Jets Hosting DE Howard Jones For Visit On Friday

Jenna Laine of ESPN reports that the Jets are bringing in DE Howard Jones for a visit on Friday.

Jones, 27, originally signed on with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Shepherd back in 2014. He lasted just over a year in Pittsburgh before he was waived at the start of the 2015 season and later signed to the Buccaneers’ practice squad.

Tampa Bay declined to tender him a contract last week, which is why he’s testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2016, Jones appeared in eight games for the Buccaneers and recorded three tackles and fumble a recovery.
