STEELERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jarvis Jones motivated by Steelers not picking up his option

Jarvis Jones says that he is motivated by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ decision not to pick up his contract option for 2017. Jones was a first-round pick by the Steelers in 2013 and is set to earn nearly $1.6 million this season. His salary for 2017 would have gone up to $8.4 million if the team picked up his 2017 option, which they chose not to do. That has him looking to produce...

Antonio Brown betters Combine time with 4.35 40-yard dash

Antonio Brown can fly. The Pittsburgh Steelers receiver hasn’t been slowed down by age, or even an appearance on Dancing With the Stars. If anything, those experiences have made Brown faster. Brown ran a 4.47 40-yard dash at the 2010 Scouting Combine. On Monday evening, Brown tweeted his most recent 40 time that not only beats that 4.47 mark, but blows it away. Ran a 4.35/40...

Le'Veon Bell: Bengals, other teams try to injure me

Le’Veon Bell was lost for the season last year in Week 8 when he suffered a torn MCL against the Cincinnati Bengals. If you remember, several Pittsburgh Steelers players took exception to the way Vontaze Burfict reacted when Bell went down. While Bell clearly feels there was some intent from Burfict, he says the Bengals linebacker is not the only one who plays that way. Taking...

Steelers will probably find Roethlisberger replacement after he retires

Every once in a while, the subject of how and when the Steelers will find Ben Roethlisberger’s replacement at quarterback is broached. Should they draft Roethlisberger’s heir apparent now, or should they wait until he’s called it a Steeler and NFL career? For those in the former camp, you should know it’s kind of hard to go out and find a top-notch quarterback when one is...

Steelers Should Be Motivated To Play Javon Hargrave

Of all the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2016 draft picks, it has to be fourth-round selection Javon Hargrave who walks into the most interesting predicament as a rookie.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Who is “Artie Burns”?

Other than being the number 25th selection in the 2016 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Artie Burns is a pretty interesting well rounded guy who is also a freak athlete. In his life so far, he has already had to deal with small forms of stardom as well as a ton of adversity. Burns was a track star in high school. In his junior and senior years, Burns was an All-USA high school...

Post-Draft Pittsburgh Steelers Free Agency Wishlist

Ok, I want to be clear. These certainly are far from “prize” free agents and our first wishlist way back in March wasn’t exactly star-studded either. But instead of slogging through a meaningless rankings list, here is a slightly less meaningless free agency wishlist. Honestly, I don’t have any attachment...

Steelers’ Brass Can’t Be Thrilled With Le’Veon Bell

In August of 2014, Pittsburgh Steelers’ running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were cited for marijuana possession and Bell was to have the added charge of driving under the influence. This occurred the same day the team was to fly to Philadelphia for a preseason game with the Eagles. Eventually, Bell was suspended and would miss the first two games of the 2015 season...

James Harrison has made it clear in the past that he does not believe NFL drug testing is truly random. Earlier this offseason, he was tested the day after he announced he is returning for a 14th NFL season. An NFL official showed up at his door again on Tuesday, and Harrison once again seemed annoyed.
