits the team has been disappointed with OLB Jarvis Jones' sack production.

"Jarvis was better to a certain extent," Colbert said of Jones' 2015. "You'd still like to see more sack production." Jones started 15 games last season, playing 532 snaps, but still managed only two sacks. The No. 17 overall pick of the 2013 draft has five through 36 NFL games. Going into the final year of his rookie deal, it's no better than 50-50 that the Steelers pick up Jones' fifth-year team option.
Tue, Feb 16, 2016 03:35:00 PM

Steelers third-year OLB Jarvis Jones admits he's still trying to regain the mobility in his previously-injured wrist.

Jones hurt his wrist Week 3 last season and missed 10 games on I.R./designated for return. "Trying to get my mobility in it," Jones said. "They say I won’t get it all back but I’m trying to make the most of it." Jones received poor marks across the board from Pro Football Focus last season, but is expected to open the season as the starter, ahead of James Harrison and opposite Arthur Moats.

Fri, Aug 21, 2015 10:51:00 AM

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert views the team's starting right outside linebacker position as an "open competition" between Jarvis Jones and James Harrison.

It's telling that Jones has to hold off a 37-year-old just to keep his job. The 17th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Jones has been exposed as a sub-NFL-caliber athlete through two seasons while also battling myriad injuries. He has three sacks in 21 games and looks every bit a draft bust. PFF gave Jones a positive pass-rush grade in just one of his seven 2014 appearances.
Sun, Mar 22, 2015 09:43:00 PM

Steelers activated OLB Jarvis Jones (wrist) from injured reserve/designated for return.

Jones resumed practicing last week and will return Sunday against the Bengals. He should start opposite Jason Worilds, with James Harrison moving into a situational role when healthy. The Steelers are also expected to get ILB Ryan Shazier (knee) back this week.
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 04:01:00 PM

Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones (wrist surgery) is practicing Monday.

Jones remains on injured reserve with a designation for return. Assuming all goes smoothly, he'll likely be activated sometime in the next two weeks. This Steelers defense desperately needs Jones, Troy Polamalu, Ryan Shazier and even Ike Taylor back as soon as possible.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 11:44:00 AM

Steelers placed OLB Jarvis Jones (wrist surgery) on injured reserve-designated for return.

Jones must miss at least eight weeks on the list, robbing Pittsburgh of its 2013 first-round pick until no sooner than Week 12. Ineffective when healthy, Jones has three sacks through 803 career snaps. The red flags were there for the Steelers in Jones' Combine numbers. He's not an explosive pass rusher, and now he's on the shelf. Pittsburgh's defense opened the season playing poorly. It was ransacked by serious injuries in Sunday night's win over Carolina.
