  • 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.

     
  • Report: Steelers Ink FordhamTE Phazahn Odom Following Minicamp

    The Steelers have added another piece to their roster, as reports say the team has come to terms with former Fordham tight end Phazahn Odom.

    Odom was an All-state basketball player in high school who averaged 19 points and 14 rebounds per game. We’ll see if his game can translate to the NFL and if he can do enough to make the Steelers roster.

     
  • Steelers Release Four Players Including CB Al-Hajj Shabazz and WR Canaan Severin

    The Steelers released veteran quarterback Zach Mettenberger on Monday, and today Missi Matthews reports the team has let go of a couple more players from their roster.

    Brown-Dukes is a running back who was added to the practice squad back in late December, Johnson, another running back, came aboard the practice squad the second week in January.

    Wide out Severin joined the team last season from the University of Virginia, and at 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds he could have rounded into an interesting player, and was even talked about as a sleeper for the club, but obviously didn’t do enough for the team to justify a roster spot.

    Al-Hajj Shabazz was added to the 53-man roster December 23rd of last season after Shamarko Thomas was placed on IR. He was back and forth on the teams’ practice squad as well as the team, as he even spent time with the Texans last season.

     
  • 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.
