James Farrior may announce retirement soon

Getty Images
It appears as though long time Pittsburgh Steeler James Farrior will announce his retirement shortly, according to his agent, Ralph Cindrich. Farrior was cut by the Steelers earlier this year after a decade of being their defensive captain, and while he hasn’t fully decided yet to retire, he has been in talks with the Steelers regarding a possible news conference.
At 37 years old, it is hard to believe any offers are coming his way from other teams, despite the incredible career he has had. Retirement seems to be the logical next step, the only next step, and we should hear soon if that is the path he decides to take.

Steelers Figure To Have David DeCastro Under Contract Soon

I posted recently about what likely was the hold up on the Pittsburgh Steelers getting first round draft pick David DeCastro under contract. Now it seems like the logjam ahead of DeCastro is starting to move thanks to the New England Patriots drawing the line in the sand this past week with their first round pick Chandler Jones, the 21st overall selection this past April.

Jones deal was for the mandated four-years, but only three years of it is guaranteed. The theory is that DeCastro and his agent were waiting to see just how far down the four year guaranteed deals fell, and with Jones being Read more [...]

Mike Wallace doesn’t plan on signing his tender anytime soon

Jared Wickerham/Getty Images North America
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace isn’t going to sign his restricted free agent tender anytime soon.
“Not going to sign that restricted free agent tender anytime soon. May be awhile before they see Wallace,” said Schefter.
I’d be surprised if Wallace even shows up for the start of training camp.  He’s looking for the Steelers to lock him up with a lucrative long-term deal.  The only problem is that they don’t have a lot of cap room to work with right now.

James Harrison decision could come as soon as today

On Wednesday, former NFL assistant coach (and UFL head coach) Ted Cottrell conducted the hearing on Steelers linebacker James Harrison’s appeal of his one-game suspension for the latest violation of the league’s rules regarding hits on defenseless players.  Since the recent ruling on Ndamukong Suh’s appeal came a day after the hearing held by Hall…

Harrison to Find Out Soon if a Suspension is Coming

If the NFL decides to suspend Steelers OLB James Harrison for his hit on Browns QB Colt McCoy in Thursday night’s 14-3 win in Pittsburgh, it will not be a decision that the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year agrees with.

“I don’t think a suspension is worthy,” Harrison said Monday. “I don’t think it’s worthy of anything, but that’s just my own personal thoughts.”

Harrison should find out soon if he’ll get suspended and/or fined for his helmet-to-helmet roughing the passer hit, one that sent the QB to the bench with what now is being called a concussion in the Steelers 11-point win.

Harrison says rightly so that McCoy left the pocket, rendering him fair game as a ballcarrier. McCoy actually stopped to pass the ball on the play.

“Well, he took off running with it, and at the last second he, like, chucked and ducked,” Harrison said.

McCoy briefly left the game, a controversy in itself as his father felt the Browns neglected to properly assess him for a concussion. The team said symptoms didn’t manifest themselves until the game was over.

As for Harrison, he’s use to seeing his pocket book get slapped for hits. Last season he drew $ 100,000 worth of fines for hits during the regular season.

“I feel like he’s trying to put people out of the game,” Browns WR/KR Josh Cribbs, a teammate of Harrison’s at Kent State, said Monday. “As a linebacker, that’s what his job is. That’s how he’s been in college, he tried to put me out of the game when I was on his team, with a red jersey on. That’s why he’s been so successful in this league. That’s also why he’s been highly fined in this league as well, but also successful.”

Could The Steelers Play A Game In Ireland Soon? Dan Rooney Hopes So

The NFL might be playing a regular season in Ireland in the near future in attempt to spread the reach of the game further, but the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely not be playing in that game if it involves losing a home game. It was reported today that the league has moved a step closer to playing a game at Ireland after a NFL delegation inspected Croke Park, a prime location in central Dublin with a tradition that is steeped in history. US Ambassador to Ireland and Steelers president Dan Rooney is a prime player in this game taking place in Ireland and reportedly the delegation is happy with Read more [...]Could The Steelers Play A Game In Ireland Soon?
