Rookie Steelers QB Landry Jones intent on getting set in NFL, not future

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.
