PITTSBURGH (AP) - Rookie Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Landry Jones says he has no idea if he'll one day replace Ben Roethlisberger.
Jones says that's a question better left answered by team owner Art Rooney II. His immediate concern is getting a hang of Pittsburgh's offense after spending the last four years rewriting the record book at Oklahoma.
Jones left the Sooners as the school's all-time leader in most categories, including yards passing and touchdowns. The Steelers chose him in the fourth round of the NFL draft last month, the highest the franchise has selected a quarterback since taking Roethlisberger in the first round in 2004.
Coach Mike Tomlin says he is impressed with Jones' attitude and ability to communicate but he remains a work in progress.
