With the return of Max Starks to the Steelers many are questioning who will be the starting Left Tackle. It still looks though as if there will not be a question to who the starter is. Starks basically answered that question for us in an interview with WDVE. Starks plans to start the preseason […]
The Steelers have signed Max Starks to a one year deal according to Ed Bouchette. Starks has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee this summer. He had yet to sign with a team due to his health.
Starks will come in and compete with Mike Adams for the Left Tackle position. He will provide good […]
What used to be one the Steelers biggest strengths had become the teams biggest weakness over the past 8 seasons. The Steelers won their fifth Super Bowl with what was one of the top tier offensive lines in football. They had a Hall of Famer in Alan Faneca. Two studs at their position in […]
Back from vacation and what a good two week rest that was. It seems there was a lot going on while I was away. I won’t go backwards in time but I will pick back up now that I am back.
Here are some notes from Minicamp Day 1:
Mike Wallace did not show up […]
Ed Bouchette is reporting that the Steelers draft picks David DeCastro, Mike Adams and Alameda Ta’amu may be able to participate in Steelers minicamp. All 3 of these guys are still in school and were not allowed to participate until the semester was over. That now may not be the case.
According to Ed the […]
The Steelers got a gift when David DeCastro fell to them at pick 24 in the 2012 NFL Draft. DeCastro was a top 10 prospect but expected to fall into the teens because he is a guard. Pass rushers and cornerbacks passed him up on draft day and DeCastro continued to slip. The Steelers […]
The Steelers open up OTAs tomorrow. A big part of their offense will be missing when they do. Mike Wallace has yet to sign his RFA tender. He is also not expected to be at OTAs according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
The Steelers are in the early stages of a new offense. This is […]
The Steelers have a vacant left tackle position at the moment. The best bet is that Mike Adams is going to fill that void. He will have competition at that spot according to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. Veterans Jonathan Scott and Trai Essex will compete with Adams for the starting spot.
The Steelers first two draft picks who both look like they are on their way to starting roles for the Steelers are unable to participate in OTA’s with the team from a report by Mark Kaboly. DeCastro and Adams both have obligations to their colleges and have to finish school before being able to join […]
Ed Bouchette is reporting that Marcus Gilbert will remain on the right side where he belongs. That means rookie OT Mike Adams will be placed on the left side. The Steelers told Willie Colon he was moving to left guard with full intentions of making Adams the Left Tackle.
This makes the most sense. Gilbert […]
Mike Prisuta is reporting that Willie Colon is the new Left Guard for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The tweet is a direct quote from Colon. This is great news in my opinion. It means that Mike Adams will start. That Marcus Gilbert will stay at Right Tackle and we now have a more then solid […]
The Steelers drafted Marcus Gilbert last season to possibly be the future left tackle of the Pittsburgh Steelers. When the season started Gilbert was second string behind Jonathan Scott. The Steelers went with the veteran at Left Tackle. Gilbert was expected to be the swing tackle behind Scott and Colon.
Then Willie Colon went […]
Second Round Pick Mike Adams has come to terms with the Steelers. He signed a 4 year deal yesterday. The numbers for the contract are not known as of yet. Adams is the fourth member of the Steelers draft class to sign. They still have five players left to get inked including first round pick […]
Steelers All Pro Center Maurkice Pouncey is fully healed from ankle surgery this offseason. Pouncey struggled with the injuries to his ankle over the last two seasons. The surgery should make it so the chance of another injury is much smaller. Now that Pouncey is fully healed he will be able to participate in […]
