The Pittsburgh Steelers have finalized the signing of their 2013 NFL Draft class today by agreeing to terms with fourth-round selection Landry Jones out of Oklahoma.
From Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

There is a belief that the Steelers will groom Jones to eventually become the successor for Ben Roethlisberger, but Jones will need to show a lot more consistency than he did in his college days if he is going to have any success at the NFL level.
For now, Jones will settle in as the team’s No. 3 signal-caller behind Roethlisberger and free agent signee Bruce Gradkowski.
