Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer was scheduled to earn $1.323 million in 2013 had he been on week one roster, but being as he was waived during the final round of cuts, that one-year restricted tender did not have to be paid.
Dwyer of course was re-signed on Monday after the Steelers lost LaRod Stephens-Howling for the season to a knee injury suffered in the season opening loss to the Tennessee Titans and his new one-year deal is a non guaranteed $630,000 contract, which is the league minimum for his amount of accrued seasons.
RB Dwyer returns to #Steelers a relative bargain. He signed RFA for $1.3 M, but was cut Aug. 31,re- signed Mon & now has salary of $630,000

Dwyer did not receive a signing bonus and the Steelers will suffer no salary cap consequences should they have to waive him again later in the year.
For now, Dwyer is listed as the last running back on the Steelers depth chart, but that could certainly ch...

AROUND THE WEB
For the last two seasons, the general knock on the Steelers was that their defense was perhaps too old to remain competitive. They went on to field the number one defense in each of the last two seasons. So much for being too old. But big names such as Farrier, Hampton, Harrison, Foote, and Smith are now absent from that defense. They’ll still give up some big plays...
The Pittsburgh Steelers offense looked lousy in the season opener. The offensive side of the ball during the offseason was surrounded by various questions and concerns. Those questions and concerns have now followed the team into the regular season. The Steelers were surprised at home by the Tennessee Titans, the Steelers lost 16-9.
Is the Steelers offense doomed to have a terrible...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have released their second depth chart of the 2013 season and it includes some notable changes.

We reported on Wednesday that Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones has been listed a co-starter along with Jason Worilds.
Jones told the media that he’s been running with the starting defense in practice this week.
“That’s the way it is right now,” Jones said on Wednesday, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “As long as I continue to keep doing what I’m doing, I hope...
As most of you know, the Pittsburgh Steelers don’t discuss contracts during the season. With that in mind, Emmanuel Sanders will become a free agent at the end of this season since there was not extension granted to him. This doesn’t mean he won’t be a Steeler next year, but the likelihood is very slim.
Unfortunately for Sanders, the opener was not the kind of debut he was...
Kelvin Beachum beat the odds to make the Pittsburgh Steelers a year ago, going from seventh-round draft pick to starting right tackle by the end of the season.
Beachum finds himself facing an even more daunting task this fall: replacing Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey. Beachum will start in place of Pouncey on Monday night when the Steelers travel to Cincinnati. Pouncey will have...
Isaac Redman was named the starting running back today by Mike Tomlin. Redman had a rough week last week, he fumbled twice and picked up eight yards on nine carries before getting benched. “Obviously he played a bad game,” Tomlin said Tuesday. “He’ll be given an opportunity to redeem himself.” With LaRod Stephens-Howling (knee) out […]
Several Steelers’ beat writers tweeted out today that Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was not at practice today. He was excused due ‘personal reasons’ but I think there is much more to this story.
I have this boiled down to a few reasons why the 10th-year QB would miss practice coming off such an embarrassing loss. See if you’re on board with me here...

In weeks with multiple sacks allowed by the Pittsburgh Steelers, I’ll be breaking down each individual one, assigning blame, and keeping track of a “sack counter” for the guilty parties. And this week, with five allowed against the Tennessee Titans, was worthy of an article dedicated to it.
Buckle up, this one is a bumpy ride.
