Hey-Bey is unsigned, right?

I hope we get to see Dree Henderson and Palka compete for a job. That might be a very healthy competition.


Bey appeared on the roster on Steelers.com, which had all the rookies and FA's with correct numbers, so I assumed it was up to date. I didn't think he was being paid, either; but, then again, the RFA's aren't exactly making a ton, either, at this point.

And, particularly after looking at the video, will be a fun competition. They bring different sets of skills to the table, for sure. Bill Parcells would refer to this as a a pet cat fight.

I'm pulling for the PSACer. Funny name though. Especially playing in Pittsburgh. Better make sure he is who he says he is and this isnt a Leon Sandcastle thing.

Tyler Palka? Palko? I can only assume there is a Tyler Palke out there somewhere.

Yes. I can only imagine when he introduces himself to people around the city there will be some double takes and "say agains" Tyler Palko isn't exactly a common name and he was about as big a name as it gets in HS football and then playing at Pitt (not for all the same reasons).

49-O Scotland-Williamson, Christian TE 6-9 274 R Loughborough U.

That's a big TE

It turns out that he is a rugby player from the UK. Should be interesting to watch.

I read somewhere that the steelers have taken rugby players twice before. Neither made the team.

You should see the D3 and NAIA guys.

Actually, I'll bet Gannon, on average, played vs better players than the Ivy league guys do. Ivy League is technically higher division, but... yikes.

Maybe it's just the picture, but man it looks like Edmunds has some long ass arms, for a Safety.

Terrell Edmunds is 2 inches shorter than Rashaan Evans but has arms that are 1/2' longer, 32 3/4".

And, if memory serves, probably close to a 10"+ better vert.

Yeah, Edmunds had a 41.5 inch vertical and Evans only managed a 30 inch.

I still contend that he (Evans) is not in the same class of say a Mosley, and I think he is much slower, I think he is a 4.75 guy, and those groin injuries don't help with that. I just really don't see him as being that much of an upgrade over even a Vince Williams. I hear people say, well, hey Evans has talent as a pass rusher, so what? Vince Williams had 8 sacks last season. What we needed was a fast ILB who can play sideline to sideline, not another pedestrian ILB like Williams or Spence where their lack of speed becomes an issue.

I would even venture to say that, before (horrific) injury, Spence was better at what we needed from that position at Miami than Evans was at Alabama.
