The Steelers draft picks have been made and the offseason workout program is in full swing.
Steelers season never truly ends for Steeler Nation so while the team starts to put in the work to prepare for the 2016 NFL season 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, June 8th.
Sometimes we need reminded that there are more important things than football and rivalries and all that. Sometimes we also need reminded that it’s always a good time to throw shade at the state of Ohio. Thankfully, the Steelers got a dose of both courtesy of Stephon Tuitt, who brought his neighbor, Ryan to practice.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler describes Tuitt’s friend and new Steelers team “buddy”, Ryan as a 21-year-old brain tumor survivor. Coach Tomlin invited Ryan to talk to the players and he addressed the crowd quite appropriately.
"“If we all pays away, in heaven, there’s no Cincinnati, there’s no Cleveland – It’s all Pittsburgh Steelers fans.”"
The Steelers made some roster moves on Tuesday with the signing of some undrafted free agent rookies. They signed rookie tight end Paul Lang and linebacker Kevin Anderson. For the move they had to release tight end Jay Rome and linebacker Tyriq McCord from the 90-man roster.
The team begins mandatory minicamp next week.
Roger Goodell has to know he’s not a liked individual. It’s not like it’s a secret that he’s probably one of if not the most hated commissioner of any of the major sports. Still you have to wonder how someone deals with stuff like this photo opp with a Patriots fan or the NFL Twitter handle being hacked to falsely announce Goodell’s untimely death.
While I don’t make it a habit of joking around about death or wishing death upon anyone I couldn’t help but chuckle at that. Also remembering that Goodell made $34.1 million last year as the head of a “nonprofit trade group” that grossed billions of dollars I can’t feel too bad about public jokes at his expense. He is a major tool after all.
Case in point. You can’t make stuff like this up.
