Jacoby got some bad news on Tuesday when the Chargers cut him, but he wasn’t out of a job for long. The Steelers announced Thursday that they claimed Jones off of waivers. Congratulations, Jacoby. 

JaCoby isn’t having such a good day. The Tigers prospect got suspended for 50 games Thursday after testing positive for recreational drugs. 

Good luck in Pittsburgh, Jacoby. 

Keep your head up, JaCoby.
