A familiar face will join Antonio Brown in the Raiders' locker room, as their quarterback room just got more crowded.
The Raiders signed former Pittsburgh Steelers QB Landry Jones on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Jones played with Brown in Pittsburgh from 2013 to 2017. On Nov. 8, 2015, Jones and Brown even connected on a game-winning drive against the Raiders.

Jones, who turns 30 on April 4, is one of four QBs on the Raiders roster. Last week, the Silver and Black signed Mike Glennon just over a week after cutting 2018 backup AJ McCarron. The Raiders say they're all-in on starter Derek Carr, but have meetings scheduled with some of the NFL draft's top quarterback prospects.

Still, it's worth noting that the Raiders only kept two QBs on the active roster last season. Nathan Peterman spent time on the practice squad down the stretch, and he signed a reserve-futures contract with the team in January.
In other words, Carr figures to be the only lock to make the roster in 2019. If the Raiders draft another quarterback, it's possible the Jones/Glennon/Peterman era ends rather quickly.
