PITTSBURGH (AP) — A return to form by Jacoby Jones is exactly what the Pittsburgh Steelers hope to see.

Though Tomlin denied intentionally trying to interfere with Jones, he smiled when watching the replay on the video board and was fined $100,Wholesale NFL Jerseys,000 by the NFL.
Dri Archer, who was released to open a roster spot for Jones, had been Pittsburgh's primary kickoff returner and averaged 25.3 yards per return. He totaled just 34 yards on two returns in last week's loss to Cincinnati, getting tackled inside the Steelers' 20 both times.
"He's the type of guy who can take it back 103 yards for a score," Blake said. "We've seen it happen before. We know what he can do."
That came on Thanksgiving night in 2013 in Baltimore when Jones seemed on his way to returning a kickoff for a touchdown. He was forced to cut inside from the sideline,Jerseys Wholesale, however, to avoid Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who had stepped onto the field.
