The Pittsburgh Steelers have no shortage of drama to begin the summer. Entering the offseason programs, Cameron Heyward was a no-show at the beginning of OTAs while contract extension banter ensued. Meanwhile, rumors about trading for a wide receiver haven't gone away.

The Steelers recently made a pair of roster moves -- parting ways with WR Denzel Mims and S Trenton Thompson. Now the latest Steelers news revolves around a Pro Bowl linebacker and a polarizing quarterback.

Patrick Queen trolls Marlon Humphrey on 'X'

In a recent post from Steelers Depot, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey has a message for Patrick Queen: the 'grass might not be greener' in Pittsburgh.

Queen respectfully disagrees.

The Pro Bowl linebacker quote-tweeted the post with a video of him watering his lawn in Pittsburgh with what appears to be a glass of wine in his left hand.

This innocent trolling will make Steelers fans happy while upsetting Ravens fans. Queen, a former first-round pick by Baltimore, is coming off the best seasons of his NFL career in which he earned Pro Bowl honors in 2023. He's out to prove he doesn't need Roquan Smith next to him to be one of the league's best off-ball linebackers.

Former NFL player criticizes Steelers QB Justin Fields

Steelers beat writers aren't the only ones who have been critical of quarterback Justin Fields. Now LeSean McCoy is getting in on the action. The former NFL All-Pro running back appeared on an episode of Speak on Fox Sports 1 where he didn't hold back his words regarding Fields.

"Let's stop acting like we're expecting this guy to go out there and just be this super great quarterback. You can't tell me how bad he looked when he played here, played here, and then tell me on the other hand, like, 'Yo, but he could potentially be really, really good.' That don't even add up...He's not a good quarterback."

You won't find many analysts or former players willing to share their honest thoughts like this. While the jury is still out on Justin Fields, McCoy knows a thing or two about good quarterbacks. The final two signal callers he played with before retiring were Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady. He won Super Bowls with both teams.

T.J. Watt ranked 5th in Pete Prisco's top 100 players list

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports recently compromised his rankings of the top 100 players entering the 2024 season. T.J. Watt ranked 5th on the list. This put the former Defensive Player of the Year just ahead of players like QB Josh Allen, WR Justin Jefferson, RB Christian McCaffrey, and EDGE Micah Parsons.

Watt was the second-highest-ranked edge defender on the list behind reigning DPOY, Myles Garrett. This will stir up debate between Steelers and Browns fans, but both players ranking inside the top 5 in the NFL shows just how talented they both are.

The only other players to crack Prisco's list of the 100-best NFL players entering 2024 were George Pickens (68th) and Minkah Fitzpatrick (71st). Cameron Heyward and Alex Highsmith were listed as honorable mentions.
