Found May 04, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
As you are probably well aware of by now, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders made the ESPN rounds this week and one of those stops included him being a guest on the Dan LeBatard is Highly Questionable show. Sanders talked about his humble beginnings that included having to eat ketchup and mayonnaise sandwiches as a child. Sanders also talks about how he had a temper in high school and had to learn how to control it. I am pretty sure you will be crying yourself, or him, a river after watching this. Also, not really.

Steelers reportedly expected to sign Steve Breaston

ESPN’s John Clayton mentioned on Thursday’s NFL Live that the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to sign free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston within the next couple of weeks. The Steelers will likely sign Breaston to a veteran minimum deal.  My guess is that it will be a one-year contract. While Breaston isn’t Mike Wallace, he’s a solid weapon that can help out Pittsburgh’s...

Steelers 2013 Rookie Camp – Report Suggest LB Jarvis Jones Needs Some Girth

The first day of rookie camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers has come and gone and several members of the media are now weighing in with their thoughts after observing the Friday practice.

If Steelers’ 2013 Draft Is Any Good, We’ll Know in 2013

There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2013 draft. Jarvis Jones could make opposing quarterbacks fear the Steelers again. Le’Veon Bell could be the Steelers’ first iconic running back since Jerome Bettis. Markus Wheaton could be Mike Wallace with a brain. Shamarko Thomas could fly all over the field and make plays. That’s a lot of “could”s...

Steelers Rookie RB Le’Veon Bell “Definitely” Thinks He Has A Chance To Be The Opening Day Starter

Pittsburgh Steelers second-round draft pick Le'Veon Bell talked to the media on Friday after his first day of rookie camp and answered questions about how his day went, the offense the Steelers plan to run with him in the backfield and the likelihood of him being the Week 1 starter. As far as how his first day of practice in a Steelers jersey went, Bell, who was the second...

Samford Defensive Coordinator Bill D’Ottavio Says Rookie Steelers DE Nick Williams Has Great Upside

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Samford defensive tackle Nick Williams in the seventh and final round of the 2013 NFL draft with hopes of eventually turning him into a 3-4 defensive end. Samford defensive coordinator Bill D'Ottavio was a guest of David Todd's this past week on ESPN 970 radio and was asked to talk about his former player. D'Ottavio was first asked to...

Jarvis Jones ready to learn Steelers defense

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones wants to be a starter but understands it will take time and a lot of hard work. “I’m just going to go out here, give it everything I’ve got and try to do my best to get coached up and learn this system,” said Jones. “That’s what I control right now and that’s what I’m here for, just to get coached up, learn

Steelers Rookie LB Jarvis Jones Won’t Dare Compare Himself To Former LB James Harrison

The first day of rookie camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers appears to now be in the books and first round draft pick Jarvis Jones talked to members of the media following the practice. According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network on Twitter, Jones said that following him being drafted by the Steelers, LaMarr Woodley, Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor all called him draft night to...

Steelers Trading to Land Shamarko Thomas May Say Just as Much About Markus Wheaton

It’s closing in on a week since the Pittsburgh Steelers traded a third round pick to gain an extra fourth round pick that was used to select Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas. Gerry Dulac’s newest column for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Unusual move lands a hard-hitting safety for the Steelers) discusses how the Steelers traded away a future third round pick to bring Thomas to...

A Look At The Quarterbacks Drafted From Round Four And Later Since 1993

Ever since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL draft, the speculation has been running rampant as to what it means for starter Ben Roethlisberger. If you look back through the history of the draft, you can clearly see why Roethlisberger shouldn't be losing any sleep. Dating back to the 1993 NFL draft, there...

Mike Tomlin believes Sean Spence will play again

We recently reported that it might take a miracle for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Sean Spence to ever play football again. Head coach Mike Tomlin is more optimistic then most people.  He believes Spence will play again after suffering a serious knee injury in 2012 that caused nerve damage. “I did hear the opinion regarding Spence,” Tomlin said, according to the Steelers,...

Steelers Interest in WR Steve Breaston Doesn’t Make Much Sense At This Point

Back in February the Pittsburgh Steelers met with free agent wide receiver Steve Breaston’s agent at the NFL Scouting Combine. Adding a veteran receiver like Breaston, who is familiar with Todd Haley’s offense, made sense at the time, but now it doesn’t make quite as much sense. Heading into the off-season the Steelers number one receiver from 2012, Mike Wallace, was to be...

Pittsburgh Steelers Star Linebacker LaMarr Woodley Should be Back on Track in 2013

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley has caught a lot of flack this off-season after his second straight season that was plagued by injuries. After the season Woodley was called out by an anonymous teammate, or coach, for being out of shape and “terrible” during the 2012 season. All of this negativity around Woodley has created some incorrect opinions and...

Steelers rookies trying to get settled in NFL

Jarvis Jones doesn't expect to replace James Harrison. Landry Jones doesn't even want to talk about taking over for Ben Roethlisberger. At the moment, the Pittsburgh Steelers rookies are just trying to adjust to life in the NFL. Both players joined 39 other rookies or first-year players during an introductory minicamp on Friday, capping a whirlwind week that transformed...

Craig: Steelers Not Likely to Carry Special Teams Ace, and do We Really Want Them To?

By Jeff Craig: Jeff wrote this post in response to my post yesterday of: Would the Steelers be Willing to Carry a Special Teams Ace Next Season? I tend to agree with the opinion Jeff stats in this post, unless of course Reggie Dunn proves to be the next Devin Hester, but let us know what you think. Most of the information I have read about Reggie Dunn makes me believe him ideal...
