Default Steelers sign Adrian Jones, place Willie Colon on injured reserve

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed veteran offensive lineman Adrian Jones(notes) and placed offensive tackle Willie Colon(notes) on the reserve/injured list, the team announced.


Jones was signed to a one-year contract.


The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder is a former New York Jets fourth-round draft picki in the 2004 NFL draft.


The former University of Kansas player started 44 games for the Jets before being cut in 2007.


Jones started 10 games for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008 at guard.


He was with the Houston Texans last season before being released.


Colon tore his Achilles tendon last month and underwent season-ending surgery

Wouldn't put much stock in it. He's just a journeyman and got cut last year by another team. He may well be just a veteran body for camp.

I would think signing a tackle would have been the route to go but I am not coaching the offensive line.

Yeah, I'm guessing the plan is to slide Essex and Foster out and have them battle for the RT spot. I remember Jones from when he was at Kansas. I hoped the Steelers would take him with a mid round pick, but he definitely didn;t have the feet to play RT. Of course, I don't really think Essex and Foster have the feet to play RT. We have one true tackle on the roster (Hills is nothing)
