Remember former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver C.J. Goodwin? Well, he’s finally landed with another team as it was announced on Tuesday that he was signed to the practice squad of the Atlanta Falcons. Goodwin, who signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in June 2014 after Hall of…

Steelers Film Room: Antwon Blake

Speaking strictly as a football player, there are few players I respect more than Antwon Blake. Coming out of UTEP, not one NFL team thought highly enough of the diminutive corner to risk a draft choice on him, as Blake was signed by Jacksonville as a free agent. They said…

Steelers Defensive Changes Rooted In NFL History

In only three preseason games, Keith Butler has put a distinctive stamp on this Pittsburgh Steelers defense. A much more noticeable degree than anyone, myself included, anticipated.

C.J. Goodwin Could Be Steelers’ Biggest Sleeper

He may be the most mysterious player on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster. A player who bounced around two Division Two schools. One who had just eleven catches his senior year. One reception in training camp, limited by a shoulder injury. Whose claim onto the roster was in part, due to…
