Steelers Six From Around The Web – Tuesday March 30th
Judging by this article in the Tribune-Review this morning, the Orlando Police department will write a report for the March 7th incident between Santonio Holmes and Anshonone Mills. The article also has the transgression of events that happened that night.
Santonio told ESPN\’s Rachel Nichols that he “didn\’t do anything” and expects the matter to be dealt with quickly. This will likely cost Holmes an out of court payoff, but that is speculation on my part. Mills is seeking more than $15,000 in damages from Holmes and I bet she gets that and more.
Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, speculates that the Steelers will likely not choose to sign Santonio to an extension this offseason and I agree with him. As Cook points out, this is the fourth incident involving Holmes since the Steelers drafted him with their No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft.
Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith has made enough of a recovery from a torn right rotator cuff is coming along fine and that he is not restricted in workouts thus far. “It\’s good,” Smith said of his shoulder. “The strength\’s coming back. I pretty much got the go-ahead to do anything I want.” Smith also met the media on Monday and you can see some footage below.
ESPN talking heads Mike Tirico, Mel Kiper Jr., Trent Dilfer and Chris Mortensen recently discussed the Steelers needs in the upcoming NFL Draft. The video from ESPN is below and I won\’t spoil it for you.
Gerry Dulac from the PPG joined the NFL Network to discuss his thoughts on what the Steelers should do during the draft. Dulac says Maurkice Pouncey will be drafted and moved to right guard until the center position is vacated. Both Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis think defensive backs.
