The NFL never sleeps.
Not in the offseason, and certainly not during the preseason, as evidenced by the trade that went down this morning (8/23).
It might not be a monumental move, but it certainly could believe it or not, make a huge impact for both teams. Felix Jones never panned out for the Eagles, but that's because they already have a young and talented backfield.
The Steelers, on the other hand, find themselves in a bit of a hole when it comes to the running back poisition.
Rookie Le'Veon Bell went down with a sprained foot last week that will keep him sidelined for at least the first few games. Johnathan Dwyer seems to be the starter for the team with Bell out, and Isaac Redman or LaRod Stephens-Howling will likely be his back up.
Or will they?
Jones provides a great rushing threat for the team. He is a hard-nosed runner and certainly one of the better pass-catching backs in the league. Unlike in Philadelphia, Jones could be a great asset to this team, certainly in the first half of the season.
In return for the six-year back, the Steelers gave up 2012 undrafted free agent, linebacker Adrian Robinson.
Robinson made zero impact on the field his rookie year, but certainly has potential. The Steelers have a crowded ship at linebacker, and don't have time to mold and shape another young gun when all the focus is on rookie OLB Jarvis Jones.
The Eagles need all the help they can get at linebacker, so the second-year prospect could be of great value to the team. I wouldn't expect him to be a starter, but with Chip Kelly swapping the defense in-and-out all game, Robinson should have more than his fair share of attemps to make a difference.
