Pittsburgh Steelers claim PR/KR Jacoby Jones off waivers

Good news for the San Diego Chargers that may end up coming back to haunt them.

Well, this is interesting.

It's not interesting just because Jacoby Jones and Mike Tomlin are forever tied to one another...

...but also because the Pittsburgh Steelers claimed Jacoby Jones and his seemingly monstrous contract off of waivers from the San Diego Chargers.

Before this trainwreck of a half-season with the Chargers, Jones was viewed as one of the best returners in the entire league. If he can return to form, he could certainly help a Pittsburgh Steelers team that seems to be just one or two players away from being a playoff team.

If he plays well, it would be the nail in the coffin for San Diego Chargers Special Teams Coach Kevin Spencer. A sign that he can't even get a decent special teams put together with top-notch special teams players.
