Found May 02, 2012 on SteelerAddicts:
A few days ago we had a post in the forums about the jersey numbers that the Steelers 2012 rookies and free agents will wear during the offseason and possibly into the 2012 season too. These are always subject to change as players get cut, and someone else tries to get their preferred number, the young guys try to get their favorite number away from a veteran before the season starts, etc.  Plus with rosters up to 90 players now there’s only so many numbers to go around per position in the offseason. A few changes that I took notice of rather quickly: -4th round draft pick Alameda Ta’amu will wear #95. Personally I’ve always been partial to 95 as a linebackers number.

Steelers Drafted Sean Spence For His Instincts, Not His Measureables

When you look at the NFL scouting combine and pro day measurables of the Pittsburgh Steelers third round draft pick Sean Spence, you might not be overly impressed. His 5 foot, 11 inch height combined with his 231 pound weight certainly has you envisioning a pretty smallish linebacker. Even Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review commented on first seeing Spence up close that...

Steelers Release RB Chad Spann & CB Antonio Smith

I had a feeling that a few corresponding roster moves might be on the way soon as the Pittsburgh Steelers roster was over 90 players after the undrafted free agents had been identified. That indeed was the case on Wednesday as Mark Kaboly reports via Twitter that running back Chad Spann and cornerback Antonio Smith have now been released. Spann was signed to the Steelers practice...

Colossal Dividends If Mike Adams Flourishes

By Jeremy Hritz It has been one week since the first day of the 2012 NFL Draft, and there is one player that has intrigued me to the point of distraction. There are no doubts surrounding the impact that David DeCastro will make in his rookie year. Players selected rounds three through seven will not be expected to start right away; they will only be expected to compete for a roster...

Mike Adams, a Steelers starter at Tackle for 2012?

The most controversial pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers on draft day since Santonio Holmes in 2006, is this years 2nd rounder Mike Adams out of Ohio State. The Steelers just simply don’t take these types of players normally, they want high character guys who are football players above all else. You could be the guaranteed best college athlete on the planet but if you don’t make...

Video: Antonio Brown’s offseason training routine

  Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown flourished during his second NFL season, forming a dangerous combo with speedster Mike Wallace. In 2011 Brown was named to his first Pro Bowl and hauled in 69 passes for 1,108 yards with 2 touchdowns. He was also equally as dangerous as kick/punt returner, becoming the first player in [...]

Steelers Draft Shows They Appear To Be Comfortable With Outside Linebacker Depth

Heading into the 2012 NFL draft it looked as if the Pittsburgh Steelers might have interest in drafting not only an inside linebacker, but an outside linebacker as well. Of their 30 allowed pre draft visitors, 4 were considered 3-4 outside linebacker prospects in the form of Nick Perry, Andre Branch, Cam Johnson and Olivier Vernon. There were also reports that the Steelers had some...

Ta’amu will play a big part in the future of the defensive line

The Steelers answered a lot of questions by the time the NFL was over this past weekend. They filled serious holes on the offensive line, got some depth at linebacker and running back, and also found themselves the next Casey Hampton. That’s some big shoes to fill no matter who you are, and not a responsibility to be taken lightly. Hampton started 148 of the 157 games he’s played...
