• Steelers Fill Two Holes in Free Agency; Ink RB Davis and CB Sensabaugh

    The Steelers have a new pair of free agents, two players that could play a solid role in the team as they look to build towards another title run in 2017.

    Monday the team announced the addition of running back and kick returner Knile Davis, as well as cornerback Coty Sensabaugh.

    Free agency continues, make sure to follow the news which you can find at Skybook NFL lines and news.

    First Sensabaugh, still a player with plenty to give at 28 years old, he’s been around, playing with the Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Rams and New York Giants.

    He’s played on the outside the last couple of seasons as well as has had extensive time playing as a nickel back. He’s a player who pointed out his ties with Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak as well as the Titans defense as two reasons he joined the black and gold.

    The cornerback has made 29 starts in 72 career games, with two picks to his credit. He started last season as a starter in Tennessee, but was moved to a backup role after two games, released after four, and then went to the Giants for the rest of 2016.

    Davis comes aboard after a tenure with the team the Steelers knocked off in the divisional round of the playoffs last season, the Kansas City Chiefs.

    He will add a big role for the team, that of kick returner. Last season that role was shifted between a couple players on the team, and it will be nice to see a steady hand at the wheel of the kick return duties.

    Davis has a 26.8 average at the kick return spot, and also will be backup Le’Veon Bell in the running back position, something he’s done well in Kansas City.

    The Chiefs 3rd round pick in 2013 has 805 career rushing yards with 11 touchdowns to his resume.

    “I’ve had 100-yard games in this league. I’ve done well in this league, and I’m prepared for whatever comes in the future,” Davis stated on Monday.

    The two become the second and third outside free agents to join the Steelers this offseason, as the team already added wide out Justin Hunter.

     
  • Steelers Running Back Le’Veon Bell Has Surgery

    After it was reported he wouldn’t get in for a procedure, today Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell underwent surgery after all today.

    NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back had surgery Monday to fix a core muscle injury, according to a source informed of the procedure. The normal timeline for recovery is approximately six weeks

    Bell posted a photo of himself in a hospital gown on Snapchat earlier in the day, with little other context, via BehindTheSteelCurtain.com.

    The news of Bell’s surgery comes weeks after we thought the running back was in the clear.

    Bell missed most of the Steelers’ loss to the New England Patriots due to a groin injury. Bell told NFL Network during Super Bowl week that he had been dealing with the injury before the AFC Championship game. The NFL is investigating Bell not being listed on the team’s injury report during the playoffs. The investigation remains open, an NFL spokesman confirmed to NFL.com.

     
  • Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell Won’t Need Groin Surgery

    During Super Bowl LI week, Le’Veon Bell said he was hoping to avoid groin surgery. It appears the Steelers’ running back will, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

    NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Bell is not expected to undergo surgery after visiting doctors after the playoffs. Bell has not scheduled surgery yet, which would have happened by now if necessary, per Rapoport.

    Bell missed most of the Steelers’ loss to the New England Patriots due to a groin injury. The dual-threat back told NFL Network earlier this month that he had been dealing with the injury before the AFC Championship game.

    “People don’t understand I was kind of fighting that through the playoffs,” Bell said. “I really hurt it in the Miami game. I played through the whole Kansas City game with it. The beginning of the Patriots game, I felt it.”

     
  • Steelers Assistant Coach Joey Porter To Plead Guilty to Disorderly Conduct

    Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter plans to plead guilty to a disorderly conduct citation stemming from a dispute with a bar bouncer and a police officer last month.

    Porter’s defense attorney, Robert Del Greco, tells The Associated Press that Porter will plead guilty in City Court on Tuesday afternoon.

    Porter was originally charged with aggravated assault and other more serious charges for allegedly grabbing the officer’s wrists outside a South Side bar after a bouncer denied him entrance on Jan. 8.

    But Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. dropped all charges but disorderly conduct and public drunkenness citations, saying surveillance video didn’t support more serious charges.

    The city’s Citizens Police Review Board, police union and brass all have said the charges were warranted.

    The citation carries up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.

     
  • Steelers Sign DL Hooks and Philon to Contracts

    The Steelers signed defensive linemen Lavon Hooks and Roy Philon to contracts on Monday, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Both players were in training camp last summer with the team. Philon was waived/injured on Aug. 14, and Hooks was released Sept. 3 in the final round of roster cuts.
