Running Back Isaac Redman Looking Forward To Chance To Become Number One Running Back

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

Steelers Running Back Isaac Redman joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93.7 The FAN to discuss his season, and his potential future as the Steelers number one running back.

Redman said no disrespect to anyone else, but he views himself as a number one running back and is striving to make sure that happens.  It was his dream as a kid to become a star running back in the NFL, and Redman said he felt a lot of pressure going into the Denver playoff game, but has always played well in those types of situations.

Mike Tomlin has used some tough love tactics with Isaac to motivate him, and he told us what kind of methods Tomlin used and how it worked to motivate him.

Isaac also talked about the team voting Antonio Brown as their MVP, and gave his reasons why he voted for Antonio.

We also talked to Isaac about his offseason plans which include dropping some weight to improve his speed, and he said he’ll be ready for the competition to be the number one running back on the depth chart when camp opens up.

King: Don’t Be Shocked to See Jim Caldwell as the Next Steelers OC

With Bruce Arians gone, there’s a little tidbit in today’s Monday Morning NFL QB from Peter King that points to who he thinks will be the next Steelers offensive coordinator – former Colts coach Jim Caldwell.

Mike Tomlin (secondary) and Jim Caldwell (quarterbacks) coached together at Tampa Bay under Tony Dungy in Dungy’s last season with the Bucs, 2001, if you’re looking for a clue on the next offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh.

Caldwell was dismissed as the Colts head coach last week after the team went 2-14. He led Indy to the Super Bowl in his first season in 2009, the Colts were AFC South champs and lost in the first playoff game in 2010, and were awful this past season without Peyton Manning.

Caldwell joined Tony Dungy’s staff with the Buccaneers in 2001 as quarterbacks coach. He followed Dungy to Indianapolis in 2002 and remained with him for his entire tenure, helping lead the Colts to a win in Super Bowl XLI.

Defense Could Get Beat Up in Free Agency

Look for the Steelers to drop the hammer before March 13 on as many as four players who opened the season as starters according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The defense that yielded the fewest total yards, total points and total yards passing will take the biggest hits all over the next few months.

The Steelers are $ 25 million over the roughly $ 124 million salary cap that will go into effect March 13. That, Steelers president Art Rooney said Tuesday, will call for some tough decisions.

Candidates on defense to be released and their scheduled 2012 salaries that would vanish if they are: Aaron Smith ($ 2.1 million), Bryant McFadden ($ 2.5 million), James Farrior ($ 2.82 million), Casey Hampton ($ 4.89 million), and Larry Foote ($ 3 million).
