The Pittsburgh Steelers are up against the salary cap again this offseason and they will have to make a lot of tough roster decisions. Last offseason, the team cut ties with veterans Hines Ward, Aaron Smith, James Farrior, Bryant McFadden and others in order to get under the cap. This time around the Steelers are looking at the possibility of losing six starters from week one of last season to free agency and they may cut two or three more.
Max Starks OT, Ramon Foster G, Mike Wallace WR, Keenan Lewis, Larry Foote ILB and Casey Hampton NT are unrestricted free agents with James Harrison OLB, Brett Kiesel DE and Willie Colon G as candidates to be released. Realistically the Steelers will probably not lose every single one of these players and I believe Foster, Lewis, Foote and Keisel have the best chances to be retained. Until contracts are reached nothing is certain however and we will all have to wait and see how the Steelers handle free agency.
If Starks and Foster are allowed to l...

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel shaved his beard for charity on Thursday in front of a packed house at Jergel's Rythm Grille. Keisel, who's been growing the beard since the beginning of
It's time to start looking at the positions that the Pittsburgh Steelers will look to draft in April. I like to start with a very broad scope, so if certain players surge leading up to the draft, I'm prepared. It is also a good idea to get a feel for a player before the combine, so you can tell if players are rated high just based on one weekend of workouts...
Remember 2005 and 2006?
More people were using MySpace than Facebook, banks didn’t need bailouts and Bill Cowher was still the Pittsburgh Steelers coach.
The 2005 and 2006 NFL drafts were the Steelers’ last two under Cowher, and they continued to stock their roster with players who would contribute to Super Bowl teams.
Three months after winning Super Bowl XL, the Steelers drafted...
BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is a player that several people have the Pittsburgh Steelers taking in the first round of the 2013 draft in their mock drafts. In fact, ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper even has him as the Steelers first round selection in his latest 2.0 mock draft.
Ansah, who only started playing football in 2010, is already 23 years old according to Kiper, and while...
It was reported early on Friday that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver coach Scottie Montgomery has decided to return to Duke University to become their new offensive coordinator and immediately a good portion of the black and gold fanbase started suggesting that former wide receiver Hines Ward should be hired to replace him.
Yeah, that's not going to happen.
Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel hosted his third annual "Shear Da Beard" event Thursday night at Jergel's Rhythm Grille. The annual event once again benefited the cancer programs at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh at UPMC and was sold out way in advance.
As always, several family members, Steelers players, coaches, and even Dan Rooney, each took...
Now that the Super Bowl is behind us we can expect that the Pittsburgh Steelers will begin ramping up their offseason business transactions.
Currently the team has 51 players under contract for 2013. That number will need to grow to 90 by the time training camp rolls around. 7 or 8 of those players will be draft picks and a good 10 to 15 more will likely be undrafted free agents...
The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently looking for a new wide receivers coach after it was announced on Friday that Scottie Montgomery was leaving to become the new offensive coordinator at Duke University, his alma mater.
Although we don't know who head coach Mike Tomlin will be interviewing for the open position on his staff, you would have to think that former Arizona Cardinals...
Season 3, Episode 74 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I get busy talking about the current salary cap situation of the Pittsburgh Steelers as they inch closer towards the start of the new league year. We talk about the Rule of 51, the cap credits due the Steelers in 2013 and also how the cap is expected to remain flat through the 2014 season. This talk leads...
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers are so far over the salary cap that they may end up losing every one of their free agents and they may even have to cut some veterans that aren’t willing to restructure their contracts.
The Steelers could lose every one of their free agents, and they might have to lose a few more veterans if they don’t agree to take less...
Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel probably will go down as having one of the dopest beards in all of sports let alone beard history.
Keisel has allowed his beard to grow for years, but recently cut it off to be a part of the “Sheer Da Beard” promotion to benefit the cancer programs at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh at UPMC.
Keisel spoke about why he shaved and what the...
