Roethlisberger & Rest Of Offense Must Now Graduate From Todd Haley University


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***


Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger graduated from Miami (Ohio) University this past week and now he and the rest of the Steelers offense will go to summer school in attempt to graduate from Todd Haley University.

Roethlisberger has not been shy about telling the media types in recent interviews that the offense that new offensive coordinator Todd Haley is installing is pretty foreign to him thus far. He has even made a few references to it as needing a Rosetta Stone book to understand it. Roethlisberger was recently quoted by Ed Bouchette in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette in regard Read more [...]

Steelers Give Wallace a First Round Tender, Original Round Tenders to Rest

Photo

As expected, the Steelers officially gave WR Mike Wallace the high level tender offer of $ 2.7 million for one season, the restricted free agency level allowing the Steelers to receive a first-round draft pick in compensation should Wallace sign with another team.

Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert has said his priority with Wallace is to get him signed to a long-term deal. This is the first step in that process.

Just about all of the Steelers' other restricted free agents - CB Keenan Lewis, Gs Doug Legursky and Ramon Foster, TE David Johnson and FS Ryan Mundy - received original round tender offers, which are worth one year for $ 1.26 million.

Lewis was a third-round selection, Johnson was a seventh and Mundy was a sixth. Legursky and Foster were not drafted, therefore, would carry with them no compensation.

OL Jamon Meredith was not given a tender offer, and is now an unrestricted free agent.

The compensation would deter a team from making a run at Lewis, Mundy or Johnson, and while the lack of compensation for Legursky and Foster - the starting guards currently in Pittsburgh's depth chart - may be attractive for other teams, the Steelers still carry the right of first refusal, meaning they could match any offer given by anyone else. Provided the offer is reasonable, it's likely the Steelers would match it.

It's unlikely another team would offer a multi-year deal to either Legursky or Foster.

It's worth noting teams do not pursue the restricted free agents of other teams very often. The most notable is probably Patriots WR Wes Welker, in 2007, when the Dolphins gave him a second-round tender offer, and the Patriots eventually traded a second round and seventh round pick for Welker. Technically he wasn't signed away from the Dolphins, but the Patriots added the seventh round pick as a way to not let Welker reach the open market.

The lack of movement with restricted free agents is the main reason why the compensation for the high level tender was reduced from a first and a third round pick to just the first in the new collective bargaining agreement.

Wallace is no doubt an attractive option for many teams, but having to give up a first-round pick along with signing Wallace to an offer sheet the Steelers wouldn't match (i.e. it'd likely have to be above his market value) is quite a price to pay. Ideally, the Steelers would like to get Wallace signed to a long-term deal before restricted free agents are allowed to sign offer sheets (March 17).

Woodley Says Hamstring Will Be Issue the Rest of 2011

LaMarr Woodley was back on the playing field for the first time in weeks on Sunday, but didn’t do much, making just one tackle while it was James Harrison getting the spotlight with three sacks.

Woodley said after the game that the hamstring that kept him out the past few games is going to be an issue for the rest of 2011, and into the postseason.

“You’ve got to be smart about the hamstring injuries and can’t play the entire game anyway,” Woodley said after the Steelers’ 35-7 win. “It’s a rotation that’s probably going to be going on the rest of the year.”

Jason Worilds is the backup at left outside linebacker, and gained some important playing time with Woodley on the sidelines.

Woodley said he and Worilds were supposed to basically split the snaps on Sunday, and said that his hammy was tired which is why he was limited for the most part.

“I plan on going out there and playing again on Thursday but you have to take the (cautious) approach,” the LB said.
