With no increase expected in the 2013 NFL salary cap, the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely see many of their most recognized and fan favored players on different teams or retired following the final regular season game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, December 30. Fans who are already depressed about the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals may be looking at even more tough times ahead.
Cornerback Cortez Allen made a big statement in the Sunday loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Garnering his first two career interceptions in his young NFL career in a single game has insiders and fans standing up and taking notice.
Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis has become an explosive part of the defense, but his off-field actions have set just as many examples of what a humble, intelligent and honest man can do regardless of where he grew up.
Kelvin L. Beachum, Jr. may be a rookie with little experience in the National Football League, but on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens he showed that not only does he have great potential, but also an incredible work ethic and strong beliefs. Beachum’s play helped resurrect the hopes of the Pittsburgh Steelers to get to the playoffs in 2012, and maybe even further.
‘Steeler Nation’ recognizes defensive end Brett Keisel by his size, his on-field play and his red beard. While Keisel has been an outstanding member of the Pittsburgh Steelers team, he has also been an outstanding member of the Pittsburgh-area community.
