Arizona Cardinals: Get to know the latest free agent signings
Jones was one of 2 linebackers the Cardinals have signed since free agency began in March
Jarvis Jones from the Pittsburgh Steelers is full of potential. He was a standout star all american at the University Of Georgia. Unfortunately his NFL career has yet to live up to those expectations.
The good thing is, is he is on a team that is known for bringing out the best in their players and reviving careers. Its also a plus that Jones is only 27 years old, and if he proves it on this 1 year deal that he can play, he could be coming back next season as well.
Jones was a first round pick for the Steelers at the 17th overall pick. He is shown flashes of his potential, especially this past season with 29 total tackles, a sack, an interception and 2 forced fumbles.
In his 5 year career he has totaled 6 sacks. I think Jones has a chance to flourish his talent in Arizona, and will find himself on the field a lot.
Jones coming to Arizona is something to look forward to because its a 50/50 chance on having another play making linebacker. You don’t really know what impact he will make, or how he will play, but it’s definitely exciting to see what he will be able to do.
