CHARLOTTE, N.C. (93-7 THE FAN) — Head coach Mike Tomlin looks to avoid a winless preseason, but, more importantly, also looks to pare his roster down to the mandatory 53 players after the Steelers meet the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium at 7:30 on KDKA-TV.
Here’s a look at some sleepers that could pay dividends in your fantasy league.
If this is the end, Mr. Plaxico Burress, thanks. Thanks for always being a story.
Former Seaton-La Salle wide receiver Joe DelSardo had dreams of playing in the NFL, until drug addiction derailed his plans.
Former Woodland Hills High School and University of Michigan standout Steve Breaston could end up in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform.
In back to back years, the Steelers could see Hines Ward and Mike Wallace leave Pittsburgh. That would leave Antonio Brown as the last star receiver on the team, and it’s a role that he doesn’t take lightly.
The Steelers end their season this Sunday at Heinz Field against the Cleveland Browns. A playoff run is gone, but avoiding a losing season, not to mention pride, is still on the line.
Plaxico Burress visited with Joe Starkey about the playoff push and the young wide receivers.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — It’s a contract year for Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace, but alas, on some level, a forgettable one, punctuated by the fact he may see more limited playing time when they meet the Ravens Sunday.
It’s Ravens’ week once again, and the Steelers are making some changes to their lineup. Head Coach Mike Tomlin demoted two star players on Tuesday who seem to be taking it in stride, and we’re still waiting to see if there will be a change at quarterback.
HE’S BACK!!! Former first-round pick Plaxico Burress is back in the black and gold for the first time since the 2004 season. Let’s refresh our memory of Burress and take a look at where Plax has been since leaving Pittsburgh.
There are two new faces on the Steelers’ roster. One of them, however, is pretty familiar to Steelers fans.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — With Antonio Brown out for Monday night’s game against visiting Kansas City (1-7), and, unfortunately, perhaps longer, head coach Mike Tomlin has given the “next man up” nod to backup receiver Jerricho Cotchery not just on offense, but on special teams too.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Steelers receiver Mike Wallace doesn’t believe a summer-long holdout has affected his ability to understand and execute the content of new offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s playbook.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Redshirt junior wide receiver Devin Street, undeterred by a sprained MCL that sidelined him early in training camp, will be ready for action when Pitt opens the 2012 season against Youngstown State at Heinz Field Saturday.
