Door Now Wide Open For Xavier Grimble

Things have certainly changed for the Pittsburgh Steelers from a year ago when it comes to the tight end depth chart. Longtime veterans Heath Miller and Matt Spaeth are gone, and there have been no one-for-one replacements for either. Ladarius Green was the big free agent signing, but is a…

Steelers Parting From Miller-Spaeth TE Mold In Green, Grimble

When the Pittsburgh Steelers take the field for the first time this year, the offense will look a bit different in places, as will the defense, but the starkest contrast, at least on the former side of the ball, will come at the tight end position following the retirement of…

Release Of Matt Spaeth Forces Wholesale Transition At Tight End

It seems that while I was away, the Pittsburgh Steelers elected to start chipping away at my namesakes on the 53-man roster, releasing longtime veteran tight end Matt Spaeth with a failed physical designation, citing his slow rehabilitation from offseason knee surgery that would have left him unprepared to contribute….

Now that we have completed our look at the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 90-man roster heading into training camp a bit under a month from now, it’s time to take a look back at the team’s 53-man roster from last year’s regular season, for the purpose of revisiting the contributions of the players…

Steelers Have No Reason To “Nix” Fullback Usage In 2016

Don’t tell Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix that the position he plays is meaningless. Sure, he may have only played 150 total snaps on offense during the 2015 season, but his presence sure was noticeable during that limited playing time. When Nix was on the field last season, the Steelers…
