Door Swings Open For Anthony Chickillo On Defense

The implications that stem from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ placing second-year starting outside linebacker Bud Dupree are many.

Browns Wipe Slate Clean Of Past First-Round Busts

Over the course of the past couple of weeks, the Cleveland Browns have traded not one, but two fairly recent top-10 draft picks for late-round draft picks in exchange. Even the Pittsburgh Steelers happened to get one of them a couple of days back when they forfeited a 2018 sixth-round…

One, Maybe Two More Roster Moves Likely Coming Sunday For Steelers

Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers have set their initial 53-man roster for the 2016 regular season, one can easily speculate it will change some over the course of the next two days.

Newly-Shaped Cornerback Group Lacks Physical Presence

You might recall back during the draft that I invoked the name Justin Gilbert in referencing the Pittsburgh Steelers’ selection of cornerback Artie Burns in the first round, noting that the team wanted to draft him the year he came out in 2014, and that Burns fits the same sort…



Good, Bad, And Ugly Of The Justin Gilbert Trade

This would qualify as football’s version of a spit take. Color me shocked when I saw the news come in the Pittsburgh Steelers traded for Justin Gilbert. A move I, and I’m sure you felt the same, did not expect. Lot to take in, even realizing this is a player who…
