Tomlin On Bell, New Roster Additions, Spence


Here’s some of the highlights of the Mike Tomlin presser from today as the team gets set to start the work week against the Ravens Sunday.

On rookie RB Le’Veon Bell’s Performance Sunday:

“I thought he ran very well,” Tomlin said. “They’ve got some talented people up front and there weren’t many holes. I thought he did a great job of putting the ball where it was supposed to be and running with the type of demeanor that we desire.”

On Sean Spence Back at Practice:

“We are going to look at Sean participating in some form or fashion this week, probably in a limited capacity, individual drills and so forth,” Tomlin said. “We’ve got a window to evaluate Sean, but more than anything it’s about getting him on the field first and just watching him in a limited capacity to see where he is before we make any plans about his participation or how we move forward. We’ll see how he performs in practice and let that be our guide in terms in how we progress. Initially he will be working in limited capacity in look teams more than not.”

On roster additions Richard Gordon and Isaiah Green:

“We just decided to strengthen ourselves in the best way possible,” said Tomlin. “Richard is a tight end that has similar attributes as David in that he is a strong run performer. He is healthy and ready to go.

“Isaiah is a useful corner/special teams’ player we are familiar with. Maybe he can help us this weekend. The emphasis was about helping us this weekend and not numbers. Numbers are important, but we are not married to numbers. When we have an opportunity to add a body that is what we are doing, adding someone who can help our efforts from a global standpoint, not necessarily from a position standpoint.”

    Am I the only one that is getting sick and tired of Tomlins gibberish? This clown has no clue of how to be a head coach. He would make a better politician, than a head coach.
