  Steelers | Landry Jones will be busy Thursday    Wed Aug 28, 12:06 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones is expected to take a bulk of the snaps in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 29, against the Carolina Panthers. He is the team's third-string quarterback following the departure of QB John Parker Wilson.

Footballguys view: The team needs to get Jones as many reps as possible to continue his development. He looks the part, has the arm strength, and plays with high football intelligence. However, Jones is frustrating to watch because he is not the sum of his parts. Too often his accuracy is off and he's known as a streaky player.

  Steelers | Trim roster to 75    Sun Aug 25, 09:17 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers released OT D'Anthony Batiste, RB Baron Batch, OT Mike Farrell, WR David Gilreath, WR Tyler Shaw, CB Ryan Steed, LB Stevenson Sylvester, TE Peter Tuitupou, QB John Parker Wilson, WR J.D. Woods and RB Jeremy Wright Sunday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: Batch seemed promising before he tore his ACL last summer. The Steelers signed LaRod Stephens-Howling and traded for Felix Jones, sealing Batch's fate.

  Steelers | Three reserve QBs scheduled to play    Fri Aug 9, 02:15 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers plan to use QBs Bruce Gradkowski in the first quarter of the preseason opener against the New York Giants, replacing QB Ben Roethlisberger. QB John Parker Wilson will also see time, as will QB Landry Jones. Jones has reportedly struggled in his first two weeks of training camp.

Footballguys view: Jones is a rookie who certainly looks the part. He'll likely make the roster as a developmental prospect. Jones needs to work on his accuracy and gain more consistent mechanics if he wants to play up to his potential.

  Falcons | Dominique Davis, John Parker Wilson battling for job    Mon Jun 18, 11:11 PM

Atlanta Falcons QBs Dominique Davis and John Parker Wilson are expected to compete for the third quarterback job behind starter QB Matt Ryan and backup QB Chris Redman.

Footballguys view: We like Wilson in this competition. Davis is a more athletic QB but struggles with throwing on the run and isn't that accurate. Wilson is maxed out as a third-string guy and his dynasty value is zero.

  Falcons | Wilson to be top backup QB Week 13    Fri Dec 4, 12:30 PM

D. Orlando Ledbetter, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Atlanta Falcons QB John Parker Wilson will be the primary backup quarterback in Week 13.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Alabama moves up the depth chart with the injury to Matt Ryan. Wilson is not a prototypical quarterback with good size and a rocket arm, but he can keep plays alive with his feet and has leadership qualities.

  Falcons | Redman to start in Week 13    Tue Dec 1, 02:12 PM

NFL.com reports Atlanta Falcons QB Chris Redman will start in Week 13 with QB Matt Ryan (toe) hobbled. QB John Parker Wilson will serve as Redman's backup.

Footballguys view: The veteran from Louisville played well in relief of Matt Ryan last week against the Bucs. This week the Falcons play the Eagles, and the Philly defense could take advantage of the backup quarterback.

Footballguys view: Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood both active for Atlanta today. Expect all three to see playing time and limit the upside for each other. Turner and Snelling are risky RB2 bets, with Norwood unlikely to have any value.
