Steelers roster ranks in the bottom half of the NFL, per ESPN

Photo by Justin Casterline/ The Pittsburgh Steelers roster is rather unproven, and their ranking among the NFL would explain just that. The 2022 Pittsburgh Steelers are an unknown commodity at this point in the offseason. There is plenty of potential up and down their roster, but it is a far cry from being the known commodity fans have grown accustomed to the past decade. A lot of the uncertainty hinges on the fact no one knows what to expect with the offense without Ben Roethlisberger on the roster. Not only is the production an unknown, but so is the next quarterback....

2023 Mock Draft: Steelers use 6th overall pick to select a CB

2023 Mock Draft: Steelers use 6th overall pick to select a CB

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via In the latest 2023 NFL Mock Draft, the Steelers, who possess the 6th overall pick, use it on a Georgia cornerback. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team in the midst of transition, in many ways. The Ben Roethlisberger era is officially over, and so are the eras of both Kevin Colbert and Keith Butler. There is a massive amount of change going on within the Steelers organization, and it is something which is concerning to many. Some might believe it is too soon to talk 2023 NFL Draft, but not the fine folks at ESPN. In fact, in...
Who is the most athletic player in Steelers history?

Who is the most athletic player in Steelers history?

Photo by George Gojkovich/ In my opinion, Steelers legendary cornerback Mel Blount is the greatest pure athlete in team history. Number two on that list is another legendary corner. Welcome to the dog days of the summer offseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Consider this as the perfect time for cookouts and family vacations, because it is the calm before the six month storm that is the NFL season, even longer for the playoff participants. Noteworthy news is in high demand, but in short supply, during this portion of the offseason. Some Steelers faithful checkout for...
Updating the Steelers’ salary cap situation after reports of Larry Ogunjobi’s contract

Updating the Steelers’ salary cap situation after reports of Larry Ogunjobi’s contract

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ The exact details still have some questions to be answered, but it appears as if the cap hit for 2022 is known. The Pittsburgh Steelers have filled up their 90-man offseason roster heading into the 2022 NFL season. While there still could be some significant swapping of players, there is always the chance something else changes things whether large or small. As reports come in of these deals well before they are official, even after pen is put to paper it can sometimes take some time to know the exact financials within the contract. Relying...

ESPN tabs Connor Heyward as the Steelers standout during minicamp

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Steelers have been out of minicamp for a few weeks, but ESPN picked a standout during the three days of workouts. Every time an NFL team takes the field, regardless of the setting, media are watching for players who stand out in some way. At ESPN, they recently posted an article stating a surprise standout for all 32 NFL teams. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, the player who was recognized might not be one you would have picked out of the current 90-man offseason roster. In fact, it was one of the seven rookies from the 2022 NFL Draft...
The case of the Steelers green dot likely won’t be settled anytime soon

The case of the Steelers green dot likely won’t be settled anytime soon

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers defense needs a communicator, and no one knows who it will be in 2022. For those who might not pay close attention to the details of the NFL, there are green dots on the back of certain players’ helmets. These dots signify they have a communication device inside them for coaches to communicate with the on-field player. On offense, the green dot is always given to the quarterback. The offensive coordinator, or head coach, will relay the play to the quarterback who then tells the team in the huddle. The...
2022 is shaping up as the Steelers most fascinating season in years

2022 is shaping up as the Steelers most fascinating season in years

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports There is a ton of excitement and anxiety surrounding the 2022 Pittsburgh Steelers, and rightfully so. The title of this article suggests the Steelers upcoming season will be their most fascinating in years. The key term there is “fascinating,” and it’s one I did not arrive at lightly. I went back and forth on which adjective to apply for a good ten minutes before making a decision. I used, at various times, words like “compelling,” “exciting,” and “interesting,” even Googling synonyms that properly conveyed my...

As expected, Steelers fans see a wide range of success/failure for the 2022 Steelers

Photo by Justin Casterline/ The Pittsburgh Steelers could be really good, or really bad in 2022. Which will it be? No one knows... When it comes to the 2022 Pittsburgh Steelers, not many have any concrete answers regarding the outcome of the upcoming season. What used to be easy, now is filled with question marks. What will life without Ben Roethlisberger look like? Will Omar Khan change the organizational philosophy as the General Manager (GM)? What will the defense look like with Teryl Austin at the helm? How will Brian Flores impact the defense? With the players in...

Hearing for Deshaun Watson set for Tuesday, open-ended suspension an option

Hearing for Deshaun Watson set for Tuesday, open-ended suspension an option

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports The Cleveland Browns could find out the fate of their franchise quarterback as early as next week. The Pittsburgh Steelers, and the rest of the AFC North, are watching the proceedings from the NFL and Deshaun Watson closely. Coming off the news of 20 of the 24 civil cases filed against Watson have been settled, some thought this would mean a shortened sentence for the former Houston Texans quarterback. But not so fast. It was reported Saturday the NFL is going to begin their disciplinary hearing for Watson this upcoming Tuesday, and the league...
If he played today, would you want the Steelers to give Yancey Thigpen a big contract?

If he played today, would you want the Steelers to give Yancey Thigpen a big contract?

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ How would Steelers fans view the value of the 21st version of Yancey Thigpen? Would they want the Steelers to let him walk in free agency, or would they consider him to be just as valuable as Hines Ward and Antonio Brown? I don’t know if you remember the 1990s, or were even alive to experience them, but the Steelers just didn’t keep their own free-agent superstars back then. That’s right, even though free agency was in its infancy during the ‘90s, many NFL owners quickly learned that spending, and spending a lot, was a good way to win...
Is offensive tackle still a position of concern for the Steelers?

Is offensive tackle still a position of concern for the Steelers?

Dan Moore allowed 7.5 sacks in his first season. | Kareem Elgazzar/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK Pittsburgh Steelers could really do with adding to the offensive tackle position with a veteran starter to bring leadership to the line and offense. Last season the biggest concern about the Pittsburgh Steelers offense, amongst many others, was the offensive line. In the 2022 offseason the Steelers have tried to address those concerns by signing free agents James Daniels and Mason Cole, as well as re-signing Chuks Okorafor. But have they done enough? Personally, I am...

Despite having odds stacked against him, Mark Robinson living the dream with the Steelers

Despite having odds stacked against him, Mark Robinson living the dream with the Steelers

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers’ 7th Round draft pick isn’t about to let his dream job get away from him. When you consider the path Mark Robinson took to the NFL, it is rather unfathomable. We’ve all heard the stories about Robinson, a former running back, joined Ole Miss as a scout team defender to eventually be a leading tackler on the SEC team his senior year. He turned that performance into a shot with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who drafted him in the 7th Round of the 2022 NFL Draft. 7th Round picks are often viewed as long shots to...
The Steelers’ secondary might be unconventional by common theory

The Steelers’ secondary might be unconventional by common theory

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Fans of the Steelers are wondering what the team’s plan at cornerback is, and the plan might just be some out of the box thinking. Among the list of positions Pittsburgh Steelers fans are still concerned about, the cornerback position would absolutely be near the top. The biggest concern of the group is how no one is deemed to be the “CB1” on the roster. Others would go as far to suggest the team has a bunch of CB2s, and they need a top tier player on the outside. But what if the Steelers’ plan under Teryl Austin isn’t your...

Steelers Post-Draft Roster Review, Part 8: Inside Linebackers

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The NFL Draft is over and the Steelers have added many new faces to the roster. In this series, we’ll take a look at each position and what you need to know as the offseason rolls on. In Part Eight, we’ll break down the Inside Linebackers. The Steelers face uncertainty at a position that historically has been a strength of the team. That position is Inside Linebacker (ILB).

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Now that all of the Steelers 2022 draft class is under contract, one known expense has now been accounted for. The Pittsburgh Steelers have filled up their 90-man offseason roster heading into the 2022 NFL season.

After signing Ogunjobi, the Steelers will have some tough decisions on the DLine

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers added Larry Ogunjobi, and it adds to an already defensive line room. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team who had several holes to fill this offseason. Under Kevin Colbert’s guidance the team navigated the offseason with expert precision. Signings like Mitch Trubisky, James Daniels, Mason Cole and Levi Wallace gave the team a flexibility, and experience, they didn’t have after the 2021 regular season. The moves didn’t end there when Omar Khan took over for Colbert as the team’s General Manager (GM). Khan...
