Remaining Tight Ends the Steelers Could Target in Free Agency

Remaining Tight Ends the Steelers Could Target in Free Agency

Three weeks into free agency, BTSC continues to look at the best players still available at each position. Meet the best of the rest of the men at tight end. The position of tight end can go either way for the Pittsburgh Steelers. It all hinges on the head of Ladarius Green. If Green rebounds from his latest concussion that occurred on December 18th in Cincy and doesn't suffer any more head trauma, the stable is quite stable. With Jesse James as a solid TE2, the blocking specialist that is David Johnson and added depth with Xavier Grimble...the state of affairs at that position would be...
The Steelers offseason moves may not be sexy, but that's okay

The Steelers offseason moves may not be sexy, but that's okay

Steeler Nation definitely wants “sexy” moves when it comes to free agency. It’s not their style. Can it continue to be okay? So far in free agency, Pittsburgh has resigned TE David Johnson and QB2 Landry Jones. Outside of their own guys, they took low-risk flyers on Buffalo WR Justin Hunter, RB Knile Davis of Kansas City, CB Coty Sensabaugh and most recently DL Tyson Alualu from Jacksonville. All positions that had issues at depth and sorely needed to be addressed. The Steelers made their fourth and fifth moves of free agency on Monday and all five aren't sexy one iota, kappa, lambda...
Why the Steelers wait-and-see approach to free agency can still be successful

Why the Steelers wait-and-see approach to free agency can still be successful

On the latest episode of the “Steelers Hangout” I explain why although frustrating, the Steelers wait-and-see approach to free agency is still successful. Yeah, I read the comments. Fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers were anything but happy with their favorite team’s activity level in NFL Free Agency. While they sat and watched teams like the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots make improvements to the team, they had to celebrate re-signing David Johnson and Landry Jones. Nonetheless, although it might have taken them a while to warm up, the Steelers are now making moves. Better...

Re-signing some more of their own might be best option for Steelers

Re-signing some more of their own might be best option for Steelers

While the free agent market has been open for a little over a week, most of the shelves have already been picked clean. The Pittsburgh Steelers allowed 12 of their own to test the waters, but only three have found new homes so far. Before the 2017 league year began, Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert made all the right noises about wanting to retain many of their own. With just Landry Jones and David Johnson re-signed so far, this might be the week the Steelers bringing back some other familiar faces from last year.

Remaining cornerback free agents the Steelers could target for 2017

BTSC continues to look at available free agents and whether or not they could be within the realm of possibility for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Here are the top remaining corners on the market. With a week into free agency, there are still many players that have not re-upped with their own team, or were lured away with an excessive amount of frog skins. The Steelers have kept two of their own (David Johnson and Landry Jones) in the fold, welcomed a new face (Justin Hunter from Buffalo ), said goodbye to a few (Lawrence Timmons to Miami, Markus Wheaton to Chicago and Jarvis Jones to Arizona)...

Help celebrate James Harrison’s new contract with the latest “Do it for Deebo” BTSC T-Shirt

James Harrison is a living legend, so after he signed his new two-year contract it only seemed right we honored him with our latest BTSC T-Shirt. So you are upset about the Pittsburgh Steelers offseason? Signing Antonio Brown to a new long-term contract, franchise tagging Le’Veon Bell and bringing back tight end David Johnson wasn’t enough? Well, you might have forgotten one transaction which could pay dividends for the black and gold, and that would be when the team gave James Harrison a new two-year contract. With the franchise’s all-time sack leader in likely his final contract of...

Salary cap implications for David Johnson's new Steelers contract

Salary cap implications for David Johnson's new Steelers contract

The opening few days of the annual NFL free agency frenzy have been characteristically quiet for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rather than making the splash some fans might have hoped for, the front office signings have been rather modest. Looking at the numbers attached to the contract extension for tight end David Johnson, shared by Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, it would appear to be a very team-friendly two-year deal indeed. Johnson will earn the league minimum for a player with his experience in 2017 and 2018 and has received a rather small signing bonus of $235,000. The contract...

Salary cap numbers for Landry Jones new Steelers contract

The Pittsburgh Steelers were among the more subdued players on the opening day of free agency Thursday, coming to terms with just two of their own. While contract details for David Johnson have not yet been released, the figures behind the deal for Landry Jones have been leaked by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. A contract that will pay the Steelers backup quarterback $4.4 million over the next two years has been split down the middle. Jones will earn a base salary of $1.9 million each season and receive a signing bonus of $600,000. For all the angst over the re-signing of Jones from many...

Should the Steelers make a run at Prince Amukamara in free agency?

Should the Steelers make a run at Prince Amukamara in free agency?

In typical Pittsburgh Steelers fashion, the team’s first day of free agency was quite uneventful. After the new league year officially began yesterday evening, the Steelers made three in-house moves: releasing Karlos Williams, and re-signing David Johnson and Landry Jones. Of course, the Steelers made inquiries on a few notable free agents. Dre Kirkpatrick and Logan Ryan headed Pittsburgh’s list of possible acquisitions, but they ultimately proved too expensive. Kirkpatrick re-signed with the Bengals on a five-year extension, and Ryan will take his services to Tennessee to play on Dick...
