Steelers decline fifth-year option for Jarvis Jones

The Pittsburgh Steelers declined to pick up a fifth-year option for outside linebacker Jarvis Jones. Jones would have been paid $8.4 million in 2017. He'll now become a free agent after this season. Jones started all but one game last season, and recorded two sacks, a forced fumble, and an interception. He has 26 career starts and five sacks.
