The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers 2017 Rookie Minicamp Recap, Signings, 53-Man Roster & More

Season 7, Episode 112 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd is back in the co-host chair and we start things off by talking about the news and notes that came out of the Pittsburgh Steelers 2017 rookie minicamp that took place over the weekend.

So far, the Steelers have signed two players who took part in the rookie minicamp on a tryout basis so we bring you up to speed on both.

David and I discuss the potential of the team’s first three draft picks this year each playing more than 50% of the total defensive or offensive snaps during their rookie seasons and if it will be disappointment if they don’t.

With Alex Kozora releasing his first 2017 53-man roster prediction Monday morning, David and I both his choices as we go through all the position groups.

We close the show with some weekend items from around the rest of the NFL.

As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.

    I just love this show… Thanx for everything you guys do SteelNation Salutes you!

  • Alex Kozora

    Thanks for listening, Rodney!

  • Keith Evans

    great show….but DT needs to type quieter…

  • Lambert58

    I think you have to keep 4 TEs with Green and his injury history.

  • Alex Kozora

    2 on the PS gives you insurance. Can call Grimble up.

  • Rusted Out

    7 WR’s on the roster and two of them are Ayers and DHB? Not a chance.
    1. AB
    2. MB
    3. Juju
    4. Coates
    5. Rogers
    6. Hunter

  • Keith Evans

    Ayers came on strong tale end of last season. He has upside as a return man. He could oust Rogers. Coates could be on the hot seat as both Hunter and Dhb can get deep and are arguably just as reliable catching the ball.

  • JamesinNYC

    I liked the idea and with your roster construction it makes good sense.
    There will be some injury unfortunately so all you can do is make a logical guess at this point

  • Rodney JEune

    I highly doubt that Grimble who has Size,athleticism,versatility, and experience will last on the PS…He could be a solid #2 on other teams.
    The 4 TE roster is probably to open up the playbook and run out of double tight, L Bell Runs well with a 7 man Line.
    We have to imagine that the scrub looking Todd H wants strength out of every formation he uses and depth, so
    TE /FB
    DJ A- Inline blocker B+ Offline blocker C+ Receiving B- STeam
    L Green C+ inline Blocking B- offline Blocker A Receiving F STeam
    JJ B inline Blocking B offline Blocker B+ Receiving C+ STeam
    Grimble B- inline Blocking B- offline Blocker B+ Receiving B STeam
    Rosy Nix B+ inline Blocking A offline Blocker C+ Receiving A- STeam
    with 2 more Rookies

    With so many Elite players attracting attention keeping 4 TE makes the most sense to be able to have a powerful running game no matter how many the Def puts in the box.

  • Rusted Out

    Wrong, wrong, and the Steelers aren’t keeping 7 wr’s.

  • KiJana Haney

    I wouldn’t be disappointed if golson becomes the starting nickel corner. I think it is unlikely but I would definitely support the decision if it was to happen.
