• Steelers Reportedly Agree to Two-Year Deal with Jaguars FA DL Tyson Alualu

    The Steelers after inking two free agents on Monday, will add another more today, as the team will sign former Jaguars defensive lineman Tyson Alualu.

    Reports say that the deal for the defensive lineman will be a two-year pact.

    Alualu was a top ten pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars back in 2010, but has never lived up to the hype that the Jags felt they would get out of him.

    The 30-year-old appeared in 14 games with ten starts last season for the Jaguars, putting up 36 total tackles and 2.5 sacks. He’s naturally a defensive tackle, but it’s not known if the Steelers are going to try and move his position in the teams’ 3-4 defense.

     
  • Roethlisberger on a Return to the Steelers in 2017: “I’m Leaning Towards It”

    It’s been a fear for Steelers fans since the moment it was brought up after the teams’ AFC Title Game loss to the Patriots, but it is sounding more and more like quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is “leaning towards” returning to play in 2017.

    The two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback stated the following at the Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend conference at Liberty University on Friday when asked if he’s coming back to the black and gold.

    “I’m leaning towards it.”

    Any casino online review would have had the longtime quarterback returning to the team, but when he said in January that he was not sure about coming back, fans were flat out terrified about the Steelers future without their leading passer.

    It seemed like a long shot all along that Ben wouldn’t come back for 2017, but at the same time, just the fact that he was even thinking about retiring was something the Steelers were not prepared for.

    The teams does have Landry Jones and he’s been inked despite being a free agent, but the team isn’t exactly comfortable with him being the full-time starter – at least not yet.

    Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert has stated more than once that the team has to be aware long term about the quarterback position, but if they can get two to three more years out of Roethlisberger, it would at least prepare the team to grab a quarterback they can mold long term.

    Let’s see if that starts with this year’s NFL Draft, or if they are confident enough to keep the position in the hands of Ben again hoping that he’s back in 2018 as well.

     
  • Steelers Agree to Terms with Wide Out Justin Hunter

    The Steelers made their first outside free agent signing on Wednesday, coming to terms with wide out Justin Hunter, who they hosted on Tuesday.

    Hunter has appeared in 48 games since being drafted by the Titans in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of the college of Tennessee.

    He had 14 starts to his credit with 78 career receptions and 12 touchdowns with 1,305 yards. He had 10 catches and four touchdowns last season as a member of the Buffalo Bills.

    Last season Hunter met with the Dolphins and Bills.

     
  • Steelers FA OLB Jarvis Jones Chatting with the Cardinals

    After losing linebacker Lawrence Timmons to the Dolphins a few days back, now the Steelers might be losing OLB Jarvis Jones, who is chatting with the Arizona Cardinals today.

    In four seasons with the Steelers being the first round pick, the linebacker had 42 tackles, a sack, an interception and two forced fumbles and had six sacks.

     
  • Steelers Lose WR Markus Wheaton to the Bears

    The Steelers have lost their first free agent, as today wide out Markus Wheaton agreed to a deal to join the Chicago Bears.

    The former Steelers third-round will be expected to pick up some of the slack with the Bears losing leading wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, who signed a one-year deal with the Eagles worth $14 million.

    Wheaton was counted on last season with the team not having the services of Martavis Bryant, but a shoulder injury cost him all but three games of the season.

    He had his best season in 2015, catching 44 balls for 749 yards and five touchdowns. At only 26, it would have been nice to keep him around, but the Steelers will likely look to the draft to replace him, and are obvious in hoping that Bryant is good to go to return in 2017.

    The free agent pool for wide outs still have the likes of Terrelle Pryor, Pierre Garcon and Dontrelle Inman, but the Steelers most likely won’t overpay for one of those players.

    An 888 casino review shows that even without Wheaton, the Steelers are still highly thought of in the AFC, as they are listed as the second favorite in the AFC, 10-1 to win Super Bowl 52 next February.
