  • 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 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.

     
  • Steelers GM Kevin Colbert Talks Defense and Ben at the Combine

    It’s the NFL Combine, the time of the year when media converges on Indianapolis to try and grill GM’s and coaches on draft and offseason plans before the start of free agency.

    Today Steelers GM Kevin Colbert had some things to say to Sirius NFL Radio about the team, talking about QB Ben Roethlisberger’s future, as well as the recent inking of wide out Antonio Brown and the fact that the team is going to continue to build on defense.

    Obviously it sounds more and more like there’s no way whatsoever that Roethlisberger is going to step away knowing now that both Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell are back and the team was one step away from the Super Bowl.

    It also sounds like the team is going heavy on defense in the draft, which is smart as we say the payoff later in the season in that department.

     
  • Steelers and LB James Harrison Agree to Two-Year Deal

    In a move that is sure to make Steelers fans thrilled, the team today signed linebacker James Harrison to a two-year contract, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    The deal is worth $3.5 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

    “He’s excited to finish his career in Pittsburgh,” agent Bill Parise told ESPN.

    The 38-year-old continues to play at a high level and be a leader on the Steelers defense. He has lost some speed from previous years, but he has maintained his elite strength, which he uses along with veteran savvy to effectively rush the passer.

    Harrison outplayed his previous two-year, $2.75 million contract with 7.5 sacks in his last 11 games, including disruptive turns in the playoffs against the Dolphins and Chiefs.

     
  • Steelers and WR Antonio Brown Agree to Four-Year Deal Worth a Reported $68 Million

    It’s a done deal for the Steelers and wide out Antonio Brown, as today the star receiver agreed to a reported four-year deal worth about $16 mil per season ($68 million total), making him the highest paid wide out in the game.

    The Steelers leading wide out wrapped up last season with 106 catches for over 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s had five straight seasons with over 1,000 receiving yards, and is held in regard as the best pass catcher in the game.

    Brown’s inking wasn’t the only news by the team today, as the club also placed the franchise tag on running back Le’Veon Bell, meaning basically that he’ll be back in 2017 as well.
