Free agent DE Howard Jones will visit the Jets on Friday.
Jones was an exclusive rights free agent with the Bucs, but wasn't tendered. Jones tallied five sacks in 2015, but was used sparingly last season before tearing his ACL in Week 9. He would be up against it to crack the 53-man roster in New York. Tue, Mar 14, 2017 04:01:00 PM

The Buccaneers will not tender an offer to exclusive rights free agent DE Howard Jones, making him a free agent.

He's recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 9. Jones had some success in 2015, recording five sacks in 12 games for the Bucs. Undersized at 6'4/238 and coming off a major injury, the 27-year-old shouldn't expect a robust market.

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.

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.
