Future still looks bright for 33 year old Roethlisberger and the Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger just turned 33 years old. Even though he's approaching the latter portion of his career with the Steelers, the way he's now mastered Todd Haley's offense and with the horses he has to run it, the remaining years of Roethlisberger's time in Pittsburgh may be as fruitful as the earlier years. Ben Roethlisberger's birthday is today, and he turns 33 years old. In our current society, where age is scrutinized and aging is dreaded like one dreads going to the dentist, some might look at a 33 year old quarterback and ask, "How many years does he have left to perform at an elite...

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome doesn't seem concerned with secondary for 2015 season

Newsome is optimistic about the defensive back group for next season. The Ravens defensive backs were a popular punching bag throughout this past season. In mid-season games against the Steelers, Saints and Chargers, the Ravens allowed a ton of passing yards and came away 1-2 in those outings. Surrendering six touchdowns to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was the moment outing for the group, though the Ravens were able to avenge that loss in the postseason. Of course, in the AFC Divisional Round, the Ravens lost to the Patriots, with the secondary unable to stop Tom Brady from...

Bengals meet with Bud Dupree at NFL Scouting Combine

The Bengals could be eying the Kentucky Wildcats pass-rusher in this year's NFL Draft. The Bengals need to upgrade their pass rush after it fell off a cliff in 2014. After the defense registered 43 sacks in 2013, that number plummeted to 20 in 2014. That's not going to cut it, especially in a division with Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisberger, not to mention Peyton Manning, Russell Wilson and Philip Rivers being on the 2015 schedule as well. That's where Kentucky's Bud Dupree could come in. One of the top pass-rushers in this year's draft, Dupree recorded 21.5 sacks over the past three...

2015 NFL Combine: Steelers like what they're seeing from Penn State TE Jesse James

The Steelers might be making tight end a priority for the 2015 draft. One of their potential targets could be a local tight end that became the all-time leader for touchdown receptions at Penn State, Jesse James. The Pittsburgh Steelers are entering their eleventh season with Heath Miller.  At the age of 32, Miller's been a reliable piece for the offense and Ben Roethlisberger as the team's leading tight end.  There's a great case to make for Miller being the franchise's best tight end ever, a case well made by BTSC's Jack Finn last summer.  Still, with Miller's age, one of the many...

Steelers 2015 depth chart: Quarterbacks won't likely change in free agency

The Pittsburgh Steelers hit free agency hard last year, bringing in a handful of veteran players to earn starting roles and improve depth. Here is a position-by-position look at the Steelers depth chart going into this year's March 10 start of free agency.

Landry Jones nearing end of leash

The young signal caller was drafted to be the heir-apparent to Ben Roethlisberger, but his career in Pittsburgh has yet to take off. Steelers QB Landry Jones was supposed to inject some youth into the quarterback position. Although Ben Roethlisberger is one of the elite quarterbacks in the league, he's missed at least one game in every season prior to 2013. His backups included an effectivebut aging Charlie Batch and the steady but oft-injured Byron Leftwich. So, in the fourth round of the 2013 Draft, Pittsburgh scooped up the Oklahoma standout Landry Jones with the hope he could serve as a...
