Found January 06, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't participating in the NFL playoffs this season, but that didn't stop one fan from trying to gain access to the team's locker room.John Winters, 28, was arrested on Saturday after attempting to break into the Steelers' locker room at Heinz Field, according to police.Winters allegedly gained entry into the premises after breaking the lock to Gate B. Then, security guards watched as cameras showed the crazed fan using a hammer to try and break into the locker room. Bizarre, right?He was eventually busted when police officers and security guards found him in the hallway outside of the locker room. There they found a hammer and a bolt that held the doorknob together laying next to where he was standing.Winters is charged with burglary and possessing instruments of a crime.No word yet on what his motive was. Perhaps he was looking to give an ear full to Pittsburgh players for missing the playoffs at 8-8? The Steelers missed the postseason for just the second time since 2006 this year.Via WPXI.

2013 NFL Draft: Five Outside Linebackers Possibly On The Steelers Radar

By Jeremy Hritz The Pittsburgh Steelers are unquestionably in the midst of draft preparations to determine which players they will target and select come this April.

Once a strength, the Steelers Wide Receivers now a question mark?

In Need For A Lead: Steelers Need A Feature Runner in 2013

By Jeremy Hritz When you think of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the running game, the names Harris, Bettis, Foster, and Parker come to mind. When you think of running backs on the current Steelers team, the names don’t exactly conjure up images of broken tackles, big runs, and streaks of 100-yard games. Consistency was a serious issue for the 2012 Steelers across the board, but...
