Free agent LB Jarvis Jones signs with Cardinals
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Free agent linebacker Jarvis Jones signed Tuesday with the Arizona Cardinals.
A first-round draft choice in 2013 out of Georgia, Jones spent his first four years in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but never made a big impact. He played in 50 games with 35 starts and had 125 tackles, six sacks, two interceptions, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
Steelers sign LB Harrison to 2-year deal
PITTSBURGH (AP) — James Harrison is returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The five-time Pro Bowl linebacker has signed a two-year contract with the team that will keep Harrison in black and gold past his 40th birthday.
Harrison led the Steelers with five sacks in 2016. He became the franchise's all-time sack leader last season when he broke Jason Gildon's club record. Harrison now has 79 1-2 sacks in 13 years with the team.
