Yeah I wont be shocked if Burns is cut....At this point I expect it.

With the Steelers smaller inside linebackers I expect the Steelers keep more bigs

I think both Fort and Bostic saw the writing on the wall and explains why they both are gone. I agree with both Smith and Gilbert making the team. Both could be outstanding on ST's from day 1. ILB is a bit shaky still with VWill, Barron and Matakevich as "penciled" in starters. I think they keep 5 ILB's. So, there's a very slim/outside chance they sign a tryout player or FA. Matakevich is on the roster for another year.

Looks like the Steelers issued the #84 jersey to a tryout player. A TE. Milan Richard from Clemson. 6'3 255 blocking TE with good hands.

Well, it didn’t take long to hand out that no. 84 jersey. It’s a mite bigger this year... #Steelers #rookieminicamp https://twitter.com/AKinkhabwala/status ... oodline%2F


Nix does his job good enough to warrant a roster spot. I asked the same question last several years about Heyward-Bey. Same shit different player.

He is the 53rd man on my roster.
Special Teams kept him on my roster.

Is Jake McGee still an option at te or has the team moved on because of his achilles injury?

Trust me I wanted to put Milan Richard from Clemson there....I think he has a real chance to make the team. He is a great run blocker. He can play fullback H Back or TE and he was a special teams stud for Clemson

The way Grant catches in traffic? Call it NFL open! I love to watch WR's high point the ball..., again, in traffic. Seems like all this kid does is catch the pass and make plays. Of course I realize it's a highlight reel. Just gives them an awesome foundation to build on IMHO. I know it's a long shot but, I hope this kid makes the team.

Lolley was saying he thinks they might have to cut Burns to sign all the rookies. Take it for what it's worth.

I would love for the Steelers to cut Burns like as soon as possible. To me they need to clean house of these malcontents, head cases, etc.

To me there was a pretty long list of characters on this team that were creating this toxic culture, dragging the team down.

Bryant. Brown. Bell. Everybody knows their stories.

Marcus Gilbert, he was unhappy with his contract that he signed in good faith and was openly talking about how he was deserving of more money, then he gets suspended for PEDs and misses more time to injury. They traded him.

Morgan Burnett, was used in Green Bay as a hybrid S/LB, the Steelers signed him in good faith and said that is how they wanted to use him. He can barely stay on the field and then shoots his mouth off that he is not being used properly, that he did not want to be this dime backer, etc. Then he requests that they cut him. Whatever. Steelers release him after finding no trade partners.

Eli Rogers. He broke curfew and then was held out of the game as punishment. He followed Brown around like a puppy dog, probably picked up a lot of bad habits on how he conducts himself off the field. His play on the field has been awful the past two seasons. 50% catch rate in 2017? 6.6 yards per catch in 2018?

Finally, Artie Burns. Easily gets his buttons pushed on the field, giving up penalties. Then talks of how he already has CTE symptoms. Has developed an aversion to contact, goes out of his way to avoid making a hard tackle.

Piss on all of these players. If you don't want to be a Pittsburgh Steeler, don't want to buy in, don't want to win a championship, then fuck you!! I applaud the Steelers for getting rid of all of these losers, the Artie Burns and Eli Rogers cuts can't come soon enough.

The Steelers have signed their No. 1 draft choice, inside linebacker Devin Bush, to the largest rookie contract they have ever awarded — a four-year deal worth $18.872 million.

Bush, the 10th overall selection in the draft, will receive a signing bonus of $11,744,920 and annual salaries of $495,000 in 2019, $1,352,808 in 2020, $2,210,616 in 2021 and $3,068,424 in 2020.

Bush is the highest drafted player by the Steelers since receiver Plaxico Burress was the eighth overall selection in 2000.

Bush is the eighth of the Steelers’ nine draft picks to sign a contract. The only one left is cornerback Justin Layne, the second of their third-round picks. He is expected to sign shortly. https://www.post-gazette.com/sports/ste ... GSportsNow

I don't think it's a coincidence that these are all Tomlin's guys. .
When did you ever hear about ANY of this shit during Cowher's reign? The biggest dust up was Hines Ward sitting out and his beef with Ben.
