Wexell: Expect Sean Davis To Start Sunday

Over the course of the past couple of weeks, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been making tweaks to their secondary on the back end, largely doing so to get their rookie defensive backs more involved. First-round cornerback Artie Burns was moved into the starting lineup, while second-round safety for the past…


Ladarius Green Matt Spaeth

Reports Indicate Ladarius Green Could Practice Next Week

While it was not necessarily much of a shock, it was a bit disappointing to see the week of practice go by, ending today, and not expecting to see Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Ladarius Green take the field. Green, of course, was their big free agent acquisition, but has spent…

Roosevelt Nix Could Catch On To More Than Just A Roster Spot

When training camp opened last year, Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix really wasn’t anything, or anybody. He really wasn’t even a fullback, having signed with the team as a Reserve/Future player at inside linebacker, but moved to fullback because of the team’s depth already available there. Nix spent most of…

Alan Faneca To Join Steelers In Training Camp

It was fairly exciting news when we saw Alan Faneca show up with the Pittsburgh Steelers during OTAs, only to learn that he was actually serving as an intern assistant offensive line coach with Mike Munchak during the team’s spring drills through OTAs and minicamp. Minicamp just ended a couple…

Dri Archer’s Roster Spot Open For Returner

L.T. Walton’s Progress Could Determine The Value Of Cam Thomas

When earlier this offseason Pittsburgh Steelers defensive line coach John Mitchell explicitly name-dropped defensive end Clifton Geathers as a player that he requested that the front office re-sign, it certainly made the ears perk up. Geathers was a street free agent when the Steelers signed him with four weeks to…

Gerod Holliman Admits Favoring Injured Left Shoulder

At the risk of beating the drum one stroke too often and tearing the canvas, there is another piece to fit in place to the puzzle that is Gerod Holliman, the Louisville free safety and Jim Thorpe Award winner that the Pittsburgh Steelers selected with the 239th overall pick in…

Free Agent Pickup Cam Thomas Keeping Ahead Of His DL Competition

Remember back in April, not long after the Pittsburgh Steelers failed to sign Alex Carrington? Back then, I wrote about free agent signing Cam Thomas and speculated that he could be a contingency plan to start at defensive end, if the Steelers weren’t able to find an alternative answer on…
