Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday April 2nd
The woman that is suing Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes over a March 7th nightclub incident has changed her mind and now wants criminal charges filed against him. Anshonae Mills originally declined to press charges and stated that she didn\’t want to get Holmes in trouble. Police have decided to re-activate the case that was closed on Tuesday of this week. Holmes\’ lawyer is turning up the heat as well. Looks like another soap opera like story line that will play out through the Summer.
Ed Bouchette reports that free agent running back Willie Parker talked to Steelers coach Mike Tomlin this week, and would not rule out a return to the Steelers. Parker described his feelings as “a little salty,” not bitter, and that he definitely is not ready to retire. The Steelers could really use the depth and experience Parker would offer.
