  • Born: 04/09/76

  • Weight: 298

Steelers sign Tuitt to four-year deal

All nine of the Steelers draft picks are now under contract.

The 'young Aaron Smith'

Tuitt may wear Smith's number, but to his coach John Mitchell, his play resembles Smith's as well

Being the best Steve he can be

The fact Steve McLendon was primed to be the first Steelers nose tackle not named Hampton or Hoke to start a game in a decade was unavoidable. But he added weight, and is taking it upon himself to shed those expectations, in 2014.

Tuitt to wear No. 91 for Steelers

Steelers second round pick Stephon Tuitt will wear the number of one of the franchise's great players. We should remember Smith for his greatness on and off the field, but let Tuitt become his own player.

It might be wise to invest low in defensive end

Given what the Steelers ask of their defensive ends coming out of college (unlearn what they know and learn the "Steeler Way" of playing defense), is it ever wise for the team to pick one in Round 1, like it did with Ziggy Hood and Cam Heyward?

Keisel pushed himself to be healthy

Steelers DE Brett Keisel could be heading into his final two games as a Steelers. If that's the case, writes BTSC's Dale Grdnic, he's going to do everything he can to stay on the field.

Brett Keisel was right Steelers not ready to play

How many more games will it take the Steelers coaches to get the players ready to play? After eight games, the Steelers give up over three times the number of points they score in the first quarter alone.

Brown earning his contract after practice

The Steelers gave Antonio Brown a big contract extension after just two seasons with the team, partly because he was the team's MVP in 2011, but, as Kevin Colbert noted, he has a strong work ethic. He's passing what he knows on to J.D. Woods.

Fans may be witnessing a changing of the guard at defensive end in 2013 as a beloved aging veteran showed up ready for one last ride, while his young understudy set out to prove he is ready to take the wheel.

Aaron Smith returns to Steelers

Even though the former defensive end is no longer physically capable of competing on the field, the team has found a way to utilize his experience and knowledge.

Transforming from Hood to Good

Steelers 2009 first round pick Ziggy Hood is working hard on technique, the piece that seems missing from his overall body of work.

Nick Williams proves it's who you know

Nick Williams, the Steelers' seventh round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, shows loads of potential, but he might be somewhere else if not for a slew of connections that brought him to Pittsburgh.
