- If you missed anything this week, we have you covered with our weekly recap.
- How did Steelers rookie CB Artie Burns perform in 2016 compared to the other CBs who were drafted in the first round? The Pittsburgh Steelers selected cornerback Artie Burns, from the University of Miami, with the 25th overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. At the time Pittsburgh was on the clock, four other cornerbacks were already taken off draft boards and only two athletes remained that were legitimate players the Steelers could draft – Clemson’s Mackensie Alexander and Miami&r
Reliving some of the great Steelers moments through the lens of former team photographer Michael FabusThanks to Ron Lippock of Pittsburgh Sports Daily, we take you behind the lens of the Steelers team photographer from Chuck Noll to Santonio Holmes’ legendary Super Bowl 43 catch. Enjoy this interview with former Steelers team photographer Michael Fabus - one of hundreds by Ron Lippock used in the writing of Steelers Takeaways: Player Memories Through the Decades (available here via Amazon).
The interview has a number of funny anecdotes about photo shoots with Gregg Lloyd, Louis Lipps, and
- The Pittsburgh Penguins took over Heinz Field Saturday night, and members of the Steelers took to social media to show some love for their cross-town brothers. The Pittsburgh Steelers won their share of games at Heinz Field this 2016 regular season, and on Saturday night it was the Pittsburgh Penguins who were victorious at the big Ketchup Bottle, beating the Philadelphia Flyers by the score of 4-2 as a part of the NHL’s Stadium Series.
It only seemed natural the Steelers were infused into

- At a time when their former Florida teammate is facing a much more serious criminal trial, NFL offensive lineman Maurkice and Mike Pouncey soon will be standing trial in a civil case arising from a 2014 brawl at their birthday party. Per multiple reports, the trial against the twins starts on March 6 in Miami-Dade…

- The Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro center will begin a trial over 2014 allegations. In the NFL, no news in the offseason is good news. Unless you are signing a free agent, or celebrating a draft pick, you don’t want any players from your favorite team to be in the news.
Nonetheless, for the third straight offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have a player who is embroiled in controversy during the offseason. Le’Veon Bell’s back-to-back suspensions and Martavis Bryant’s one yea

- Ground game eventually achieved new heights for Steelers in 2016.
- Emmanuel Sanders didn’t want to be written off as too small at the 2010 Scouting Combine, and so he got a bright idea: Add a lot of water weight. Sanders said he was worried NFL teams wouldn’t think he was big enough to hold up to the grind at the professional level, so he drank…
- The Steelers need a pass rusher, and we break down which pass rushers you should watch at the NFL Scouting Combine.The NFL Scouting Combine is right around the corner, and many Pittsburgh Steelers fans are looking at the lengthy list of prospects attending the event and wondering, “Who are we supposed to watch?!”
Sure, there are the draftniks who follow the combine like most follow actual football, but for most fans they want a bit of a cheat sheet. Sure, there are the big name playe
- The Pittsburgh Steelers and NFL have reached out to a High School in West Virginia which was devastated by the floods which ravaged most of the state last year. When it comes to sports, tragedy is never thought of, outside of the bad loss which could end the season. Otherwise, form High School to the professional ranks, the world keeps turning as practices and games take place like clockwork.Until something catastrophic happens which changes this from taking place.
This is what happened when flo
- DeAngelo Williams is a character. He is very outgoing, and loves to poke fun at his friends, and often time his teammates. On a recent trip to Findland, Williams provided plenty of laughs on social media. In the NFL offseason, things get slow. Sure there are the big milestones: College All-Star games, NFL Scouting Combine, prospect pro days, NFL free agency and of course the 2017 NFL Draft. But between those events, and especially afterwards, the NFL goes quiet. In fact, if you have news breakin

- Although the question of whether the Vikings cut running back Adrian Peterson won’t affect the amount of the franchise tag applicable to Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, there’s another development that will: Not using the franchise tag at all. The Steelers could opt to use the transition tag instead of the franchise tag on Bell.…

- The Pittsburgh Steelers were awarded a third round compensatory pick due to the loss of Kelvin Beachum in free agency after the 2015 season. Sometimes projections are wrong, and sometimes it is really good when they are wrong.This is the situation for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were projected to not gain a compensatory pick higher than a 5th round selection, but were awarded a 3rd round pick for the loss of offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum prior to the 2016 regular season.
The Steelers will get

- Half the teams in the league ended up with extra draft picks Friday, with 11 teams getting an extra third-rounder. The league announced compensatory choices, which are awarded to teams for net free agent losses the year before. The highest pick, the 97th overall, went to the Dolphins, who were picked over last March, with…

- Another week, another weekly mock that people will fear. If this mock ends up not pleasing you all (which is likely) then I apologize, but when you stay up all night and then you remember “Oh that’s right, I need to make sure I get my weekly mock out.” sometimes things get messy.
Without further delay, let’s get this show on the road.

- In the sixth, and final, part of the series, we look at the numbers behind Le’Veon Bell’s projected contract, and put the final touches on the 53-man roster. Here is the sixth, and last, installment of my journey as the Steelers’ GM for the 2017 offseason. This trek has wound through free agency, the NFL draft (still licking my wounds), rolling out the Steelers’ long-term contracts, and now I finish up with the final touches on the high dollar contracts along with my fina

- The Pittsburgh Steelers have turned into a wide receiver factory the past decade, and will rely on their core group to help the team succeed in 2017. The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiving corps used to be known as one of the best in the NFL — then 2016 happened.
Martavis Bryant was suspended for the entire season (possibly more), Markus Wheaton was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, Darrius Heyward-Bey was hampered by a foot injury the majority of the season, Sammie Coates
- You have to love it when a plan comes together. More accurately, you have to love it when your favorite team’s needs dovetail perfectly with the best positions in the NFL Draft. Do they, or don’t they? How early?
Those questions are asked and answered about every position, on every NFL team, every year. But for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there may be no position in 2017 where the answers to those questions are more contentious than at cornerback.
Those against drafting a cornerback wou
- Despite his rocky road, the Steelers would be wise to take a long look at a player they already know well — James Conner.Unfortunately, when football fans think of Pitt running back James Conner, they typically think of one thing — cancer.
This isn’t to downplay Conner’s incredible comeback from his cancer diagnosis, but just the fact the novice football fan forgets he suffered a torn MCL before being diagnosed with cancer.Despite all the obstacles against him, Conner did
- The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t necessarily need to draft a safety, but some prospects are just too good to pass up. LSU safety Jamal Adams could be that kind of prospect as the 2017 NFL Draft rolls around. As the 2017 NFL Draft inches closer, and the NFL Scouting Combine is right around the corner, there are certain prospects who jump off the screen when you watch their game film. These are the type of players who you simply can’t pass up on if they are still available when it is your

- Former University of Pittsburgh running back James Conner got “a clean scan” Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. Conner was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015 but returned to play last season. The news of his clean medical report comes a week before he heads to Indianapolis to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine with a…
