Heyward Expects A Lot From Tuitt In 2015

When the Pittsburgh Steelers 2015 season gets underway, second-year defensive end Stephon Tuitt will only be 22 years-old. And while the Notre Dame product and former second-round draft pick had a few struggles during his rookie season in the 405 snaps that he played, fellow defensive end Cameron Heyward said…


Steelers DL Coach Mitchell A Selfless Man, Just Like His Players

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive line coach John Mitchell can be looked at as a mad scientist of sorts, trying to mold massive pieces of clay into a monstrous Frankenstein type of wrecking machine for the team’s 3-4 defense. Whether it be turning a first-rounder like defensive end Cameron Heyward into one of the best in…


Jarvis Jones Almost Chose The Hardwood Over The Gridiron

Much like with Pittsburgh’s second round draft choice, Senquez Golson, and his dual-sport skills, it seems the Steelers have another athlete whose athleticism isn’t merely limited to the gridiron. At Carver High School in Columbus, Georgia, Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones was one of the most sought after prospects in the nation, and Tom…


Final Steelers Defensive Line Spots Up For Grabs This Offseason

Entering each training camp, there are typically only a handful of roster spots that are truly open. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, the most wide open battle could be along the defensive line. The team usually tries to keep six, doing just that in three of the last four years. Only…



Where Are They Now? Baron Batch

From high school gridirons to signing days and college campuses to draft day and million dollar salaries, football has certain stages of it, with the NFL obviously being the pinnacle. But what happens after the NFL? For some, like current Oakland Raider Charles Woodson, he’s been playing almost the equivalent…


Steelers Placed Emphasis On Character, Leadership In Draft

While one of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin’s favorite themes of the 2015 NFL Draft was finding the players who have the tangible evidence in their credentials as prospects, one of the underlying themes of the event, and of the whole offseason, was leadership. The Steelers are in a…


Steelers Cam Thomas, Clifton Geathers Get New Jersey Numbers

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey isn’t the only veteran player that will have a new number this season as two more have now switched digits. According to the Steelers official website, everyone’s favorite defensive lineman, Cam Thomas, will now wear No. 93, which was worn previously by linebacker Jason…


Joey Porter Wants To Keep James Harrison’s Snap Count Down To 25

Even knowing that they only had Jason Worilds on a transition tag and projected to lose him the following year, and only signed free agent Arthur Moats to a one-year, veteran-minimum contract, the Pittsburgh Steelers entirely ignored the outside linebacker position in the 2014 NFL Draft, and only carried three…



Steelers Greatest Draft Steals

Backups and special teamers. That’s typically the fruit of third day draft selections. But every once in a while, a real hidden gem is found in the late rounds and the Pittsburgh Steelers have proven better at digging them up than most teams. Will there be a Steelers player selected…


Steelers Will Go Into Draft With Open Mind

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost a boat load of veteran leadership and experience from the defensive side of the ball since last season, namely Jason Worilds, Brett Keisel, Ike Taylor and Troy Polamalu. Those are four starters gone, and on paper seems to be a lot to replace at the snap of a finger, something general…



Rebuilding An Iconic Defense Doesn’t Happen Overnight

Right in the midst of a rebuild, the run defense of the current Pittsburgh Steelers made significant strides down the home stretch of the 2014 season. Seemingly, this coincided with the entrance of rookie defensive end, Stephon Tuitt, into the starting lineup, and the future looks bright for him. Behemoth rookie…
