Film Room: David Johnson’s Fit In Pittsburgh

We’re not going to delve quite as deep with newly re-signed H-Back David Johnson as we have with all of the other free agents brought in by Pittsburgh. You remember Johnson and his game hasn’t changed very much. Blocking fullbacks are like glaciers. Slow, certainly not evolving, and melting away…

Versatility Key To David Johnson Signing

While it may not exactly be a splash signing, and we’re still far away from even the opening of training camp, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision to sign David Johnson is an interesting one, considering it was not necessarily believed that they were still seeking help at the tight end position…

Steelers Draft Class Tasked To Bridge Special Teams Gap

Strong First Season Could Lead To Bigger Role For Roosevelt Nix

When college defensive lineman Roosevelt Nix came out for the draft in 2014, he faced an uphill battle after going undrafted, signing with the Falcons, and being converted to fullback. Unsurprisingly, he failed to make the 53-man roster, and was unsigned for the duration of the season. The Pittsburgh Steelers signed…
