Felix Jones traded to Steelers
The ill-fated career of former first-round running back Felix Jones continues to flounder. After being released by the Cowboys and signing a one-year deal with the Eagles, the former Arkansas running back has been traded to the Steelers.
In exchange, Pittsburgh dealt away outside linebacker Adrian Robinson, who fits the Eagles' newly-implemented 3-4 defense.
Jones fell out of favor in Philly with the emergence of Chris Polk behind starter LeSean McCoy. The Eagles' other tailback is second-year man Bryce Brown.
The Steelers need depth at running back after the loss of Le'Veon Bell, who is out 4-6 weeks with a sprained right foot.
Jones was the 22nd pick in the 2008 draft, but eventually lost his starting job in Dallas to DeMarco Murray. Jones was a former college backfield mate of Darren McFadden, a first-round pick with Oakland in 2008.
