Film Room: Javon Hargrave Embarrasses J.C. Tretter

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year defensive tackle Javon Hargrave did not log for himself a heaping helping of snaps during Sunday’s regular season opener—just 25 of 66 defensive snaps—but he made the most of the snaps that he did get, and that included registering a sack, while nearly having another to his…
