He wants to keep Landry Jones in the quarterback position


About a month ago, General Manager Kevin Colbert said he wanted to keep in the mix at quarterback. The team did just that when they signed him to a two-year contract.

“You never know what’s going to happen during the week and what’s going to go on, so I am going to prepare like I have been in the past and we’ll see what happens,” said Jones.

Last year Jones, who is in his fourth season, saw his first action filling in when a combination of injuries to Roethlisberger and Michael Vick plagued the team. He made his debut against Arizona, coming in during the game when Vick went down, and completed eight of 12 passes for 168 yards with two touchdowns. Jones played in seven games last season, starting two, and finished the year with 32 completions for 513 yards and three touchdowns.

He won’t have the all of the Steelers’ weapons at his disposal, but Jones maintains he’ll still have plenty with which to work.

Steelers’ players have confidence that Landry Jones will step to the plate, though, and Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick knows that Jones’ experience in the system, if not on the field, will benefit him.

“Very experienced player in the system, good arm, accurate, has good zip on the ball,” said Belichick. “Looks like he understands the offense well. He spreads the ball around. He is a good player that has a lot of good skill players with him that I am sure he can get them the ball and they can do a lot of damage.

Those were words from linebacker Anthony at the end of the 2016 season, coming off his rookie year when he had an eye-opening understanding of the type of condition an NFL player needs to be in.

The new look has nothing to do with getting ready for the  steelers jerseys cheap warm summer weather, or just wanting a change of pace.

So Chickillo, who mind you wasn’t in bad condition to begin with as a rookie, worked all offseason just to make sure he was even better prepared for year two.

Since college Chickillo said he has dropped 40 pounds, yes 40 pounds, to where he is right around 250 right now. And he loves the way he feels.

The Steelers have signed their fourth-round selection, cornerback Doran Grant, and their second of two sixth-round selections, linebacker , from the 2015 NFL Draft. Financial terms of the four-year deals were not disclosed.

Grant (5-10, 200), who was the 121st overall pick, played collegiately at Ohio State. He started 30-of-54 games played and totaled 146 tackles, nine interceptions, 20 pass breakups, one sack and four TFLs. In 2014, Grant was named first-team All-Big Ten and started all 15 games for the National Champion Buckeyes.

Linebacker Anthony Chickillo definitely considers himself a student of the game. Entering his second season, he is open to any avenue where he can learn something new, pick up tips, and continue to grow as a player.

Davis said he spent every minute he could this offseason looking at the playbook, preparing, and getting himself ready for the long haul.

“There wasn’t a day I wasn’t thinking about the plays,” said Davis. “Just learning everything. Picking up different positions. I want to learn the mental game, the most positions possible to give me a better opportunity on the field. I think I have done a good job of that. Hopefully I can showcase that the rest of camp.”
