    Me neither. I guess Ebron isn't going anywhere nor do I think he should

    Vance always struck me as one of the guys who didn't need football, but was using it as a step in his life plan. Wish him the best

    I wouldn't be surprised if AV also took this route

    This will be an off-season of change.

    All I know is McDonald’s stiff arm on Monday Night Football a couple of seasons ago in TB was sick!

    McDonald is also Steelers nominee for the 2020 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. Every NFL team names a Man of the Year nominee, and they are eligible to be the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year, presented by Nationwide. The award recognizes a player's off-the-field community service, as well as his playing excellence. And McDonald definitely scores in those areas.

    Through his work with Convoy of Hope, McDonald and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger started the Trucks of Hope campaign, with the mission of the campaign to bring individual trucks full of nonperishable food, PPE and cleaning supplies for 1,000 families in Allegheny, Butler and Westmoreland County in the Western Pa. region. Among those they worked with were the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania, who distributed the items to agencies they work with throughout the region.

    Whoa.. I didn’t expect that but not surprised. He always seemed to be dinged up and outside of that brutal stiff arm he really never lived up to the hype.

    Always best to move on when your body is telling you its had enough.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    not sure why people want to move on from Ebron. I thought he played well. I always expected a few drops but he had less than I expected his first year.

    McDonald has been very active in the community. He’s one of the “good guys” that I enjoyed seeing representing our team.
