Could Steelers be pushing Troy Polamalu towards retirement?

The Pittsburgh Steelers may not want to cut safety Troy Polamalu out of respect; however, the team could actually force the safety towards retirement by not releasing him. If Polamalu isn't in the team's plans, releasing him far into the offseason limits his chances of landing somewhere as other team's salary caps start to dry up. It's the reason for the mad dash for cash at the...

Daniel McCullers Has Chance To Expand Role In 2015

Over the course of the past few days, I felt that I was due to write something about Daniel McCullers, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ sixth-round compensatory draft selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. McCullers is a man large enough to garner the nickname “Shade Tree”, and was aptly described as “an obstruction” and “a size prospect” […] Daniel McCullers Has Chance To Expand...

Mike Tomlin: The Pittsburgh Steelers expect to be NFL’s No. 1 offense

The Steelers have long been known for their defense, but times are changing. These aren’t your father’s Steelers. With guys like Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger, these Steelers are set to be an offensive juggernaut, and that’s exactly what coach Mike Tomlin expects. “My expectation is they’re capable of being the very best because we’ve got the goods...

Lack of Steelers CB Depth Worrisome?

Last season, the Steelers started off with Cortez Allen, William Gay, and Ike Taylor as the top three CBs. They finished with William Gay, Brice McCain, and Antwon Blake. Tragedy struck when Ike broke his forearm early in the season and Cortez failed to live up to his potential. It became clear that the depth behind them was imperative as the season wore on. McCain and Blake stepped...

Pittsburgh Steelers sign Darrius Heyward-Bey

The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed Darrius Heyward-Bey on March 26. They signed the six-year veteran to a one-contract after a disappointing season in 2014.

Heyward-Bey Signing is “Good Insurance” for the Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have their top three wide receivers locked and loaded in Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant. Earlier today they locked up Darrius Heyward-Bey to fill that all-important fourth spot. Before we launch fireworks and use our party poppers, I see this signing as nothing more than insurance and I don’t see Heyward-Bey as the actual number four receiver...
