The NFL offseason has officially begun and as we prepare for combines, free agency, and the draft Steelers season never officially ends. We’ll be busy looking around for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Tuesday, Feb. 3rd.

Pittsburgh Super Bowl host city?

According to the Trib’s Rob Rossi, the Steelers founding family is all for the city of Pittsburgh being a possible Super Bowl host city sometime in the future. The Steelers are undergoing an expansion to Heinz Field which will up the capacity to 67,440, still smaller than the usual Super Bowl crowds, though.

"“Yeah, I think it should happen. As of last year, the New York Giants have had one. There have been games in Minnesota and Detroit, places like that. So now you think about it. Of course, you’ll have a lot of teams in the Northeast that will want one, but I think Pittsburgh would be a good place for the next one in the North.” – Dan Rooney"

Cities looking to bid for a Super Bowl hosting chance have to meet demands for hotel rooms and all the other free crap the NFL bleeds out of the town while they’re there. Minnesota will host the Super Bowl in 2018 and has less than the usual amount of hotel rooms pledged so far.

Dapper Dan Sportsman of the Year

Along with the accolades of Pro Bowl star, All-Pro selection, and receiving leader for the 2014 season Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has collected another honor, this time it’s a local one. The PPG has named Brown the Dapper Dan Sportsman of the Year, the first time a Steelers player has won the award since Jerome Bettis in 2005 and the first time a receiver has won it since Louis Lipps in 1985.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin won the award in 2008. There will be a dinner and charity auction on February 10th to celebrate Brown and the proceeds will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania. Hall of Fame quarterback and Western Pennsylvania native Jim Kelly will be receiving a lifetime achievement award at the dinner.


This isn’t Steelers related but I just can’t help myself when it comes to Warren Sapp. He notoriously called the Steelers defense “old, slow and over” a few years back, words that the team should have actually heeded at the time, but nonetheless he’s been an arrogant, overrated jackass from his playing days to his spot on the NFL Network.

Seems as though Sapp wrapped up his Super Bowl coverage for the Network on Sunday and headed back to his hotel to order some hookers, according to Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated. He got into an altercation with one of them and was arrested for solicitation and assault. He’s been suspended indefinitely without pay from the NFL Network. Sapp was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame his first year of eligibility in 2013.
