The Steelers offseason which includes everything from free agency to draft prep and anything in between is in full swing.
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 Wednesday, Mar. 16th.
The Steelers got a veteran tackle to help protect Ben Roethlisberger on Tuesday. They announced the signing of Ryan Harris to a two year contract. Harris was an unrestricted free agent from the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos.
He was a third round pick of the Broncos in the 2007 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame. He spent some time playing for the Texans and Chiefs before ultimately returning to Denver. He started all 16 games of the 2015 season and each one of the Broncos’ playoff wins.
"“I just want to say thanks to the Rooney family, Mr. Colbert, Coach Tomlin and Coach Munchak. I’m looking forward to this year, growing as both a player and a teammate.” – Ryan Harris"

The Steelers offensive line has long been a close-knit group so it should be interesting to see how well Harris will mesh with the group but anyone with the goals of winning should do just fine here.
Heave and hope
Speaking of not having goals of winning former Steelers, Dolphins and Vikings receiver Mike Wallace has signed a two-year, $11.5 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens. When arriving in Baltimore Wallace was all about praising his new allegedly elite quarterback, Joe Flacco.
"“When this process started, I knew I wasn’t going back to Minnesota. I was like, ‘I need a good quarterback. I need a quarterback who I know is proven, who can get things done,’ and Flacco, he’s always been that guy. I always loved his deep ball, always, ever since, like I said, I was in Pittsburgh watching Torrey Smith catching them. I was like, ‘Man, this guy gets like eight of them in a row.’ I need some of that.” – Mike Wallace"
Should we tell him? Nah, let’s let it be a surprise. Anyway, good luck with all of those DPI calls you’re about to get, Wallace.
You are not the boss of me
There might soon be a day in the NFL where Rogeez Goodell is no longer judge, jury and executioner of all things discipline. According to Matthew Futterman of The Wall Street Journal the NFL and NFLPA are currently meeting on whether to have neutral arbitrators handle disciplinary matters rather than Goodell himself.
The NFL owners will meet next week in Florida and could make an official ruling. I’m sure they’ll leave Goodell his gavel. I bet he totally has a gavel.
