    The Pittsburgh Steelers’ interest in Malik Willis is the worst kept secret at the Senior Bowl. That’s not good news for Kenny Pickett. Pickett spent four years in the Steelers’ backyard, but perhaps they’ve seen enough of the Pitt product to make a decision on whether or not they want him to replace Ben Roethlisberger. Big Ben was the Steelers starting quarterback for 18 years, so Pittsburgh hasn’t even had to focus on the position for nearly two decades. As great as Pickett was — a Heisman finalist at a school that hasn’t produced one since Larry Fitzgerald — that doesn’t mean his talent will translate as well to the NFL. Scouting draft prospects is like studying a foreign language. Anyone claiming to know right from wrong, minus those who do it for a living, in reality knows nothing. Thus far in Mobile, however, it appears the Steelers are keen on Willis rather than Pickett and other signal-callers. An NFL source told me yesterday that the #Steelers clearly prefer Liberty QB Malik Willis to Pitt QB Kenny Pickett. — Thor...
    Getty Bill Cowher celebrates on sideline with Ben Roethlisberger. From the moment Ben Roethlisberger tapped the tweet button on his phone, messages came pouring in from Steelers fans, fans of the game and colleagues. The legendary Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback announced on January 27 that he’s hanging up the cleats and saying goodbye to the game of football. Who better to kick things off than “The Chin” himself — the legendary Hall of Fame head coach Bill Cowher. “Ben, congratulations on a remarkable career. When you think about all the passing records that you have set, and, more importantly, the fact that you took the team to three Super Bowls, brought home two championships, and you did this all with one team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. 18 years. When I think about you, you identify and represent everything a Pittsburgh Steeler is. You played with grit, determination, and a degree of toughness. I congratulated you on a job well done. And, without a doubt, in five years, I will see you in Canton.” From @CowherCBS to @_BigBen7 #ThankYou7 pic.twitter.com/V5cAEg4rcy —...
    Andy Reid’s team is looking to reach a third straight Super Bowl. How healthy will the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense be on Sunday evening? Reaching three consecutive Super Bowls is a rare feat. It’s been done only three times previously and all by teams in the AFC East. There were the Miami Dolphins from 1971-73, the Buffalo Bills with four straight trips from 1990-93 and more recently, the New England Patriots from 2016-19. Now the Kansas City Chiefs look to immediately match the Pats. In 2019, Andy Reid’s team captured Super Bowl LIV over the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20. A year ago, they were throttled by the wild card Tampa Bay Buccaneers in LV, 31-9 As the AFC West champions embark on the 2021 NFL playoffs, they are the conference’s No. 2 seed. And two days before their Sunday night clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium, there was somewhat promising news regarding their electrifying wide receiver (via NFL Network’s James Palmer). Tyreek Hill (heel) practiced today and unless if something happens between now and then, he’s playing Sunday...
    The Steelers need a replacement for Ben Roethlisberger, but per one team insider, that replacement may already be on the team. Mason Rudolph was originally drafted as a long-term project, thought to eventually one day take over for Roethlisberger as he entered his late-30’s. Well, Roethlisberger has played longer than expected, while Rudolph hasn’t made the necessary transition an easy one. The Oklahoma State product is a fine backup, but as a starter he has a limited ceiling. He’d be a short-term replacement at best, and a starting quarterback for a team not trying to make the postseason. That’s not the norm in Pittsburgh. Steelers may go with Mason Rudolph as Big Ben replacementPer Steelers insider Mark Kaboly, Steelers fans should get used to the idea of Rudolph as a starting quarterback. Say what you want to say about Mason Rudolph, he is their best option next year as we sit here today. I dont think the draft or free agency will change that. — Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly) December 30, 2021 Best…option? With Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson potentially...
    The Kansas City Chiefs finally got some good news on the COVID-19 front, as Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce may be able to play against the Steelers. With just a day until kickoff, the Chiefs could have two of Patrick Mahomes’ favorite weapons back in time to play the Steelers. Pittsburgh’s secondary possesses two ballhawks in cornerback Joe Haden and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Despite Mahomes’ All-Pro ability, facing a pass-rush that includes T.J. Watt along with a tough secondary wouldn’t have been easy without his top weapons. On Sunday, Mahomes could have both Hill and Kelce cleared to play. The former has been cleared to play, but Kelce remains up in the air. Travis Kelce still is expected to take multiple COVID tests by tomorrow but Chiefs expect to get an answer Sunday morning as to whether their tight end can play vs. the Steelers. https://t.co/sP5zosUNYW — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 25, 2021 Patrick Mahomes reacted to the news in kind. ????✌???? — Patrick Mahomes II (@PatrickMahomes) December 25, 2021 Chiefs look to hold on to top spot in...
    Getty Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce is one of several recent Chiefs players to test positive for COVID-19. Kelce, along with kicker Harrison Butker and cornerback Charvarius Ward were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, December 20, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Chiefs’ TE Travis Kelce is being placed on the Reserve/COVID list, sources tell ESPN. But he is vaccinated so there’s a chance he’s back for Sunday with the new return-to-play protocols. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 20, 2021    
    Ben Roethlisberger is all set to miss Week 10 for the Pittsburgh Steelers and he’s not expected to play next weekend either.  When the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Detroit Lions this weekend, all eyes will be on Mason Rudolph? Indeed they will, as Ben Roethlisberger has tested positive for COVID-19 and he’ll be out of action for this one. The Roethlisberger news of course is a bummer, as the veteran signal-caller reported symptoms to the team and tested positive for COVID soon after. Per NFL insider Jay Glazer, though, it’s not just Week 10 that Roethlisberger will be missing. Jay Glazer just said on @NFLonFOX that he doesn’t see Big Ben playing next week either. Wow. — Andrew Fillipponi (@ThePoniExpress) November 14, 2021 Ben Roethlisberger is expected to miss multiple weeks due to COVID Clearly Roethlisberger is struggling a bit after testing positive. The fact that the Steelers believe he’ll miss at least two games lets you know how serious things are. With that said, Roethlisberger will now look to rest and get himself back to 100 percent before...
    Getty Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool is expected to "miss some time" due to injury. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool will “miss some time” due to his toe injury. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Steelers receiver did not suffer a season-ending injury against the Chicago Bears in Week 9. However, the toe injury will lead to Claypool being evaluated on a “week-to-week” basis. “Some relatively good news for #Steelers WR Chase Claypool: His toe injury is not considered season-ending,” says Rapoport. “There was some fear of that originally, but he’s now considered week-to-week, source said. May miss some time, but will be back.” The severity of Claypool’s injury wasn’t learned until following the game on Monday when head coach Mike Tomlin indicated the receiver was being evaluated for a toe injury. On Tuesday, Tomlin revealed Claypool would undergo an MRI to reveal just how serious his toe injury is. For the season, Claypool has 29 receptions for 433 yards and one touchdown. With the 23-year-old receiver likely out of the mix for this...

On Wednesday, the Denver Broncos received the good news that starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is feeling better as he moves through the league’s concussion protocol. #Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater is progressing through the concussion protocol and feeling better, but not expected to practice today, source said. Drew Lock will take the first team reps. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 6, 2021 Bridgewater suffered this concussion in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Despite not practicing on Wednesday, there’s still optimism Bridgewater could be ready to make the trip to Pittsburgh and start against the Steelers.Teddy Bridgewater feeling better for Broncos before Steelers gameAfter joining the Broncos this offseason, Bridgewater beat out third-year quarterback Drew Lock to be named as the starting quarterback.

Contract or no contract, it appears that T.J. Watt is ready to take the field against the Buffalo Bills. The status of the Pittsburgh Steelers edge rusher had been in limbo just days ahead of the season opener, with Watt showing up to training camp but not practicing with teammates as he pushed for a new deal. With just days left to get the deal done before the team shut down talks, it appears that Watt is ready to rejoin his teammates and is now on track to play against the Bills.

    Joe Schobert’s wife broke the news of the veteran linebacker’s trade from the Jaguars to the Steelers with an awesome message to Pittsburgh fans. The Steelers just picked up a veteran linebacker in Joe Schobert from the Jaguars. Schobert will come in and immediately strengthen Pittburgh’s linebacker corps while helping to replace second-leading tackler Vince Williams, who retired after last season. Pairing up with Devin Bush means the Steelers shouldn’t have to worry at inside linebacker for the foreseeable future. As for what the Jaguars will get back in return, that has yet to be revealed. Next: Steelers fans are worried about Najee Harris
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – Steelers linebacker Devin Bush is weighing in on the news of Tim Tebow’s NFL return. “Tebow got a job before kaepernick.

The league-owned network said the deal “could be official in the next week or so.” The 33-year-old Tebow would be returning to the NFL after four years (2016-19) in the New York Mets’ organization and he’d be playing for Urban Meyer for the first time since his senior year in 2009.

    Getty Images Head coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts to the fans as he walks onto the field before a game against the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on December 08, 2019. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is fast approaching retirement, as is longtime Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. But it now seems a certainty that head coach Mike Tomlin will be around long after Roethlisberger and Colbert are gone. On Tuesday the team announced that the Steelers have signed Tomlin to a three-year contract extension. “I am pleased to announce we have extended Mike Tomlin’s contract through the 2024 season,” said Steelers President Art Rooney II in a statement. “Mike is one of the most successful head coaches in the National Football League, and we are confident in his leadership to continue to lead our team as we work to win another championship.” ALL the latest Steelers news straight to your inbox!

    (Dylan Buell/Getty Images Rashaad Coward of the Chicago Bears warms up during training camp on September 02, 2020. On Monday Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers are planning to sign former Chicago Bears lineman Rashaad Coward to a contract in free agency. But if you were on NFL Reddit or Steelers Reddit this past weekend, you already had an inkling that Coward might be headed to Pittsburgh. On Saturday a Reddit user with the handle ProbationOfficer2035 posted a thread about a “Possible trade coming between the Bears and Steelers.” After self-identifying as a Green Bay Packers fan, said Reddit user indicated he had been playing Call of Duty: Warzone online “with randoms” and ended up with a female teammate. “She had her mic on and I could hear her husband talking in the background about a ‘deal.’ Then something was said about he would love to play in Pittsburgh. I tried to ask the girl for info but she felt a bit awkward when I asked if she could tell me who her...
    Jason Miller/Getty Images Tyson Alualu #94 and Chris Wormley #95 of the Pittsburgh Steelers celebrate after Wormley's sack against Baker Mayfield of the Cleveland Browns on January 03, 2021. Last night the news broke that Tyson Alualu has signed a two-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, a truly shocking revelation considering that it was little more than ten days ago when Aluala decided to “return to where it all started” and agreed to sign a two-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network/NFL.com was first to report Alualu’s change of heart. Apparently, testing positive for COVID-19 delayed Alualu’s planned trip to Jacksonville, which provided him time to reconsider. Predictably, Alualu’s fellow Steelers teammates reacted with jubilation upon hearing the news that Tyson will be back for 2021 and 2022. Steelers outside linebacker T.J.

    Despite almost going back to the team that drafted him, defensive tackle Tyson Alualu spurns the Jacksonville Jaguars to stick with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a two-year deal. Tyson Alualu backs out of his initial deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars to remain with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The former Cal standout had been a former No. 10 overall pick by the Jaguars in the 2010 NFL Draft. Alualu spent his first seven NFL seasons in Jacksonville uniform. He woefully for Pittsburgh ahead of the 2017 NFL season where he had spent the last four years with the Steelers. But with a change of heart, Alualu will not be heading back to Duval County in 2021, and is signing a two-year deal to stay in the Steel City. After initially agreeing to terms with the #Jaguars, veteran DE Tyson Alualu had a change of heart and now is re-signing with the #Steelers on a two-year deal, per sources. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 27, 2021 Tyson Alualu’s free-agency maneuver only adds to this underrated rivalryThough the Jaguars have not done a ton of winning in...
    After being over the projected salary cap this offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers are now under it after Ben Roethlisberger’s new deal. Don’t call it a comeback. Or even a discount. Still, Ben Roethlisberger’s new deal is helping the Pittsburgh Steelers stay competitive in what could be his last year come the 2021 season. Previously looking at a comical cap hit of more than $41 million for Roethlisberger, the two sides agreed to a revised deal which will pay Big Ben $14 million, lowering his total cap hit by more than $15 million. The catch is Roethlisberger getting a cash payment through 2022, which means he’ll still get checks even though in all likelihood he won’t be on the team. We have signed QB Ben Roethlisberger to a new contract for 2021. — Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) March 4, 2021 Why did the Steelers bring Ben Roethlisberger back on this deal?We’ve seen contracts like this before, as it’s similar to what the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees have done.

    (Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images) The Steelers missed on J.J. Watt but still need to add a pass-rusher. Here are three free agents Pittsburgh can sign to fill that void.  Pittsburgh’s alarming lack of cap space always made the idea of landing J.J. Watt a far-fetched notion. That doesn’t change the reality for Mike Tomlin that he still needs to add another edge-rusher this offseason. Bud Dupree’s free agency complicates matters for Pittsburgh. In a perfect world, they’d re-sign him to a team-friendly deal and move on to other pressing roster issues. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Dupree is in the mood to offer a hometown discount. It’s always possible the Steelers will look to the draft to fill the need. That certainly represents a more cost-effective option than spending sizeable money in free agency. Expecting a rookie to contribute immediately is a big risk though. That’s why Steelers fans should keep a close eye on the following three free agents in the coming weeks.3.

The news was not unexpected, but it was delivered in a very 2021 way. On Friday, recently-retired Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster released a statement on his Twitter account announcing that longtime Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, 32, has decided to retire after 11 years in the NFL.

    Doug Pensinger/Staff Jerome Bettis #36 of the Pittsburgh Steelers leaps over teammate Tim Lester #34 during a game at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh in 1997. On Tuesday Pittsburgh Steelers fans and the NFL community at-large learned the sad news that former Steelers fullback Tim Lester has passed away at the age of 52. Within hours, former teammates and other former NFL players took to social media to express their condolences, including former Steelers safety Mike Logan and Hall of Fame running back Jerome ‘The Bus’ Bettis, who posted the following heartfelt message on his Instagram account: “Tim, you were more than my Fullback, you were my brother. You paved the way for me. I can’t express how much I am going to miss you. My condolences go out to Natalie, your beautiful children, and the entire Lester family. May you rest in peace and power. Bettis went on to tag the post with Lester’s jersey number—No. 34—as well as #thebusdriver, the latter a reference to Lester’s nickname, which he earned blocking for Bettis as a member...
    Cleveland defeats Pittsburgh in the wild card round of the NFL American Conference ▲ The Cafés prevailed 48-37 and disqualified the favorites Steelers.Foto . From the Editorial Office La Jornada newspaperMonday, January 11, 2021, p. a31 It was useless for Pittsburgh to reach the wild card round of the NFL American Conference as a favorite. The Cleveland Browns had no mercy against the Steelers and beat them from top to bottom 48-37. Cleveland now goes next week in a Conference Division Series game against the defending Super Bowl champs, the Kansas City Chiefs. With two decades without a postseason presence, the Browns arrived determined to make it clear that they are here with well-deserved reasons. The first quarter they signed a playoff record by scoring 28 points against a torn steel curtain. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a bloody Sunday and 14 seconds into the game they had received the first touchdown of what would be their loss. An error by Maurkice Puncey was recovered by Karl Joseph to make way for the Browns’ first touchdown....
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It’s been quite the year! The coronavirus pandemic dominated the headlines in 2020, but there have been other big stories to start the decade. Here’s a look back at some of the stories that made headlines in Pittsburgh this year. _________________________________________________________________________________________ STEELERS GO 11-0 (Photo Credit: Joe Sargent/Getty Images) In a season put into upheaval thanks to COVID-19 worries, the Steelers managed to go 11-0 before being defeated in Week 13 by the Washington Football Team. The winning streak served as a good distraction for fans as the pandemic worsened into the fall. For 12 weeks, the Steelers chased perfection. The Steelers would defeat the Giants, Broncos, Texans, Eagles, Browns, Titans, Ravens, Cowboys, Bengals, and Jaguars en route to a 11-0 start. A quick and hot start did not come without adversity. A COVID-19 outbreak among the Tennessee Titans forced the team to have its bye week moved to Week 4 rather than Week 7. That didn’t faze the Steelers, winning 27-24. Following the game against the Titans, JuJu Smith-Schuster shared a copy of a letter from...
    Derek Watt appeared to be knocked out cold after a hit to the head on “Monday Night Football.” Players around him took a knee, although Watt eventually walked off the field with some help.  Watt was quickly entered into concussion protocol, per the Steelers, and ruled out for the game at halftime. But tweets both from Watt and his older brother, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, later confirmed that things were looking OK for Derek after the scary initial scene. The tweet from J.J. below was sent out during the game, soon after Derek’s injury. Worst feeling you can ever have watching a football game. Sounds like he’s going to be alright thankfully.

    New York Giants: Good news and bad news in dissapointing loss to Pittsburgh Steelers By: Alexander Wilson September 14, 2020 ShareShareTweetThe New York Giants entered their week one matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers as a significant underdog, and it turned out that way on Monday night. The Giants lost 26-16 to the superior team, and that was known going into the contest. With a strong defensive front and secondary, Pittsburgh managed to limit them to 279 yards through the air and just 29 total yards on the ground. Running back Saquon Barkley was completely shut down, despite totaling 60 yards as a receiver. Nonetheless, the Giants did show some positives in the game. Good news and bad news for the New York Giants: GOOD NEWS: While some saw this result as a disappointment, the Giants remained competitive until the fourth quarter.

The former Notre Dame standout has indeed been one of the many bright spots for Mike Tomlin leading up to the season. A second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Claypool is performing so well, many out there expect him to be an immediate playmaker for the Pittsburgh offense. It goes without saying, but this is incredible news for veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Chase Claypool is getting rave reviews from the media, coaches and teammates.
