Sammie Coates Says He’s Still Working On Getting His Speed Back

Though there’s been some negativity coming out on Sammie Coates during the spring, he has a couple good excuses. Last season was a trying one for him on the injury front. A busted hand. A groin injury. Even wisdom teeth that needed to be removed. It’s fair to assume Coates...

Think about the turning point for the Pittsburgh Steelers last year and most will point to right after the Dallas Cowboys game. On paper, reading the schedule, it’s true.
