• Green Gone – Steelers Release TE Ladarius Green After Just One Season

    Ladarius Green’s time with Steelers is over, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The team released Green, a tight end signed in 2016 to replace Heath Miller, after a failed physical. He played six games last season due to injury.

    Green was the team’s most notable addition last offseason and was expected to add another pass-catching weapon to the offense, but missed the start of the season because of ankle surgery and headaches.

    Green wound up starting twice and making 18 catches for 304 yards and a touchdown, then was concussed in Week 15 against Cincinnati, ending his seaso

     
  • A Former Steelers OL Says QB Ben Roethlisberger Really Considered Retiring

    Although pretty much nobody expected Ben Roethlisberger to actually retire this offseason, apparently Big Ben himself seriously considered it, Alex Iniguez of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    This according to Willie Colon, the former Steelers offensive lineman and seven-season Roethlisberger teammate. Colon told Pro Football Talk that he sat down with Roethlisberger, who told him that injuries are at the forefront of his thinking.

    Colon said the current offensive line will have a lot to do with that — can it help the 35-year-old quarterback stay upright and relatively unharmed? If so, Roethlisberger could have a few years left in him.

    “He’s passionate about playing, but one thing that keeps his fire going is that offensive line,” Colon said.

    Ostensibly, another thing that keeps his fire going is being surrounded by some of the most potent offensive weapons in the NFL, namely Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell.

     
  • Steelers Release Veteran QB Zach Mettenberger

    The Steelers drafted a quarterback and added another as an unrestricted free agent, and with that came the news today the team has released veteran quarterback Zach Mettenberger.

    The move comes two days after they drafted Josh Dobbs and added free agent Nick Schuessler, two players that could be a big part of the teams future when it comes to lining up under center.

    Mettenberger didn’t do much despite serving as the third-string quarterback last season behind Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones.

    He didn’t appear in a game during his tenure with the black and gold. He is best remembered for his time in Tennessee, playing with the Titans during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

     
  • Steelers WR Antonio Brown Goes Back to the Mother of His Kids After Leaving Her for Instagram Model

    In a world where often NFL players’ relationships go south and it’s all now out in pubic on Instagram and Twitter, today we have the story about Steelers star wide out Antonio Brown – who evidently is stating that he’s going BACK to the mother of his kids, leaving behind an Instagram model.

    Brown had recently left the mother of his kids to be with this instagram model, despite the woman currently being pregnant with another child of Browns (their fourth together).

    The Steelers wide out left the mother of his kids to be with instagram model Jena Frumes, but says it was a call from God that made him come to his senses.

    Frumes has since taken to twitter to voice her displeasure about Brown and the end of the relationship.

    Here’s a post on Frumes’ instagram in case you wanted to see what Brown at the time left his longtime partner for.

    Beautiful day huh? ???

    In any case, for now it appears all is back to normal in the Brown home.

     
  • WR Martavis Bryant Closer to Getting Back on the Playing Field for the Steelers?

    Earlier this week, Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant posted on Snapchat that he was in New York City and had a “big day” upcoming.

    A source told Alex Marvez of the Sporting News Bryant met Thursday with the NFL’s Management Council as part of his efforts for reinstatement from a year-long drug suspension. Among the conditions for being cleared to play again, Bryant was told to assemble a plan detailing safeguards that would help him prevent a relapse upon returning to Pittsburgh, the source said.

    Bryant also will have to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell or one of his representatives once the league’s medical director and medical advisor submit their recommendation about reinstatement per the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

    Bryant was suspended last March after failing multiple drug tests, derailing the career of one of the league’s top young wideouts. Bryant, 25, averaged 17.3 yards on 76 catches during his first two seasons and scored 14 touchdowns.

    Bryant has shared videos of his training and a photo of his infant son wearing a Steelers beanie on Instagram in recent weeks, all of which can be considered positive signs of a turnaround. Bryant also posted a photo Friday of Steelers chairman Dan Rooney, who died Thursday at age 84 , with the message, “RIP Mr. Rooney may God be with his family.”
