Jim Wexell has a snapshot profile up on Steelers fifth-round pick cornerback Crezdon Butler. Butler has been impressing and backing up Ike Taylor right now at right cornerback. It seems his chances of making the roster are really quite good and should be a player to keep focused on during camp.
The new reality show featuring Bengals loud mouth, Chad Ochocinco, debuted last night on VH1. The show called the “The Ultimate Catch” is similar to ABC’s The Bachelor and it follows Chad over the next several weeks as he pares a field of 85 women down to one winner. The first episode featured an early shot at the Steelers where Chad says, “85 woman! That my friends is the Ocho Cinco way. Man, I haven\’t seen this many girls on a football field since the last time we played the Steelers.” This was noted real quick, especially by Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who told Chad via Twitter, u just added Fire 2 The Flame!!!. Video of the clip is below.
Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett also took a crack at Big Ben during an online chat on ESPN. Dockett said Roethlisberger is toughest QB to sack but the easiest to sack if you can catch him in a bathroom stall. Keep your day job, Darnell.
