    Someone mentioned the former Steeler nicknamed Rambo when Dee Dub had Baccari Rambo in his first mock (before he decided to return to school instead of entering this draft), but I forget who it was.

    I remember during the strike season we had a linebacker that was a hard hitter and got the name Rambo. I know a few thought the Steelers/Chuck Noll might have signed him to the team after the strike was over but, it did not happen. In an interview after his time was up here the news man asked him what his future plans were and his comment was, " I don't know for sure but, I think I might like to make Pittsburgh my home because the city and people are very nice. " I remember all that but not the guys name.

    Very good try, but this former Steeler nicknamed "Rambo" did not play linebacker, although he did play defense. He was not a strike player. His biggest game came in the playoffs.
