With the recent departures of Rippy and the Davis twins, the football team was under 85 scholarships. They wasted no time when they rewarded 5th year senior Desmond Brown with one. Needless to say, Brown was a happy camper and his teammates didn’t hesitate to congratulate him. S/0 everybody showing me love right now!Y’all my motivation esp my teammates.,I do this for us!Now Lets go win this Acc championship! #H2P — Desmond Brown (@Des_brown30) May 14, 2013 This is great news for Desmond, the younger brother of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown. Desmond took advantage of Rushel Shell’s departure and was easily the second best back in the Spring Game. There’s no sense in wasting an open scholarship and Desmond is certainly a player who deserves it. It’s also advantageous that he’s a senior so there’s no pressure to keep him on scholarship next season. Still, it’s a great honor to be 1 of 85 players on a team to earn a scholarship. Send some praise to Desmond on twitter for his accomplishment!

5 Pittsburgh Steelers Who Will be Under the Knife During Training Camp

Reggie Dunn Unlikely to Make Steelers Final 53- Man Roster, Unless…

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed fifteen undrafted rookie free agents following the 2013 NFL Draft, but one of them is a but more intriguing than the rest. His name is Reggie Dunn and if you are an avid Steelers’ fan you have probably already heard all about him. He played wide receiver at Utah and during his college career he played three seasons for the Utes and totaled 31 receptions...

Steelers’ Butler Needs His Opportunity

I am going to do something that will more than likely get me in trouble with the Yinzers but I just have to say it. No, I’m not going to bash the running game but this is right there I suppose. I’m suggesting that the Pittsburgh Steelers need to give linebackers’ coach Keith Butler the opportunity to run the Steelers’ defense. Yes I know exactly what that means. It means...

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert Says LB Sean Spence Showing Small Signs Of Progress

During his Tuesday conference call with season ticket holders, Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was asked about the health status of inside linebacker Sean Spence, who is still recovering from tearing up his left knee last preseason in the game against the Carolina Panthers. “Sean is progressing," said Colbert. "When you have as serious a knee injury...

Steelers Waive NT Anthony Rashad White From Injured Reserve List

A week ago we reported that former Michigan State nose tackle Anthony Rashad White reverted back to the Pittsburgh Steelers injured reserve list following him clearing waivers after being waived injured on May 6.

Steelers likely won’t re-sign Casey Hampton

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette doesn’t believe the Steelers would be interested in resigning free agent nose tackle Casey Hampton even if he’s not ready to retire yet. Hampton will be turning 36 years-old in early September, it doesn’t make sense for the Steelers to bring him back.  It’s time to reload and move on.  They’ll be just fine without him.   Need...

Steelers CB DeMarcus Van **** Has Make-Or-Break Training Camp Ahead Of Him

On Monday, we took a look at cornerback Josh Victorian, who will be battling to make the Pittsburgh Steelers 53 man roster out of training camp this year and today we will look at cornerback DeMarcus Van ****, who figures to be competing against Victorian for that same roster spot. Van ****, who was drafted in the third round of the 2011 draft by the Oakland Raiders, did not arrive...

Steelers could have selected the best quarterback in the draft

Landry Jones could be this years draft steal. In the past few years Big Ben has been rattled by injuries that left quartebacks Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich coming in to take over. With that being said the four year starter at Oklahoma fell into a wonderful spot. Landry will compete with Byron Leftwich for the back up spot. I believe that Landry will shine in camp and if an injury...

Clark Should Take a Page From Ike Taylor

It’s no secret that I have major issues with the way Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Ryan Clark does things to promote his post-football career. From calling out opposing players to saying things about his own teammates, Clark is clearly focused on the next phase of his life rather than his current one. Perhaps Clark should take a look at another guy in the very same defensive backfield...

None of those players are Steelers’ draft picks, however, because the team is waiting for cap room to open up before signing...
