Found April 24, 2012 on SteelerAddicts:
Rashard Mendenhall’s lawsuit is apparently moving forward now after a judge ruled that he’s at least got a legitimate gripe against Champion for canceling his endorsement contract. As the article indicates below, the sports world and celebrities everywhere will be watching this case unfold. Should Mendenhall ultimately win this case it could definitely affect future cases where companies who endorse players find they have less ground to terminate contracts in cases like this. Whether or not you agree with the tweets that started this controversy, those in the public eye are always under a higher level of scrutiny than the rest of us. If John Q. Public tweets this thoughts to the world, nobody gives it anything more than a shake of the head and maybe a quick “is he nuts” thought. With Rashard still recovering from knee surgery this offseason, he’ll have plenty of time to plan his case with his attorneys. Win or lose though, this case will bring more press back on the Steelers for s...

Could A Trade Up In Round One Be In The Cards For The Steelers?

By Cian Fahey There are two players the Pittsburgh Steelers should consider trading up for in the upcoming draft, both on offense. Back in 2008, one year into the Mike Tomlin-era in Pittsburgh, the Steelers entered the NFL draft expected to make moves to improve their porous offensive line. Instead of spending a first round pick on tackle Duane Brown, the only offensive lineman...

2012 Steelers Mock Draft Version 5.0 – Final Version

Here we go with my final mock draft of 2012 draft for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Let me start of by disclaimering that I would be floored if I have the same success that had last year, as I picked the first three players correctly, albeit I had rounds two and three flip flopped. I may never be able to duplicate that success again as long as I live. No matter how many player rankings...

Look for the Steelers to move around in the draft over the weekend

I look for the Steelers to move around a good bit in this draft.  Kevin Colbert made known in the Steelers pre draft press conference that this is not a strong draft.  There were only 7-10 surefire picks in his mind.  There also were not many guys who could make an impact on this team.  Most of the later guys were practice squad guys. So if none of these guys really are going...

Steelers looking for depth, winners in NFL Draft

Steelers Mock Draft – Final Edition – Jeremy Hritz

By Jeremy Hritz Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin addressed the media this week about their draft preparations, and Colbert stated that they were 98% complete with their pre-draft work.

Steelers Rewind – Looking Back in Steelers History (Draft Edition Pt. 1)

By Christina Rivers If one could make alive again for other people some cobwebbed skein of old dead intrigues and breathe breath and character into dead names and stiff portraits. That is history to me! - G. M. Trevelyan It's draft week...and so, as part of our weekly series of "rewind" articles, we'll step back and look at some of the memorable moments of the...

2012 Steelers Season Prediction: Pre-Draft Edition

By Jeremy Hritz It is hard to believe that football fans still have a little over four months to agonize through before enjoying a regular season NFL game. And while Pittsburgh fans are finding some distraction in the Penguins (for better or worse), nothing can replace the void left behind by the end of the 2011 NFL season. Small indications that the season is getting near are starting...

2012 NFL draft: Pittsburgh Steelers projected picks

When draft day comes around the Pittsburgh Steelers have always flown under the radar compared to most teams. They have never been a team that drafted the big name players.

Pegging the Steelers’ first round selection; Options are few

As I wrote over the past weekend, the Pittsburgh Steelers drafts are not always the most exciting and that simply comes from being successful. Translation; you pick later in the first round. I will never claim to be Mel Kiper, Jr. although I will play him on this blog. I’m not going to pick our entire draft because frankly, we could take just about anyone at any position so I want...
