Mike Tomlin: T.J. Watt Was ‘An Easy Evaluation’

It is often the case that NFL teams who play in a ‘base’ 3-4 front, regardless of whether or not they play in a true base of the 3-4 since the proliferation of the nickel defense, have had to do an extra level of projection when drafting players to occupy,…


Roethlisberger Admits He ‘Pushed Hard’ For Steelers To Draft Conner

A few weeks ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft taking place it was reported that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was lobbying the team to select a tight end this year. The quarterback wasted no time refuting that report, however, with that said, Roethlisberger reportedly did lobby the team to…


Keith Butler Stresses Focus On Improving Steelers’ Pass Rush

For as close-to-the-vest as the Pittsburgh Steelers’ normally are, they’re generally transparent about the areas of the team they have to address. Before the draft, the team made it clear they wanted to develop a better pass rush and they walked away with a pair of outside linebackers. Sitting down…


Steelers Defense Continues Trending Younger

Don’t look now, but the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense may have just gotten significantly younger once again following the 2017 free agency period and the draft. By the time the regular season opens—or at least, perhaps, but the time that it ends—it seems there are pretty good odds that the team…



Devil’s Advocate: Gay Stays Put In The Slot

You may recall for the past several offseasons that I ran an article series called The Optimist’s/Pessimist’s Take.

Jerald Hawkins Shown Healthy, Working Out During Phase Two Of Offseason

Some minor Friday housekeeping for you. But we’re getting a look at the Pittsburgh Steelers for the first time since January so it’s always fun to check back in. We’ve already told you about Ladarius Green’s return to workouts. Green, by the way, was photographed again, going through a more…



Daniel McCullers’ Roster Spot Seemingly Unchallenged After The Draft

There’s several players who “lost” the NFL Draft. Arthur Moats’ roster spot could be considered a coinflip. Kevin Colbert backed up his words and put Senquez Golson on notice. And though predictable, there’s seemingly no longer a home for Fitzgerald Toussaint. Then there are the players who won. Ladarius Green…


2017 UDFA Reports: Georgia Tech DE Francis Kallon

The draft is over but we’re not finished breaking down their prospects just yet. While we had a scouting report on every non-long snapper drafted, we didn’t write one on most of the Pittsburgh Steelers undrafted free agents. So we’ll be covering those names over the next several weeks. Moving…


2017 Steelers Stock Watch – ILB Vince Williams – Stock Up

With the 2017 NFL Draft now over and the bulk of the heavy lifting done with regard to the roster building process now out of the way, it is easier to begin to take stock of where the Pittsburgh Steelers stand at certain positions, and what the implications might be…


Football Is Literally Family In Steelers’ Scouting Department

A couple of days back Alex Kozora posted an enlightening article that did some digging into the Pittsburgh Steelers’ scouting department and looked at their level of experience as well as tenure with the organization. In light of a number of teams recently parting ways with some or even all…


Steelers Pest And Former Raven Justin Forsett Retires

I think that Pittsburgh Steelers fans will best remember him as a pest for the 150 yards he put on them in 2015, but nobody has to worry about former running back Justin Forsett on the football field any longer after recently announcing his retirement following a nine-year career that…


2017 Offseason Questions: Which Rookie Will Have Most Immediate Impact?

The 2016 season is unfortunately over, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are now embarking upon their latest offseason journey, heading back to the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex, formerly known and still referred to as the ‘South Side’ facility of Heinz Field.
