  Steelers | Shaun Suisham cut    Fri Jun 24, 10:05 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham was released Friday, June 24. PK Chris Boswell enters training camp as the likely starter.

Footballguys view: Boswell was first in the league in field goal attempts and makes per game last year, and he was second to only Stephen Gostkowski in scoring per game. He deserves to go in the top five kickers despite the Steelers hints that they might go for two as much as or more than any team in the league this year.

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham (knee) is expected to able to kick before the start of training camp, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

  Steelers | Three Steelers released    Thu May 5, 10:05 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Abou Toure, PK Ty Long and OT Mike X. Adams were released Thursday, May 5. Adams was released with the designation of a failed physical.

Footballguys view: Adams is the player to highlight here. He missed all of last season with a back injury, and that same injury may be the reason why he was released with a 'failed physical' designation. If healthy, Adams could at least be a swing tackle for some team out there.

  Vikings | Minnesota confident in Blair Walsh    Wed Mar 30, 12:23 AM

The Minnesota Vikings are confident in PK Blair Walsh despite a devastating missed chip-shot 27-yard field goal in the playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks. 'I pretty much move on, but I'm going to try to make sure that he has success as much as possible,' head coach Mike Zimmer said. 'You're always as good as your last kick, right? So we want to make sure that a lot of his kicks are good kicks now.'

Footballguys view: Zimmer backing Walsh is the right thing to do, but Walsh had a rough summer last year and he might be prone to a loss of confidence. The Vikings shouldn't be too patient with Walsh if he struggles early in the regular season.
