Collaboration On Display In Rebuilding Steelers’ Defense

A couple of months back, I speculated that, with the departure of defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau and the promotion of Keith Butler to the same position—one that he has never held before—we could expect to see the formulation of a new defense through a collaborative effort of much of the…

Swearinger, a safety prospect that the Pittsburgh Steelers had shown interest in before selecting safety Shamarko Thomas later in the draft in the fourth round. We also learned that the Steelers were among eight teams that submitted…

Remaining Free Agent Cornerbacks Not Very Appealing

As we enter the first weekend of the 2015 NFL league year, the Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to sign an outside unrestricted free agent. That’s not too surprising, however, and it could change later Friday as former Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is expected to be in town for…
