    Steelers tried to get Landry Jones back after BigBen's injury -XFL blocked the move

    Man pornstache could have made a return.


    Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
    See my heart I decorate it like a grave
    You don't understand who they thought
    I was supposed to be
    Look at me now a man
    Who won't let himself be

    If true, then the brain trust is even stupider than I thought.

    According to an interview in the Tampa Bay Times, XFL commissioner Oliver Luck is quoted as saying that the Steelers wanted to sign quarterback Landry Jones back to the team after losing Roethlisberger to a season-ending elbow injury in Week 2. However, Luck essentially went on to say that being as Jones had already signed a contract with the Dallas Renegades of the XFL that the league wasn’t going to relinquish the rights so that he could sign with an NFL team.
    looks true to me

    Reaching out to see if someone was available, doesn't mean they were going to sign him. And I'm glad they stuck with the guys that performed well in camp this year. Plus I'd rather have Paxton than Laundry at this point in their careers.

    I remember the XFL put out a little blurp at the time it was happening. I think they tried to ride it's publicity but found the player in question just didn't garner the publicity stunt wanted. Don't get me wrong because Landry is surely a good person but I think he was ending and our current guys are just getting started.

    That's a little rough Ron. I agree with the hook and Duck has played a little better than Rudolph. But they won some games. He looked pretty good at times.

    Landry Jones didn't stick on ONE nfl roster all last year after we cut him loose. He went to Jax even, and didn't stick there. The guy sucks, like really sucks, plain and simple. I wish him the best in the XFL, but he's not an nfl quarterback, not even at backup.

    Thank god dirty Laundry wasn't able to come back

    Understandable given the untested nature of Ben's backups at the time. Very glad the XFL held the line on that one. No question in my mind The Duck is better now than Landry Jones ever was or ever will be.
