Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday June 12th

Head coach Mike Tomlin said on Thursday that second-year receiver Limas Sweed does not have the inside track on the No. 3 wide receiver spot and in fact said the No. 3 receiver job vacated by Nate Washington is wide open. When asked who else is in the mix, Tomlin said, “All the guys other than Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes.”

Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith, nose tackle Casey Hampton, linebacker James Farrior safety Troy Polamalu and safety Ryan Clark were all absent from this week\’s OTA session.

Dale Lolley seems to think the Steelers have more of a fire burning in them that the 2006 team was lacking after their Super Bowl win.

The Falcons cut quarterback Michael Vick this morning, I have a funny feeling that the Bengals are trying to get his agent on the phone as soon as possible.

Former Steeler Kimo von Oelhoffen has been hired as a Browns coaching intern. It is an entry-level coaching job, but Eric Mangini talked as if von Oelhoffen will have an important, hands-on role. Perhaps being more involved in the two Carson Palmer games? LOL

Tonight is the Stanley Cup deciding game for the Pens against Detroit. Let\’s bring back the cup to Pittsburgh, boys. DO IT! I think China Jack speaks for us all! LETS GO PENS!!!
