    Steelers work out local pair

    According to SteelCityInsider.com, the Steelers worked out Waynesburg University defensive end Mike Czerwien and California University punter Jace Amore after their OTA Thursday.

    The 5-8, 225-pound Czerwien led college football with 23 sacks and 34.5 tackles for loss last season. He finished his career with 53.5 sacks at Waynesburg.

    Obviously, the North Hills High School product would be a linebacker for the Steelers, if they decided to sign him, but no move has been made as of yet.

    Amore was a transfer from Temple. The Elizabeth Forward High School grad averaged 40.1 yards per punt last season.

    The Steelers did not sign a rookie punter for camp behind Daniel Sepulveda following the draft.

    The DE had some crazy stats. Probably too short, but maybe he could become one of those high motor/underdog types that become fan favorites through camp.

    Dude looks tiny.







    Not that it means anything, but Czerwien was featured as one of the "Faces in the Crowd" in the 12-10-07 edition of Sports Illustrated.

    If he has decent speed he might be help for the special teams but he'd have to really shine.

    Signature move is going under the block and tieing the QB's shoes together.

    Sam Mills was pretty short too...he did okay. Hopefully he's good enough & crazy enough to be a special teams terror.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...
