Found April 14, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
In my estimation, the Pittsburgh Steelers organization handles dealing with their free agents differently than most other teams in the NFL. They actually conduct all of their day-to-day business in a different manner. When they draft players out of college and when they pick up free agents, they only pick up players that fit the Steelers family

The Steelers Are Too Old… Again?

I think everyone can remember the madness last year when Warren Sapp implied that the Pittsburgh Steelers were too old to be considered an elite team. The Steelers did a great job of proving Sapp wrong both with the teams' overall on field performance and the way that the younger backups stepped up thru injuries. So just as the offseason passes us steadily by and we almost have...

Jonathan Dwyer To Train With Tom Shaw This Summer

While it is in no way big news, I enjoy passing along any player related tidbits this time of year. Pittsburgh Steelers third year running back Jonathan Dwyer told me via Twitter on Thursday that he will be spending the whole month of July training with the great Tom Shaw down in Orlando at the Wide World of Sports complex. So why is this news worthy? Steelers General Manager...

Steelers’ Offensive Line has Depth, Needs Starters

The Steelers brought back three offensive lineman this week in Ramon Foster, Doug Legursky and Trai Essex. All three players are back on one year deals; Foster and Legursky signed their restricted free agent tenders and Essex signed a one year deal to return to Pittsburgh. All three players played m Continue

Report: Steelers likely won’t entertain offers for Mike Wallace

With the recent rumblings that a bunch of teams are interested in trading for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette doesn’t see it happening. I agree with Bouchette, the Steelers won’t go out of their way to trade Wallace.  Even though he doesn’t plan on signing his restricted free agent tender, he’ll be playing in Pittsburgh...

Steelers Bring In BYU DT Hebron Fangupo & Wayne State CB Jeremy Jones For Pre Draft Visits

The Steelers have BYU defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo and Wayne State safety Jeremy Jones in for pre draft visits on Friday to close out the week according to a tweet by Steelers Digest. Fangupo measured in at the combine at 6011 and weighed 323 pounds. He ran the 40 in 5.18 seconds to go along with a 4.62 short shuttle time. He put up 36 reps on the bench and had a vertical jump...

Who’s primed for a contract extension for the Steelers this offseason?

The Steelers love to sign players to long term deals during training camp and preseason. Last year was one for the ages with Lamarr Woodley, Lawrence Timmons, and Troy Polamalu all inking deals close to the start of the season as well as Ike Taylor’s new contract.  Arguably 4 of the more important players on the team, no question. This offseason the team is running tight against...

Sylvester Wants a Shot at Farrior’s Vacancy

When James Farrior was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers it raised one major question: Who is the new leader of the Steelers defense? The buck linebacker has the job of calling the play and getting everyone on the field in position before the snap, not a small task for a young player. For t Continue

Steelers Ready to Shine: Jonathan Dwyer

At one point ESPN draft guru Todd McShay had Jonathan Dwyer ranked as a top 30 prospect for the 2010 NFL Draft. McShay had Dwyer rated as high as number 3 on his list of top running backs available in the draft. However, questions about Dwyers conditioning and work ethic came into focus following a Continue

93.7 The Fan – Late Shift Interview With Chris Mueller

The incomparable Chris Mueller had me on the Late Shift Show early this morning on 93.7 The Fan to talk a little Pittsburgh Steelers. Chris and I talked about the recent re-signing of Jerricho Cotchery as well as the signing of free agent tight end Leonard Pope and I gave my thoughts on both. I was then asked about a few of the needs the Steelers have in the upcoming draft and what...

NFL Notebook: Wallace leads RFA speculation

The market for restricted free agents is pretty soft, but Steelers WR Mike Wallace is the clear gem. With the deadline for RFAs to get offer sheets from other teams, the interest has been slim across the league. Plus, was a parting shot at Tim Tebow in Denver deserved?

Pittsburgh Steelers add a wide receiver

The Pittsburgh Steelers added a wide receiver to their roster on Thursday. The Steelers welcomed back veteran WR Jerricho Cotchery with a two-year deal. The free agent receiver had made visits to the St. Louis Rams as well as the Kansas City Chiefs. The addition of Cotchery to the roster now gives the Steelers a solid four receivers for the 2012 season behind Mike Wallace...

RFA market nearly irrelevant

Don’t bet on disgruntled Steelers WR Mike Wallace changing addresses via restricted free agency. It’s a reminder of how agents have very little regard for the restricted free agent market.
