Buccaneers signed DE Howard Jones from the practice squad.
Jones joined Tampa's practice squad a few weeks ago after getting cut by the Steelers. Jones lacks the size (6'3/235) to contribute on early downs at defensive end, so he'll likely be looked at as a potential sub-rusher. Tue, Oct 6, 2015 04:01:00 PM

Steelers signed Shepherd OLB Howard Jones.

Jones (6-foot-2 1/4, 235) set a school record with 35 sacks for the D-2 Shepherd Rams, making 46 starts. A "wow" athlete, Jones ran 4.6-flat at the Combine with a 40 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. He could afford to get stronger and fill out his frame, but has impressive 34 1/8-inch arms to separate from would-be blockers. Jones is short on technique but long on upside, and his special teams experience gives him a chance to stay active on game days as a rookie. Jones is an intriguing project for Steelers DC Dick LeBeau.
