    I haven't given up on B. Allen yet. There is talk of trying him at Safety. Hopefully he sticks.

    I haven't either. It amazing how some on here think players like Allen, a 5th rounder, should join the team and immediately play like Daryl Revis. Some players need time to learn and get comfortable.

    He's had a couple of years. If he doesn't show anything more than he has so far, we need to cut him this summer and give someone else a chance.

    Boom.................
    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.

    you mean you're not impressed with Allen's career stats of 3 total tackles, zero forced fumbles, zero passes defensed and zero interceptions?

    For the record, Brian Allen did not make the 53 man roster coming out of camp last year. We cut him as the calendar turned over to September, he cleared waivers, and we added him to the practice squad. He spent a month on our P.S. before we promoted him back onto our active roster in early October.
    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.

    Steelers Sign 2019 Draft Pick, CB Justin Layne

    By Dave Bryan
    Posted on May 30, 2019

    The Pittsburgh Steelers now have their entire 2019 draft class signed as cornerback Justin Layne has now signed his rookie four-year contract as of Thursday afternoon.

    Layne, the Steelers second of two third-round selections this year, was the lone member of this yearís draft class to be unsigned once the team started their annual OTA practices a few weeks ago.

    Layne, an underclassman who converted from wide receiver to cornerback during his 2016 freshman season at Michigan State, measured in at this yearís scouting combine at 6016, 192-pounds with 33-inch arms and 9 1/4-inch hands. He ran his 40-yard-dash in Indianapolis in 4.5-seconds and posted a 37.5-inch vertical jump in addition to an 11í2″ broad jump. His short shuttle time at the combine was 4.09-seconds and his 3-cone time was 6.9-seconds.

    Speculation from Over the Cap is that Layne signed a four-year contract that totals out at around $3,442,184 and include a signing bonus of roughly $922,184. Those numbers provided would result in a 2019 salary cap charge for Layne of $725,546.

    The holdup in getting Layne signed might have been related to offset or guaranteed money language in his contract. Whatever the reason, he and the rest of the Steelers 2019 draft picks are now all signed way before the teamís OTA practices end.

    Last season the Steelers didnít have all of their 2018 draft class signed until July 24 as thatís when first-round selection Terrell Edmunds finally inked his rookie four-year contract.
