Jones agreed Wednesday with the Steelers on a contract, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Jones has previously spent time on various teams' offseason rosters and practice squads, but he has yet to make his NFL regular-season debut. After a stint as a starter in the XFL, he'll now get a shot to compete for a depth role in Pittsburgh.
Jones was waived by the Lions on Thursday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Jones signed a future/reserve contract with the Lions on Dec. 31 of 2018 -- barely five months ago -- but is now a free agent again. The Notre Dame product was originally a defensive end but began the transition to the offensive line. Whether Jones signs with another team -- and what side of the ball he 'd play on -- should become more clear as the offseason rolls on.
Jones signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Monday.
Now in Detroit, it isn't clear if Jones (6-foot-6, 320 pounds) will continue his attempted transition to offensive tackle after spending his college career at Notre Dame as a defensive end. We should know more as the offseason unfolds.
Jones was released from the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The Notre Dame product signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad in Week 2 after his release from the Giants following the preseason. He's now free to sign elsewhere.
