According to Daniel Dudley of Trib Live Radio, while training with  West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin, Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor says he’s a special player. “Who ever gets that guy, is getting a special player,” said Taylor, Per Dudley. As of right now I believe Austin is projected by most “experts” to be a second or third round pick in April’s NFL draft.  He’s an explosive player that has some first round value in my opinion.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Latest Manti Te’o Story Now Includes The Name Of Steelers Safety Troy Polamalu

"Bizarre". That is the only word I know how to describe the whole Manti Te'o alleged fake internet girlfriend hoax story right now.

Please Don’t Ask Why the Steelers Aren’t More Active in Free Agency

We aren’t even there yet but I feel a pre-emptive strike is necessary for those fans who will inevitably say, “Why aren’t we signing player x or player z in free agency?” The free agency period for the 2013 season will not open up until March but already I’m seeing the comments about what the Steelers may do in free agency. This is exactly what they will do, very little...

Steelers Rumors: Changes Coming In Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 Needs

Have we overrated Ben Roethlisberger just a bit? In 9 seasons as a starter, he’s had a top-3 scoring defense on his side 6 times. In the 3 years he hasn’t, he’s missed the playoffs, including this year. They weren’t bad or anything this year, allowing 19.6 points per game, 6th in the NFL, including the fewest yards of any team in the NFL. The offense was more of the problem...
