The Pittsburgh Steelers filled the 53rd spot on the roster on Saturday by claiming nose tackle Hebron Fangupo off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.
Fangupo was originally signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent this season after playing his college ball at Southern California and Brigham Young after serving a two-year Mormon mission in Philippines.
The 6'1", 323-pound nose tackle was signed to the Seahawks practice squad on September 11, 2012 after being released by the Texans prior to the start of the season. He was promoted to the Seahawks 53 man roster in Week 16, but Read more [...]

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, next season will likely be safety Troy Polamalu’s final season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Small-market teams like Pittsburgh must be particularly calculated about the contracts and investments. Safety Troy Polamalu, set to make $7.5 million next season, has rarely played since getting his extension and has slowed down. Sources said...
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace will not play in the season finale against the Cleveland Browns according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and that should not come as a big surprise.
Wallace, who has failed to practice all week because of a hip injury, will miss his first game since coming...
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace won’t play in Sunday’s season finale against the Browns because of a hip/hamstring injury.
There’s a good chance that Wallace has played his snap for the Steelers now that he’s scheduled to become a free agent once the new league year begins in March.
I can’t imagine Wallace returning to Pittsburgh next season. Even though...
Former Pittsburgh Steelers center Chuck Cherundolo passed away on Dec. 22 at the age of 96 in Lakeland, Florida due to heart failure.

free agent after the season, acknowledged that last weekend’s loss to the Cincinnati
Bengals could have been his final game with the team, reports Ralph N. Paulk of
the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
“I definitely don‘t want to go out like that,” Wallace said.
“I really want to end on a high note.
THAT'S NOT VERY NICE
I’m not really sure what the Seahawks fan thought Bowman was going to do to the sign when he handed it to him, but he couldn’t have been totally shocked that Bowman ripped it. I will say this, Bowman did just as bad of a job ripping that sign as the 49ers did playing defense on Sunday night. He’s a huge guy and he could only rip off a little corner? If you’re going...
Is James Harrison playing his final game in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform?
CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora reported Sunday that some inside the Steelers' organization do not believe the veteran outside linebacker will be back with the team in 2013.
Harrison, 34, has been a pass-rushing terror in coordinator Dick LeBeau's defense for years, but his dwindling durability...

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark wrote on Twitter that he is currently in a Pittsburgh area hospital following the 24-10 win Sunday over the Cleveland Browns.

The Steelers safety did not mentioned...
I have a lot of respect for the Rams/49ers rivalry, but the divisional rival I hate the most is the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams have never beat the Seahawks twice in the same season, but the Rams haven't lost a divisional game this season.We already know that Steven Jackson is going to have his 8th straight 1,000 yard game season. He's only 10 yards away! We also know that...

Ben Roethlisberger threw three short touchdown passes, and the Steelers avoided their first losing season in nearly a decade with a 24-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Antonio Brown, Leonard Pope and Plaxico Burress scored for the Steelers (8-8), who mustered enough energy in a meaningless game to turn away the Browns. Pittsburgh's top-ranked defense forced...
Mike Prisuta talked to Steelers leadership about what went wrong in 2012. Ryan Clark, Casey Hampton, Ben Roethlisberger and Brett Keisel responded.
It was a long, difficult road to victory.
But in the end, the 2012 Seahawks did what they do best - win.
The Seahawks fought hard from a 10-3 deficit in the first half and rallied to beat the St. Louis Rams in their final game of the regular season, 20-13. The victory was capped off by a game-winning interception from the man of the hour, Richard Sherman, as the Rams...
