    No movement on new contract for Joe Haden

    Posted by Josh Alper on July 1, 2019, 1:34 PM EDT

    There was word during the offseason program that Steelers cornerback Joe Haden was looking for an extension as he enters the final year of the three-year contract he signed with the team in 2017.

    Such a deal does not appear to be on the front burner for the team, however. Haden’s agent Drew Rosenhaus told Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com that nothing is happening in regard to talks concerning a new deal.

    An extension that lowers Haden’s 2019 cap number could be useful as the NFLPA’s daily cap calculations have the Steelers with less than $985,000 in cap space at the moment, but the team may prefer to see how Haden does as a 30-year-old before committing to anything beyond this year.

    Lolley also points out that safety Sean Davis and cornerback Mike Hilton, who has not signed his exclusive rights free agent tender, are also looking for new contracts. Both are also represented by Rosenhaus, so there will likely be contact between agent and team on one matter or another in the coming weeks.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Seems Mr Rosenhaus has his clench firmly around the Steelers balls....

    Just the way he likes it (not speaking from personal knowledge)

    What options do we have in dealing with Rosenhaus? I consider him an enemy to our empire.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    Rosenhaus is doing the job he gets paid for. He may be a jerk but he wouldn't have the players in his stable that he does if he wasn't good at what he does.

    Yeah, Rosenhaus is neither an enemy nor a friend to our team or any team for that matter. He only cares about getting top dollar for the guys he represents...that's what they pay him for, after all. Just like any other agent out there. Agents are akin to lawyers in general terms...folks tend to view them both as typically loathesome bloodsucker types...until you need one, of course. Except for phillyesq, of course...he's cool.

    He and AB cooked up a plan to break his contract; and we gave him a state of the art contract at the time and just because others came along and past AB in money, didn’t justify their actions. That stunt shows that Rosenhaus feels he can do anything he wants at anytime because he’s client gets passed up by another player at that position.

    So the end justifies the means?

    There are ways to go about your business that doesn't involve denigrating your employer or their employees.

    I sincerely hope the Steelers learned their lesson and get rid of malcontents as soon as their stripes are showing.

    Rookie linebacker Devin Bush will lead the Steelers in tackles in 2019

    By Simon Chester
    Jul 4, 2019

    With 21 days to go until the start of training camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers, we continue our 30 prediction in 30 days series with another bold claim for 2019.

    Alternating daily between myself and BTSC Editor Jeff Hartman, we will offer our predictions for the upcoming season. Some will be team oriented, while others will be specific to individual players. Posing an argument for and against our predictions, we invite you to weigh in on the debate as well.

    Following on from Jeffís claim that Mike Tomlin will be successful with three replay challenges in 2019 on Wednesday, I turn my attention toward the Steelers No.1 draft pick this year

    Prediction: Rookie linebacker Devin Bush will lead the Steelers in tackles in 2019

    Why it will happen: As the teamís highest draft pick since the selection of Plaxico Burress with the eighth overall pick in 2000, there are plenty of reason to be optimistic about the potential of Devin Bush this year. And seemingly on a fast track to be the starter at inside linebacker with the almost instant release of Jon Bostic after his selection, there is every reason to believe that the rookie will open the season at the top of the depth chart.

    For the second year in a row, safety Sean Davis was the defensive leader in tackles in 2018 with 80 combined stops, a figure that would have barely cracked the top three in any of the previous 11 seasons. And prior to 2017, Ryan Clark was the only non-linebacker to lead the team in tackles in the Tomlin era when he recorded 100 combined tackles in 2001. In each of the nine other seasons, the title was taken linebacker, and specifically an inside linebacker with the exception of James Harrison in 2007.

    Winning the title in Pittsburgh has traditionally required a total well over 100, a feat achieve by Lawrence Timmons in 2016 - 114, 2015 - 119, 2014 - 139, 2013 - 126 and 2010 - 135, with the off years in between claimed by Larry Foote in 2012 - 113 and the aforementioned season from Clark. James Farrior would take the title in 2009 - 102 and 2008 - 133.

    These numbers highlight a downward trend from the linebackers group over the past few seasons, in large part because of the loss of Ryan Shazier who was expected to follow the path laid down by Timmons. It is also worth noting that the year the linebacker was hurt in 2017 was a season he finished second on the team in tackles behind Davis by one, this despite missing the last four games of the year.

    With the arrival of a true three-down linebacker in Bush, there is every reason to believe that the former Michigan product can achieve something that Vince Williams (76) and Jon Bostic (73) failed to do last season. While both players found themselves substituted at times on passing downs, that is unlikely to be the case for the more athletic Bush. And for a player who recorded 95 tackles during his second season in college in just 13 games, it is clear that he has the capacity to improve on those numbers in the NFL.

    Fellow first-round draft pick Terrell Edmunds was far from perfect during his rookie season, but he was only 3 tackles away from leading the team. And if he can record 78 tackles in a season, it can only be imagined the numbers Bush could produce through 16 games.

    Why it wonít happen: A rookie has not led the team in tackles since the NFL first began keeping the statistic consistently in 1994. Since then, perhaps the most notable rookie season of any Pittsburgh linebacker was that of 2003 second round draft Kendrell Bell. Voted Defensive Rookie of the Year, Bell would finish the year with 99 tackles, second to James Farrior with 141. None of the names before or since were even close.

    Asking a rookie to start in Week 1 is enough of a challenge in its own right, but expecting him to lead a veteran defense is quite an ask. Some might also point to second-year safety Edmunds as the one who will take the crown on defense given his numbers during his relatively up and down debut as a starter.
