Need tickets?

The Steelers announced that they will continue to use the variable pricing plan for single-game tickets, a plan they adopted last season for the first time. It breaks the home games down into tiers, and those tiers come with different prices.

The preseason games will be the lowest tier, obviously, with the Steelers hosting two preseason games; one against Green Bay and their preseason finale against Carolina. The second tier up will be the “Gold Tier” and will feature games against teams such as the Cardinals, Bengals, Raiders, Colts and Broncos.

The “Black Tier” games are against the 49ers, Ravens and Browns. Individual game tickets will go on sale in June.

Busy Busy Ben

Just because it’s the offseason doesn’t mean our quarterback is off flying around from Derby’s to fights and denying deflating any footballs. He’s actually being quite busy. According to his website he wrapped up training with his offensive teammates at the University of Georgia.

Ben Roethlisberger flew down to Georgia with Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Martavis Bryant and Darrius Heyward-Bey to have some fun and workout at the UGA facilities. Ben’s foundation also approved a grant to the Steubenville, Ohio police department, which they in turn were able to purchase a new K9 vehicle with those funds. Steelers mandatory OTAs begin May 26th.

Half of the Steelers 2015 Draft Class is signed

The Steelers signed their second-round pick Senquez Golson, making him the fourth of the eight draft picks to be signed so far. Golson was the 56th overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft out of Ole Miss and a polarizing pick for some. Golson joins Dorant Grant, Anthony Chickillo and L.T. Walton as the signed players of the Steelers 2015 Draft Class.

Golson is definitely considered undersized for a defensive back standing at 5’9” and 176 pounds but the first-team All-American had 10 interceptions in 2014, tying a school record for Mississippi. He was the first corner taken higher than the third round since Bryant McFadden was drafted in 2005.
