The agent for kicker Jeff Reed met with Steelers executives Kevin Colbert and Omar Khan in Pittsburgh on Tuesday to negotiate a multiyear contract before July 15.

Ed Bouchette takes a brief look at the history of #80 and a few Steelers bad fortunes that have worn that number. The latest being receiver Limas Sweed who tore his Achilles in mini-camp. Mark Stock is a blast from the past. I remember that drop clear as day.
Deadspin has a letter from Art Rooney II to a fan regarding the Ben Roethlisberger situation. While it is likely a form letter sent out to all fans that wrote in, I personally feel it could of been worded better.
