Don't know about the rest of you, but this is exactly the kind of guy the Steelers need on their roster. Guy that has busted his butt to get back into an NFL game. No sense of entitlement, no young money, just pure passion to play in a grown man's game. If he can make it back, I could see where Spence could emerge as a future leader of the defense. A guy that knows how to put in the work, a guy that would appreciate what life has given him.
I'm elated with the news, and I wish Spence the best in his return.
This great news. Also, I thought Vince Williams had a solid game today... so maybe we won't have to rush spence to get back on the field.
yea buddy. he is playing with more confidence. we may have found a steal with this 6th round pick
Spence will need the DL to actually occupy blockers in order to be as effective as he can be, because he is neither big or fast.
What he is, is instinctual. He sniffs out the runner, or the whole in the OL & gets himself in the right spot to make a play. But if he has to take on 320lb OG's, he's going to look bad.
And that won't be his fault, necessarily.
Williams looks good for a 1st year, 6th round choice. The fact he is on the field & contributing at this stage shows a level of comfort from the coaching staff.
