Art Rooney II on Mike Wallace: “He should be here.”

The Mike Wallace ordeal has been the talk and focus of the Pittsburgh Steelers off-season thus far. From Wallace asking for outrageous money from teams interested in him as a free agent, to his walk of shame back to the ‘Burgh after no teams would pony up that kind of dough, #17 has been the talk of the town. The date to watch is June 15th, as that is the deadline for Wallace to...

Leftwich wins longest throw competition; Kirby Wilson returns

-B- The Steelers wrapped up their mini-camp today with a little bit of fun. The quarterbacks had a longest throw competition and the winner was big Byron Leftwich, who bested Troy Smith in the last round with a throw of over 70 yards. Pretty impressive.

Little talk between Steelers and Mike Wallace

Restricted free agent Mike Wallace is absent from the Steelers’ mandatory minicamp. The word “mandatory” is a little misleading because it’s only mandatory if a player is under contract, which Wallace, who has yet to sign his restricted free agent tender, is not currently, so the Steelers can’t fine him. However, they can reduce his tender value from 2.742 million to 577...

This Steelers Grave Is Highly Pittsburghish

Welp, the late Mr. James here had his life tragically cut short just shy of his 24th birthday. On the bright side, he died before having to watch the Steelers lose to the Packers in Super Bowl XLV two and a half months later. So that’s nice. Oh, and he has a giant Steelers helmet on his grave, which is hopefully something he asked for before dying. I feel like it has to be. Then...
