Landry Jones: Heading to XFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is leaving the NFL and will join the XFL, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Jones becomes the first player to officially join the XFL, which will kick off its relaunch in February 2020. The 2013 fourth-round pick was a free agent and was likely looking at nothing more than a backup role at best had he landed on an NFL roster.

Landry Jones: Cut loose by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was released by the Raiders on Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Jones was cut to make room for tight end Erik Swoope, who was signed by the team Tuesday. The 2013 fourth-round pick had a lengthy run as the backup quarterback in Pittsburgh, making five starts in five years before he was unseated by Joshua Dobbs and Mason Rudolph during the 2018 preseason. Derek Carr, Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman remain on the depth chart at quarterback for the Raiders.

Raiders' Landry Jones: Joining Gruden in Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is signing with the Raiders, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The 2013 fourth-round pick had a lengthy run as the backup quarterback in Pittsburgh, making five starts in five years before he was unseated by Joshua Dobbs and Mason Rudolph during the 2018 preseason. Jones spent a couple weeks with the Jaguars in November and now will head to Oakland to compete against Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman for the backup job behind Derek Carr.

Landry Jones: Let go by Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was waived by the Jaguars on Monday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Jones was cut by Jacksonville to make room for Corey Robinson on the 53-man roster. The 2013 fourth-round pick spent less than three weeks with the Jaguars and was unable to usurp Cody Kessler as the primary backup to Blake Bortles during that time. Jones is now a free agent and will look to secure a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Jaguars' Landry Jones: Set to sign with Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is expected to sign with the Jaguars this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

A 2013 fourth-round pick with five career NFL starts to his name, Jones has worked out for a number of teams since being cut by the Steelers at the conclusion of the preseason. It appears he'll now find a new home in Jacksonville, but his stay on the 53-man roster may be an abbreviated one. According to Schefter, the Jaguars are bringing Jones aboard merely as an insurance option with starter Blake Bortles nursing an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. The issue isn't expected to prevent Bortles from being available for the first game out of the Jaguars' bye week Nov. 11 against the Colts, and if that ends up being the case, Jones could be released without ever suiting up for his new team. Cody Kessler is entrenched as the No. 2 option on the depth chart, so Jones would merely serve in a backup capacity if Bortles misses the Week 10 matchup.

Landry Jones: Will likely land job soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has been working out for multiple teams and is expected to sign with one soon, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jones has worked out for the Bills, Cowboys, Lions and Jaguars, among others. Wherever the 29-year-old quarterback lands, he'll be used in a backup role. Jones played in three games for the Steelers last year, completing 23 of 28 passes (82 percent) for 239 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Landry Jones: Works out for Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is working out for the Cowboys on Monday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Jones was cut by the Steelers prior to the start of the 2018 season after three years with the team. Jones appeared in 19 games for Pittsburgh, making five starts, and posted eight touchdowns and seven interceptions in that time. Should he end up signing with the Cowboys, he'd likely be viewed as an upgrade over Cooper Rush as the team's backup quarterback.

Landry Jones: Released by Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was released by the Steelers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jones was expected to stick around for another year even after the Steelers drafted Mason Rudolph, but a huge preseason from 2017 fourth-round pick Josh Dobbs led to a new plan. Jones should draw some interest around the league as a modest upgrade for some of the uglier backup QB situations.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Rough outing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones completed six of nine passes for 44 yards and an interception during Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

The interception came just three plays after first-round draft pick Terrell Edmunds intercepted Marcus Mariota and returned it to the Tennessee 24-yard line. Jones also fumbled deep in Pittsburgh territory, but avoided further damage with his own recovery. This effort did little to improve Jones' chances of winning the backup quarterback job with just one preseason game remaining.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Continues fighting for a roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones looked solid during a two-minute drill Sunday, completing four of five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown in less than a minute, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic PGH reports.

This is positive news for Jones, who has had limited opportunities to impress Coach Mike Tomlin, although he is a perfect 4-for-4 for 83 yards and a touchdown in limited action this preseason. After sitting out last Thursday against Green Bay, Jones should see action in the final two games against Tennessee and Carolina before any roster decisions are made.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Expected to start in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is expected to be the starting quarterback for Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

While Jones will be getting the start in the absence of Ben Roethlisberger (rest), the Steelers will likely want to see more out of fellow backups Josh Dobbs and rookie Mason Rudolph. With Rudolph seen as a legitimate candidate to serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Big Ben, Jones will need to have a fairly impressive season to warrant a spot on Pittsburgh's final roster.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Not assured of roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones likely will have to battle 2017 fourth-round pick Joshua Dobbs for a roster spot, ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler reports.

Pittsburgh's decision to draft Mason Rudolph in the third round hints at disappointment with Dobbs as a developmental project more so than any issue with Jones, who has served as Ben Roethlisberger's top backup since midway through the 2015 season. However, the Steelers could clear up cap space by keeping Dobbs instead of Jones as their No. 3 quarterback, if they deem Rudolph ready to handle the No. 2 role. The team can save $1.9 million by releasing Jones, compared to only $275,438 for Dobbs, per OverTheCap. Jones may need to beat out Rudolph in order to stick on the roster ahead of Dobbs.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Throws touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones completed 23 of 27 passes for 239 yards, with a touchdown, an interception and a fumble, and ran three times for minus six yards in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Browns. He had attempted just one other pass this season, which was incomplete, and ran a total of eight times for minus two yards in three games.

Jones got the start against Cleveland, as Pittsburgh basically conceded home-field advantage to New England. His performance as Ben Roethlisberger's backup over the past five seasons has been lackluster, completing 108 of 169 passes for 1,310 yards, with eight touchdowns, seven interceptions and two fumbles in 18 games, including five starts. He'll likely face competition from Joshua Dobbs for the backup job behind Roethlisberger next season.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Officially in as starter for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (coach's decision) will serve as the Steelers' starting quarterback Sunday against the Browns.

With the heavily favored Patriots expected to clinch the No. 1 seed with a victory over the Jets in Week 17, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin will use the regular-season finale to rest several key regulars. That includes Ben Roethlisberger, who will be replaced by Jones in what marks the former Oklahoma standout's fifth career NFL start. With a 59.9 percent completion rate and 7:6 TD:INT ratio for his career, Jones doesn't profile as a particularly appealing fantasy option, especially with the team's top two pass catchers, wideout Antonio Brown (lower leg) and running back Le'Veon Bell (coach's decision), both inactive.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Could get starting nod in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steelers offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert said Thursday that Jones will serve as the Steelers' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Browns, Tim Benz of TribLive.com reports. "Ben [Roethlisberger isn't] there [Sunday], so [Cleveland will] get a little taste of Landry Jones. So we don't know what to expect from them. We'll have Landry Jones in there." Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has yet to confirm that Jones will start in place of Roethlisberger.

Though the Steelers have secured a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs, they could still claim home-field advantage throughout the postseason with a win and a Patriots loss to the Jets in Week 17. With New England a heavy favorite in their game, however, it appears the Steelers may already be conceding a Patriots victory and will instead turn their attention to resting key players Sunday, if Gilbert's comments are to be believed. Jones was evasive when asked if he would start against the Browns, telling Benz that it was a "coach's decision." More information on the status of Roethlisberger should be known no later than shortly after inactives are released about 90 minutes before the Sunday's 1 p.m. EST kickoff, in the event Tomlin declines to comment on the matter beforehand. In spot action across his five seasons in the league, Jones has completed 59.9 percent of his passes and has a 7:6 TD:INT ratio, numbers that won't necessarily make him attractive fantasy dart if he does in fact receive the start. Jones' upside would be further limited without the Steelers' top two playmakers in Le'Veon Bell -- who Gilbert also said would sit out Sunday -- and Antonio Brown (lower leg) flanking him.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Productive in extended duty Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (abdomen) completed 21 of 31 passes for 163 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 19-15 preseason loss to the Colts.

Like starter Ben Roethlisberger, Jones was logging his first preseason action Saturday. He looked sharp overall and found Xavier Grimble for a 10-yard touchdown in the third quarter, although he did cost what was likely the Steelers' final hope for victory by throwing an interception in the end zone with under five minutes to go in the contest. Jones is once again slated to serve as Roethlisberger's top backup in the coming season, and given the latter's injury history, he could well see action at some point in 2017.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Expected to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (abdomen) is expected to play in his first preseason game Saturday against the Colts, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Coach Mike Tomlin said that this is a big week for Jones, who has been battling an abdominal injury for nearly a month. With his return to health, Jones is on track to serve as the primary backup to starter Ben Roethlisberger in the coming season.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (abdomen) practiced Wednesday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Jones has been plagued with the abdomen issue for little over two weeks now. It seems like he's closing in on a return to full health, but we should garner a better understanding of his progress by how he holds up in practice over the next week or so. Jones is expected to be Pittsburgh's backup quarterback for the season opener.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (abdomen) is unlikely to play in Friday's preseason game against the Giants, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Sidelined for more than a week due to an abdominal injury, Jones has since been joined by Ben Roethlisberger (ankle). With both quarterbacks on the pine Friday, the Steelers are expected to turn to rookie QB Josh Dobbs under center from the first offensive possession. In the regular season, though, Jones will be called upon in the event Roethlisberger misses any time.

Steelers' Landry Jones: Not practicing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (abdomen) did not participate in Sunday's practice, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Jones apparently is still dealing with the reprocussions of an abdominal injury that forced him to leave practice early last Monday. After not returning to the field, Jones hasn't practiced in nearly a week, and the team hasn't provided an update on the backup's timetable for recovery. Until he's able to return, rookie Josh Dobbs will continue to serve as the team's No. 2 in training camp.
