PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette was part of a select group of media which met with Steelers Owner Art Rooney II earlier today, and joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93.7 The FAN to talk about what was said.
Rooney said the Steelers have some serious work to get back under the cap, and Ed told us what that entails, and what players could be casualties of this.
Hines Ward was one of the names that Rooney said he has already spoken with about the issue. Ed’s feeling is that the Steelers are probably trying to talk Hines into retiring, but Hines has given no indication that he’s even considering it.
Ed also discussed the notion that Art Rooney II threw out that Ben Roethlisberger might need to “tweak” his game, and why the team feels that way.
