1974 Profile: Steve Jones

Running Back
No. 46
"Jones came to the Bills on waivers from St. Louis just before the start of the regular season. He got into 11 games playing mostly on special teams, averaging 19.3 yards on six kickoffs returns, and carried the ball three times from scrimmage for nine yards. A fifth round pick of the Los Angeles Rams, Steve was traded from LA to St. Louis during the preseason and spent the final three weeks of the campaign on the Bills inactive roster.
One of the all-time great running backs in the history of Duke University, Steve had a three-year career rushing record of 683 carries for 2,951 yards, a 4.3 average and 20 touchdowns. He broke his own Duke rushing record as a senior with 1,236 yards on 287 attempts and was a unanimous selection on the writers-coaches All-Atlantic Coast Conference team."
