The Steelers players head into the offseason for recovery and the coaches head out to prepare for free agency and the draft.
Steelers season never truly ends for Steeler Nation so while the offseason starts to heat up we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Monday, Mar. 7th.
Before the free agency period begins on Wednesday Teresa Varley recaps all of the moves the Steelers have made so far this offseason. Obviously the most notable change was the retirement of tight end Heath Miller. Miller retired after 11 seasons with the Steelers.
The Steelers re-signed several players including cornerback Ross Cockrell, center/guard Chris Hubbard and fullback Roosevelt Nix along with long-snapper Greg Warren. Warren has been with the Steelers since he signed as an undrafted free agent in 2005.

At least it’s in a dome
Failed Steelers kicker Josh Scobee has found a new job. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the New Orleans Saints have signed Scobee to a one year contract at the vet minimum. All they need to do now is sign Jacoby Jones to return kicks and they’ll have both of the worst signings the Steelers made last year.
Scobee was (what’s a worse word than disastrous?) turrible in four games for the Steelers in 2015 by missing four field goals in 10 attempts and botching an extra point just to even things out. Makes you wonder how bad the Saints kicking situation is. At least he’ll be kicking in a dome that should help things.
There’s more to him than just a pretty face
Ravens linebacker with a face only a mother or a very drunk woman could love Terrell Suggs found himself in some legal trouble last week in Arizona. Mike Florio of PFT reports that while Suggs is only copping to driving on a suspended license, there’s more to it than that.
Suggs may also face charges for leaving the scene of an accident. Suggs is no stranger to legal troubles after he’s had several protective orders filed against him by his now ex-wife. She claimed in the police report that Suggs had held her and their 1-year old son down and poured bleach on them.
