Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday April 9th
Santonio Holmes attorney, Adam B. Swickle, claims no one threw a liquor glass at a woman in the Orlando nightclub. Swickle has sent evidence that suggest a glass wasn\’t even thrown that night at Anshonae Mills. Swickle did not reveal what specific information he sent to investigators, but he does sound pretty convincing.
ESPN Pittsburgh host, Ken Laird, wrote on his blog that he too does not see Santonio Holmes getting his contract extended and says he thinks Holmes would rather play in a big market as well. Laird also writes that Hines Ward plans on playing two more seasons provided he stays healthy.
