Reporting Andrew Fillipponi
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – A lot of fans, media, and apparently teammates were critical of Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley last season.
The Fan’s Andrew Fillipponi does not think that the ineffectiveness can be traced to a particular injury late in the season. Guest Ed Bouchette, of the Post-Gazette, says that Woodley’s size could have something to do with the poor play.
But Woodley will likely use the experience to his benefit.
“Human nature would tell you that it has to be [motivational],” Bouchette said.
The hamstring tweak suffered by top pick Jarvis Jones is not a big deal, according to Bouchette, as long as it does not linger. Rest is the best remedy and it was wise of the coaches to mandate this strategy.
Attendance at the mini-camp has been high. The only players missing have been the injured Heath Miller and Sean Spence, as well as Markus Wheaton who is still in class at Oregon State.
Brian Moorman and Drew Butler are the punters in camp. Moorman is an 11-year vet and is likely to get the starting gig.
