Shawn Lemon Release Comes As No Surprise

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a roster move yesterday after practice in an unsurprising move to bolster their depth at the cornerback position, which was unusually low with just seven on the roster.

Training Camp Day Three: Watch To Watch For

With the first two days resembling more like OTAs than training camp, the Pittsburgh Steelers are in pads for the first time today. Should make for an exciting day. Here’s a couple things I’m watching for. – The obvious ones. We know the team is in pads but will there…

Steelers 2015 Training Camp Stock Report: Day 2

The energy and pep were absolutely palpable for the Pittsburgh Steelers during Monday’s practice, the second of training camp. Another gorgeous day of well over 80 degree temperatures, the heat mandated a slower practice pace for the players throughout most of the day.    Outside of the P.U.P. list and…

Marczi 2015 Pre-Training Camp 53 Man Roster Prediction

We’re cutting it close here with training camp set to start later today—or at least the check-in and run test portion of training camp, which is fairly anticlimactic, but as Dave and Alex did over the course of the previous two days, I’ve also decided to take a stab at…

Preseason Expectations: Outside Linebacker

Five games. 18 practices. That’s the allotted time the 2015 Pittsburgh Steelers will have to prove themselves before playing in a meaningful game. The preseason is unique in the sense that it’s the only time when the scoreboard doesn’t matter. 0-5, 5-0, it really isn’t going to matter. It’s the…
