PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Steelers have reportedly claimed wide receiver Jacoby Jones.

CBS Sports insider Jason La Canfora first reported the pick up.

The wideout was cut by the Chargers on Tuesday.

Jones was a First-team All-Pro in 2012 when he took home the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award five times.  He also made the Pro Bowl that season.

You might remember Jones’ famous return in which head coach Mike Tomlin appeared to trip Jones during a return when he played for the Baltimore Ravens.

The team announced that Dri Archer was released.

The team says that Jones has amassed 10,184 all-purpose yards (4,720 kickoff return, 2,669 punt return, 2,733 receiving and 62 rushing) and 23 touchdowns (14 receiving, five kickoff and four punt return) in 124 regular-season games with 33 starts.

Jones originally entered the NFL as a third-round (73rd overall) draft choice of the Houston Texans in 2007, and spent his first five (2007-11) years in the NFL with Houston before three years with the Baltimore Ravens (2011-14) and the first eight weeks of the 2015 season with San Diego.
