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.

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!

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...
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...
Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Tuesday that the team is in “good shape” in terms of the salary cap. “Right now, we’re in good shape“, said Colbert during a 30-minute question-and-answer session with season ticket holders.
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. On Tuesday, White was waived from the injured reserve list which means that he is fully recovered from whatever injury he may have had.
White was signed as an undrafted...
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.
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...
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...
According to Josina Anderson of ESPN on Twitter, free agent tackle Max Starks is visiting with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday and she is told that he is already in the midst of taking his physical.
Starks, who played every offensive snap last season for the Pittsburgh Steelers, reportedly visited the San Diego Chargers...
Undrafted rookie free agent Reggie Dunn wasn't a full-time starter in college but he comes to the Steelers with electrifying speed. Sound familiar?
Pats work out LB Brandon Johnson--ESPN Boston: Prior to signing a pair of offensive linemen on Monday to bring their roster total to 89 players, the Patriots worked out veteran linebacker Brandon Johnson, according to a league source. Johnson, 30, spent the 2012 season with the Steelers, recording 10 tackles in 14 games played.
On Monday, the Arizona Cardinals released quarterback Brian Hoyer just a little over two months after they tendered him at a second round level prior to the start of free agency.
Hoyer, who was with Pittsburgh Steelers last season for just a short period time while quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich recovered from their injuries, was claimed by the Cardinals following...
