Vance McDonald’s future with the Steelers anything but certain next year

Vance McDonald’s future with the Steelers anything but certain next year

The dynamic but oft-injured tight end might be too rich for the Steelers’ blood. When the Pittsburgh Steelers made the trade for tight end Vance McDonald with the San Francisco 49ers, it was viewed as a low-risk transaction. McDonald had a reputation for dropping passes and being inconsistent overall. When his tenure with Pittsburgh began, he certainly fit that bill, but with the additional shortcoming of being often injured. The 2017 season is over, and now the team has a different scenario on their hands. When healthy, McDonald provided a dynamic threat who was extremely reliable and...

Steelers News: This isn’t just Joe Haden’s first rodeo in the postseason

Steelers News: This isn’t just Joe Haden’s first rodeo in the postseason

While Steelers fans are excited to watch Joe Haden play his first postseason game, he isn’t the only one in that same situation. The Pittsburgh Steelers picked up Joe Haden, and he went from worst-to-first in almost seconds. All season fans have been anxious to see Haden play in his first postseason action, but he isn’t the first non-rookie now preparing for their first trip to the postseason. Free agent acquisitions Tyson Alualu and Vance McDonald are also in the same position as Haden, but due to Haden’s status in the league for the majority of the season, he is the one who is...

Steelers vs. Texans: 5 Winners and 1 Loser in the Steelers’ win over Houston

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 12-3 and it’s time to see who played well and who left much to be desired. After each game, there are some players who impress and others who disappoint.

Mike Tomlin: It Was ‘Fun Getting Vance McDonald Involved’ As TE Plays Start To Finish For First Time In Months

The last time that Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald both started and finished a game?

Steelers Injury Report: More good news for the Steelers as they prepare for the Texans

Steelers Injury Report: More good news for the Steelers as they prepare for the Texans

The Pittsburgh Steelers leave their second day of practice with more good news as they prepare for the Texans in Week 16. The Pittsburgh Steelers have to be counting down the days until their next game to get the bad taste of losing out of their mouths. If the team is half as bitter as the fan base currently is, things could get ugly in Houston on Christmas Day. Nonetheless, the Steelers received some good news on the injury front heading into Week 16, and I should say more good news with the team already getting both Vance McDonald and Joe Haden back on Thursday. Friday saw another starter...
