A lot is expected of Pittsburgh Steelers second round draft pick defensive end Stephon Tuitt and on Tuesday, those expectations perhaps increased even more as he’s announced that he has been issued No. 91.
The great Aaron Smith of course wore No. 91 from 1999-2011 and it sounds like Tuitt was given a good history lesson about the number based on his recent Instagram post.
“The long wait is over my jersey number is going to be 91. Can’t wait to represent this Number with pride and respect for my organization!!!!! #STEELERNATION#DOITTUITT“
Tuitt started 29-of-35 games at Notre Dame and he finished his career with 127 tackles (59 solos), 21.5 sacks for minus 163 yards, 25.0 stops for losses of 176 yards and 27 quarter-back pressures.
