The Ed Bouchette weekly Steelers chat transcript was posted yesterday afternoon for reading. Ed puts to bed the laughable JaMarcus Russell and Terrell Owens talk.
Ohio State rookie outside linebacker Thaddeus Gibson will miss most of the Steelers offseason practices because of a league rule that prohibits undergraduates from taking part in voluntary drills while still in class. Hines Ward is still recovering from a strained hamstring and Troy Polamalu is in California training.
ESPN AFC North blogger James Walker addressed the LaMarr Woodley contract extension on his blog yesterday. Walker points as many of us have to the recent Patrick Willis contract done with the 49ers. Woodley said yesterday he is not concerned about things he has no control over.
Speaking of Woodley, we missed an interview he gave to Jim Rome on the Last Word sometime last week. a reader sent us a link to it and Woodley talks about the steelers offseason among other things.
