Which Steelers Have the Best/Worst Contracts?

Best: Cameron Heyward View image | gettyimages.com Cameron Heyward has been paid next to nothing for his services the past few season.  The Steelers exercised the 5th year option on Heyward, which bumps his salary up for this season to 6.9 million, which is a pretty high number, but is still not bad for the Steelers best defensive lineman. I am judging this contract...

Steelers Low-Ball Three Potential Free Agent Corners

The Pittsburgh Steelers, in desperate need for help in the secondary, had two cornerbacks visit last week and both left after being offered “below market value” contracts I’ve been told. Perhaps more alarming was that they were also told they were likely looking at playing in the slot. Patrick Robinson and Sterling Moore both visited the Steel City knowing the Steelers need...

Pittsburgh Steelers Top Priorities Ahead of Tuesday’s FA Opener

Negotiate a Long Term Deal With Jason Worilds View image | gettyimages.com Some Steelers fans may fight me on this one, and while I understand their perspective, I find it detrimental for the Steelers to lose their second best pass rusher and their best outside linebacker, in spite of what we have at the position.  Sure, it’d be excellent if we could bring back Arthur...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2015 NFL Off-Season Preview

Positions of Need Cornerback Ike Taylor is done, as a free agent going into his age 35 season, after struggling in 2013 (98th out of 110 eligible cornerbacks) and missing 11 games with injury in 2014. They gave Cortez Allen a long-term contract in the off-season, but he struggled mightily before being benched and could be cut after just one year, a move that would save them 1.58...

Steelers should target Byron Maxwell in free agency

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers have many needs on defense as they enter free agency and the draft, and one position in particular is cornerback. The Steelers will likely select a pass rusher and corner in May’s NFL draft, but they should also target a proven defensive back in free agency. With Ike Taylor, 34, set to become an unrestricted free agent in...

Steelers 2015 Offseason Priorities – Rebuilding Cortez Allen

The 2014 season saw the Pittsburgh Steelers on the rise, finishing with an 11-5 record and a division title following two straight seasons of missing the playoffs with 8-8 records. They finished off the regular season with four straight victories, but suffered a disappointing Wildcard round loss against the Ravens without their star running back.

Steelers Decision With Cortez Allen is More Than Just Money

If Steelers’ beleaguered cornerback Cortez Allen is still on the roster as of June 1st, he receives a $3 million roster bonus. Will the team want to pay him that much for being a likely back-up and special teams player? If they cut him prior to June 1st, they can save some money. His dead money would be less than $2 million this year and would be just over $4 million in 2016. With...

Steelers 2014 Player Exit Meetings – CB Cortez Allen

Free Agent Corners Offer Steelers Little in Way of Starters

The Pittsburgh Steelers need to be better in the secondary and more specifically in this writing, at cornerback. First, we can expect that Ike Taylor will be gone. I see no reason to bring him back in any way, shape or form. As for Cortez Allen, it’s anyone’s guess as to what he will look like heading into the 2015 season. His ball skills and tackling were both sub-par but if...

What Can We Expect From Steelers CB Cortez Allen In 2015?

During the 2013 season, Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen flashed some serious potential, and somewhat alleviated any wonder as to whether the franchise chose the wrong player to let walk out the door, when promising cornerback Keenan Lewis signed with New Orleans Saints. A long and rangy corner in the Dick LeBeau mold, at 6-foot-1 […] What Can We Expect From Steelers...

Why the Steelers Need to Draft a CB

When it comes to the Steelers defense, there are a few things that all Pittsburgh fans can agree on. On of the most obvious is that the secondary was easily one of the weakest units all season long. They allowed the fourth-most passing touchdowns in the league and the second-most pass plays over 40 yards. As a whole, the Pittsburgh defense finished the season with only 11 interceptions...
