The starting fullback for the Pittsburgh Steelers is relatively unknown, as is his agent, which makes the success for both individuals a compelling story. Steelers FB Will Johnson won the starting role when David Johnson (they are not related) went down with a season-ending injury. Will Johnson was the only fullback left on the Steelers roster and became the de facto starter. This was a big victory for the former West Virginia Mountaineer who did not even have the clout to get his own locker when he played in Morgantown.
Johnson was not selected in the NFL Draft and signed a free agent contract with the Steelers in March of this year. His agent is Joe Tyler, a San Diego, California-based Agent Advisor with Sports Management WorldWide (SMWW). Tyler represents over 15 athletes, most of them being basketball players performing overseas. He has been with SMWW, (the company run by Dr. Lynn Lashbrook) since August 2009.
Tyler did not stop pounding the pavement after all 32 NFL ...

I think we all realize that the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense is better with James Harrison on the field than off. You could certainly argue even at 75% Harrison would be a better option than either Chris Carter or Jason Worilds. The problem really doesn’t revolve around that though because what it deals with is simply getting Harrison on the field period.
I found myself at one...
We told you on Tuesday that Wednesday would be a key day for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, and it appears that all might not have gone well today.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports via Twitter that Harrison left the Steelers facility in street clothes before practice on Wednesday. As Bouchette adds, that is not a good sign.
When Weslye Saunders was handed his fine it was stated as a four week suspension for a positive drug test. Following the positive test the general consensus was that Saunders would be available following week 4 and would only miss 3 games due to the bye week for the Steelers in week 4. The NFL has n ContinueThe post Steelers’ Saunders to Return after Week 5 appeared first on SteelBlitz.
A report on ESPN broke the news Wednesday that the NFL has fined Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy $21,000 for his hit on Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.This fine is monetarily on par with fines levied this season on players for player safety related hits, and should not have come as a surprise to either the fans or Mundy. While not penalized on the play...
After the debacle that was the Steelers loss to the Raiders on Sunday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, there is plenty of blame to go around across the entire team. As Mike Tomlin would say, you win as a team and you lose as a team. No one person causes a loss any more than one person can win a game.
For the Steelers defense though, there are many questions as they head into their...
Through three weeks of the NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have seen lofty expectations shattered, but even loftier expectations start to come to fruition. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is playing at a level that puts him atop the NFL’s list of passers.
Now, I’m of the school of thought that says that it’s never too early to make predictions and end up eating...
Troy Polamalu and James Harrison returned to practice Tuesday and participated fully. Optimism was high Tuesday night and Wednesday morning that both players would be back soon. That idea was destroyed Wednesday afternoon when Harrison left the Steelers facility before practice had even started due ContinueThe post James Harrison Return Still Unknown appeared first on SteelBlitz.
STANDOFF IN STEEL CITY?
After originally saying that he and Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley had "one little incident," Ben Roethlisberger later said the issue was blown out of proportion.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Weslye Saunders will not be available for the week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The former undrafted free agent posted Thursday on Twitter that he still has to sit out one more game to satisfy his four game suspension for testing positive for the banned drug Adderall.
Were you hanging out on Twitter today? If so, you may have seen the panic that was caused over Pittsburgh Steelers QB, Ben Roethlisberger. Ya see, a bunch of fans, and main stream media, were thrown into a frenzy about a report claiming that Big Ben had broken his leg in an automobile accident. This [...]
Below are the defensive player play counts and participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Nose tackle Casey Hampton played 27 snaps as opposed to just 3 for Steve McLendon. I am still finding this a little confusing. Cameron Heyward also saw just 5 defensive snaps Sunday. Both Al Woods and Will Allen saw 1 snap each...
The play of Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer this past weekend can not be understated, but the defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers certainly helped the veteran quarterback out by declaring what they were going to do several times during the game pre snap.
You are likely reading quite a bit today about how "predictable" the defense was on Sunday, but most of the...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy was fined $21,000 for his hit on Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey last Sunday, a league source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Heyward-Bey was released from the hospital on Monday, a day after being knocked out by Mundy's helmet-to-helmet hit, and is expected to make a full recovery.
Heyward-Bey suffered a concussion and...
