McLendon makes smooth adjustment from nose tackle to end

PITTSBURGH (AP) Steve McLendon certainly looks like a nose tackle as he stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 320 pounds. Yet those looks are deceiving. Turns out, McLendon can run, quite agile for a big man. In fact, the Pittsburgh Steeler filled in well at end last Sunday for injured Stephon Tuitt in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. ''He killed it,'' Tuitt said of McLendon. ''It was awesome...

Steelers Film Room: Steve McLendon Vs Ravens

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon had his worst game of the season against the Baltimore Ravens—and no, it wasn’t indicative of Justin Forsett’s 150-yard performance—so perhaps it’s a bit unfair for this to be my first breakdown for him of the season.
