Former Steelers linebacker
will await word on whether or not he’ll be inducted as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2016 on Saturday night, the same way he’s been waiting the Saturday night before the Super Bowl for the last five years.
Teresa Varley caught up with Greene about his feelings towards his three seasons with the Steelers from 1993-95 and how he knew it was a perfect fit for him when he arrived.
"“I remember I flew into Pittsburgh and Coach Cowher picked me up at the airport. We came through the Ft. Pitt Tunnel and it was amazing, just the City of Pittsburgh jumping out at me. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so cool.’ The city was phenomenal. Then I went in and met with Coach Cowher and Coach Dom Capers and they showed me the scheme on the board.

Jordan Berry’s first season as the Steelers punter is complete and the results were inconsistent. Chris Adamski of the Trib reminds us that he didn’t have any punts returned for touchdowns or any punts blocked this season but he still finished in the bottom of the barrel for distance in the league in punting.

Berry is a fully-rostered player so he’ll be back in 2016 but don’t be surprised if the Steelers don’t bring in another punter in camp to give some competition.
