Steelers Acquire RB Felix Jones From Eagles For LB Robinson

Felix Jones

The Steelers announced today that they have agreed to a deal with the Eagles, which sees the Black and Gold move LB Adrian Robinson to the Eagles in exchange for running back Felix Jones.

Jones is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys, though according to did not impress, and wasn’t likely to make the roster in Philly.

Robinson played in 12 games for the Steelers in 2012, and had just four total tackles in limited action. He did recover a botched snap in the end zone for a touchdown against the Giants two weeks ago in the preseason game at Heinz Field.

Mike Tomlin called Robinson a “one-trick pony” last season, saying he is able to get to the quarterback but can’t drop into coverage.

Jones is a sixth-year pro from Arkansas, he inked a one-year deal with the Eagles this offseason.

It’s not a for sure that Jones will make the roster, as he will battle with Jonathan Dwyer, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Baron Batch for a roster spot.

Rookie Le’Veon Bell is expected to miss the start of the season with a mid-foot sprain, leaving Isaac Redman as the team’s expected starter.

    This is proof positive that the Steelers are not sold on Issac Redman and Johnathan Dwyer as their starting running backs . If Dwyer continues his fumbling problem , dont be surprised if Felix Jones is not your starter come opening day .
