Subway Restaurants has a new NFL spokesman, former Georgia linebacker and Pittsburgh Steelers draftee Jarvis Jones. While he plans on terrifying his opponents on the field for years, Subway already terrified tons of its customers by unveiling this massive sculpture of Jones made from bread, lettuce and meat.
Seriously, this is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen. Are his shoulder pads made of tuna?

As expected, people are already speculating how the Pittsburgh Steelers will use outside linebacker Jarvis Jones on defense during his rookie season. For those of you that think Jones will see the field much on defense baring an injury, shame on you, as it is well known that rookie linebackers in Pittsburgh not named Kendrell Bell generally only play on special teams. If they are...
Following the 2013 NFL combine, Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN, and several others for that matter, had Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones atop their prospect rankings. These rankings were also released after Jones had been poked and prodded by every team doctor who wanted to check out his the spinal stenosis in Indianapolis. In a matter of two months time, Jones found himself still on the board...
Are you ready to buy a Jarvis Jones jersey? If so, it appears that the Pittsburgh Steelers first round draft pick out of Georgia will wear No.91, the same number that the great Aaron Smith wore for so many years, according to the team website.
Many have speculated since his selection Thursday night, that because Jones wore No.29 in college, that he would likely ask for No.92, which...

The optimism following the 2013 NFL Draft is always electric. In a perfect 2013 NFL season, Jarvis Jones would lead the league in sacks, Le’Veon Bell would rush for 1500 yards, and Markus Wheaton would make Steelers fans even happier that Mike Wallace left for Miami. The reality is, however, nobody knows how these players will turn out, and whether or not they...
In a pre-taped segment that aired on ESPN before the NFL draft, comedian Frank Caliendo broke out his impression of NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., and he absolutely nailed it.
Fellow NFL draft analyst Todd McShay played the straight man as Caliendo takes Kiper's personality and expands it to topics way outside the NFL world. Brilliantly funny.

Jarvis Jones was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 17th overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Just call him Broadway Jarvis.

I wrote earlier this week that if I had my druthers I would take Texas’ Safety Kenny Vaccaro over Georgia Linebacker Jarvis Jones with pick 17 in the first round of the NFL Draft. The next day, I wrote about taking Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert if the Steelers were to go offense with the pick.
As it turned out last night in New York, the one team I thought would take Jones...
