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 Thursday, Mar. 17th.
Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is anxious to get back out on the field. In between dropping straight fire mix tapes and endlessly amusing himself on social media the third year running back is doing everything he can to get back out on the field as soon as possible.
Teresa Varley talked to Bell about how bad he wants to get back out there and how hard it was to be a spectator during the post season for the second year in a row.
September can’t come fast enough!
“It’s been a long time since I ran out of the tunnel, got ready for a game, listened to my pregame music. I can only imagine how I am going to feel. I know some people will look forward to seeing me back playing. I look forward to getting back. I can’t wait to play. That is going to get me even more amped up.” – Le’Veon Bell
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is a man of many talents. On top of being a sniper with the football, hitting his targets from yards away no matter how many obstacles are in between, he’s been working on being an actual sniper.
CBS Local Pittsburgh details how Roethlisberger and his father, Ken, both avid outdoorsmen are being featured on an episode of “Gridiron Outdoors with Mike Pawlawski,” airing on the Outdoor Channel. The father and son duo got some shooting training from a former Navy Seal.
Can’t you just picture this season Antonio Brown shaking off defenders with his dancing moves while Roethlisberger hits him with the ball with sniper-like precision? Damn, September really can’t come fast enough.
Lured by LeBeau
When former Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau resigned last offseason and took the assistant coaching position with the Tennessee Titans there was some thought that he’d be able to lure away several of the Steelers’ defensive players because of their undeniable loyalty to him.
That turned out to not be the case but this offseason LeBeau was able to lure away a member of the Steelers defense. Unrestricted free agent linebacker Sean Spence has signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to PFT’s Mike Florio.
Spence suffered a gruesome knee injury his rookie season and battled all the way back to appear in 15 games last season with four starts.
