While at the Homeboys Football Camp at Ambridge High School, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said the team is exploring options at right tackle with Willie Colon lost for the year and that includes free agents that might be released elsewhere. Also he thinks the top two draft picks Maurkice Pouncey and Jason Worilds will have their contracts done soon and be at camp on time.
Speaking of Jason Worilds, Part 2 of the Ask The Steelers segment with the second round pick is up now on Steelers.com. Worilds says the team is tight knit, extremely tight knit. We shall see just how tight knit they are come training camp when the hitting starts.
Out of nowhere Steelers 4-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Terry Bradshaw tore into Panthers rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen. The Blonde Bomber claims the Notre Dame product has too slow of a delivery and way too much shoulder action. This may be one of the reasons he fell out of the first round. We will see.

New Ravens backup quarterback Marc Bulger says he is no longer a Steelers fan. Bulger claims “got born into being a Steelers fan.” Cry me a Three Rivers. He should only be so lucky. I indeed hope Mr. Bulger gets some playing time this year in Pittsburgh so he can see the great view of the Pittsburgh sky while laying on his back on Heinz Field.
40 years ago today, Three Rivers Stadium, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Pirates, officially opened as the Pirates lost to the Cincinnati Reds 3-2. The stadium was demolished in 2001 after Heinz Field and PNC Park were finished.
How quick injured linemen can fall. Former Steelers offensive lineman Darnell Stapleton was signed by the Florida Tuskers of the UFL. The Tuskers are coached by Jay Gruden, the brother of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden. We wish Darnell all the best.
