Jones decides on No. 91

Posted by Bob Labriola on April 26, 2013 – 5:28 pm

The picking of a jersey number can be a significant moment for a rookie entering the NFL, especially for one who wore a number in college that’s suddenly illegal for his position. Jarvis Jones wore No. 29 during his career at Georgia, a career that ended with a 2012 season in which he led the nation in tackles for loss with 24.5 while also leading the nation in sacks with 14.5.

With No. 29 not available for linebackers in the NFL, Jones has decided on No. 91.

Most recently, No. 91 was worn with distinction by Aaron Smith, but he did it as a defensive end. The OLBs to wear jersey No. 91 for the Steelers were Jerrol Williams and Kevin Greene.

Williams was a fourth-round pick in 1989 from Purdue, and he played four seasons for the Steelers, during which he posted 17.5 sacks. Ironically it was Greene who was signed as an unrestricted free agent upon Williams’ leaving as a UFA for San Diego after the 1992 season. In three years as the Steelers’ LOLB, Greene rolled up 35.5 sacks.
