Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones taking on all comers in a virtual sense

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

The second-year player will challenge fans to games of NBA 2k14 via OverDog, a mobile App that links athletes to fans for video game competition.

Don't think Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones is solely a football player.

He was a great basketball player back in the day as well, and now, he'll give you a chance to take him on.

In a virtual sense, of course.

The Subway Famous Fan will be taking on all comers in NBA2k14, EA Sports' latest edition into one of the most successful video game franchises ever made. He's doing this through OverDog, a mobile app that pits pro athletes against fans in video game competition.

"People love college basketball, and especially the tournament, because of all the Cinderella stories where underdogs beat the odds and take down the favorites. That’s what OverDog is all about – pitting fans against the professional athletes they idolize on a digital playing field where they actually have a shot at winning," Hunter Hillenmeyer, President of OverDog and 8-year veteran linebacker with the Chicago Bears, said in a press release. "We’re thrilled to be partnering with Subway in an effort to ratchet up the intensity of this weekend’s competition on the court."

Before the Final Four games are played this afternoon, check out Jones taking on fans in NBA 2k14 in the live link below, or just watch it on OverDog's site. It should be live a little after 1 p.m. ET Saturday. You can download the OverDog app from iTunes by clicking this link.
