  Steelers | Clifton Geathers re-signs    Wed Apr 1, 02:57 PM

Free-agent DE Clifton Geathers (Steelers) was re-signed to a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday, April 1. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Steelers fans didn't get to see anything from Geathers last year. He was signed in December, but he didn't play a snap for the team. This season, Geathers will compete for a backup job behind Cam Heyward and Stephon Tuitt.

  Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey returns    Thu Mar 26, 11:46 AM

Free-agent WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (Steelers) re-signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday, March 26. Heyward-Bey signed a one-year deal with the team, but financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We don't expect Heyward-Bey to do all that much, just as we didn't expect him to do much in his last few landing spots. Behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant, there will be little for him to do and we wouldn't be shocked if he was gone by the end of camp.

  Steelers | James Harrison re-signs    Sun Mar 22, 12:36 PM

Free-agent LB James Harrison (Steelers) signed a two-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, March 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Harrison had to decide between the Titans and the Steelers. He's not what he used to be, but Harrison proved last year that he still had something left in the tank.

  Steelers | Open to re-signing James Harrison    Thu Mar 19, 03:51 PM

Free-agent LB James Harrison (Steelers) is still an option for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the team likely will not try to re-sign him until the summer because they do not need him to participate in offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: The Steelers could use the experience but it's likely Harrison would be in a reduced role due to age. Still the 36-year old linebacker could well contribute quite a bit for one last year. Watch out for the Titans here as well. We could see Harrison following Dick LeBeau to Tennessee.

  Steelers | Dri Archer will have role in offense    Thu Mar 19, 01:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Dri Archer will have a role on offense that will take advantage of his speed, but people have to be patient with his development, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Archer could also be used as a kick returner next season.

Footballguys view: Archer is a very versatile back, but because of his size, that versatility will almost always have to do with speedy routes and screens and never much between the tackles. Assume LeVeon Bell returns to 100 percent, Archer will still be very limited and have inconsistent fantasy value.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant could start in 2015    Wed Mar 18, 04:06 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is expected to push WR Markus Wheaton for the No. 2 wide receiver job during training camp, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley. 'We are looking for him to come in and make a push against Markus Wheaton for that No. 2 spot and continue give us big-time production, specifically in the red area where a big target like that can make a big impact,' Haley said.

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners here. We're excited about Bryant's upside because of his size, wingspan and ability to win at the point of the catch. At the same time, we've also been disappointed by Wheaton's lack of development. He's got the potential to be a better player than what he's shown. We'll see how this battle plays out in training camp.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh to add DeAngelo Williams    Fri Mar 13, 04:16 PM

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Panthers) will sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Williams will serve as the primary backup behind Le'Veon Bell. A good move for the Steelers here. They bounced LeGarrette Blount last year only to have Bell go down with an injury and the offense essentially fall apart.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger signs extension    Fri Mar 13, 03:42 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has agreed to a contract extension with the team. Terms of the extension were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We'll know more when details are released. This contract extension will likely allow Roethlisberger to retire with the Steelers. Coming off a great year in 2014, Roethlisberger's deal was set to expire at the end of this season. It's a good move for both sides.

  Steelers | DeAngelo Williams meeting with PIT    Wed Mar 11, 12:07 PM

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Panthers) is scheduled to meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, March 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Williams still has something left in the tank, and the Steelers might need that for as many as four games if Le'Veon Bell suspension sidelines him at the beginning of the season. The Steelers backup RB corps is arguably the weakest in the NFL right now.

  Steelers | Interested in re-signing Brice McCain    Wed Mar 11, 01:11 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers are interested in re-signing free-agent CB Brice McCain, and they have a three-year offer on the table. The Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings are also interested in his services.

  Steelers | Make play for Darrelle Revis    Tue Mar 10, 05:40 PM

Free-agent CB Darrelle Revis (Patriots) received an inquiry from the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, March 10, even though it's unrealistic that he'd sign with them. It appears as though Revis will sign with either the New York Jets or New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: Revis played college football at Pitt, so it would be cool to see him back in Pennsylvania. However, this is a pipe dream. The Steelers couldn't get anywhere close to affording a talent like Revis.

  Steelers | Brett Keisel released    Mon Mar 9, 04:11 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers DE Brett Keisel was released Monday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Releasing Keisel was expected. The move clears $1.5 million off the books. Recovering from a triceps injury, Keisel could return to the Steelers for the veteran minimum. He could also just choose to retire.

  Steelers | Matt Spaeth re-signs    Mon Mar 9, 03:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Matt Spaeth re-signed to an undisclosed deal Monday, March 9.

Footballguys view: A blocking tight end who has spent most of his career with the Steelers stays around for a cheap price. Spaeth may catch the occasional touchdown here and there, but he's got no fantasy value.

  Steelers | Tajh Boyd signed    Fri Mar 6, 02:07 PM

Free-agent QB Tajh Boyd (Jets) has signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Boyd is athletic and has a strong arm. However, his say-it-don't-spray-it accuracy leaves a lot to be desired. He'll compete to be a reserve QB behind Ben Roethlisberger.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell to miss four games?    Mon Mar 2, 04:23 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could be suspended up to four games, according to the NFL's new substance-abuse policy. A two-game suspension is standard for a DUI resulting from the use of alcohol. However, Bell's DUI came from marijuana use, so he could be suspended for a longer period of time.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to monitor this situation closely as Bell is a target to be one of the top players off the board in everybody's fantasy drafts in 2015. We'll know more about the NFL's ruling well before you'll have to worry about where to pick him.

  Steelers | Lance Moore let go    Mon Mar 2, 04:01 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore was released Monday, March 2.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Moore wasn't used that much in Pittsburgh. He only ran 180 routes last year, was targeted a mere 27 times and finished the season with only 14 catches, 198 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Moore isn't the same player he used to be, but it wouldn't shock us to see the Saints bring him back.

  Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey will not return    Sun Mar 1, 10:52 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will not re-sign with the Steelers this offseason.

Footballguys view: We're shocked Heyward-Bey has made it this far in the NFL. He struggles to catch, and that's kind of an important skill set when you're a RECEIVER. Heyward-Bey is a good run-blocker, but that's only worth so much. He shouldn't be expecting a ton of phone calls on the open market.

  Steelers | Jason Worilds to hit market    Thu Feb 26, 12:16 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers do not plan to use the transition tag on impending free-agent LB Jason Worilds, allowing him to hit free agency March 10, a league source said Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Worilds has had 15.5 sacks over the last two seasons, the most by any Steelers player during that time. The Steelers are in desperate need of clearing up cap space. At this time, they are about $7 million over the cap. The new league year begins on March 10th, and they'll need to get their cap situation lined up before then.

  Steelers | James Harrison wants to play    Mon Feb 23, 03:07 AM

Free-agent OLB James Harrison (Steelers) has decided he wants to play football in 2015. Harrison would prefer to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers if at all possible.

Footballguys view: Harrison could stick around in Pittsburgh, or he could follow former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau to the Titans.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger to get big contract?    Mon Feb 16, 03:37 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger could earn around $20 million per year once his new contract is finalized, according to former NFL general manager Mark Dominik. This would make Roethlisberger one of the top-five highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL.

Footballguys view: The Steelers want Roethlisberger to stay with them for the rest of his career. We are fairly certain the two sides will be able to come to a big-money long-term agreement.

  Steelers | PIT planning on no Le'Veon Bell     Thu Feb 12, 06:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell could very well be suspended for at least the first two games of the 2015 season. General manager Kevin Colbert said the team is planning on being without Bell at some point. Bell was arrested in August of 2014 for marijuana charges and driving under the influence.

Footballguys view: It's wise for the Steelers to take this approach. We feel they'll add another RB to the mix in the draft or free agency. Then we'll see the backfield shake out behind Bell in training camp. Even with the likely suspension, Bell is still a top-5 pick in most every fantasy draft.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell expected to be suspended    Wed Feb 11, 05:58 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be suspended for the first two games of the 2015 season as a result of his August arrest on marijuana charges, according to sources. Bell will spend 15 months on probation as part of the first-offender's program and will have his driver's license suspended for 60 days. RBs Josh D. Harris and Ben Tate took over when Bell missed the team's playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: The Steelers will likely look to the draft or free agency to improve their backup plans behind Bell. We'll see a potential starter while Bell is out rise to the top during training camp.

  Steelers | Want to re-sign Jason Worilds    Wed Feb 11, 02:44 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers OLB Jason Worilds, who will hit free agency this offseason, will be targeted for re-signing by the team.

Footballguys view: Worilds may have the transition tag applied to him once again, as it was in 2014. This may be the best move for the cap-strapped Steelers. The transition tag would cost the Steelers around $11 million this year. It's a less expensive move than putting the franchise tag on a player. With the transition tag, the Steelers would have the first right of refusal. However, there would be no compensation if they lose Worilds to a team that signs him to an offer sheet.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger contract talks begin    Tue Feb 10, 02:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's contract talks regarding an extension have begun on a preliminary basis, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

Footballguys view: Roethlisberger is entering the final year of his contract in 2015. He has a cap number this year of around $18.4 million. The Steelers are likely to extend him and pay him among the top-5 quarterbacks in the NFL. We can't imagine Roethlisberger playing for another team, and the Steelers will likely wrap him up for the rest of his career.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell facing suspension?    Fri Feb 6, 12:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will spend 15 months on probation in a first-offender's program after his arrest last August for marijuana. He will also have his driver's license suspended for 60 days.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to stay dialed into this situation as Bell is an option for the number-one pick in most every fantasy draft in 2015. Bell can petition the court to have his arrest record expunged if he finishes the probation program without incident. Defense attorney Robert Del Greco Jr. said that Bell will likely face up to a two-game NFL suspension.

  Steelers | Brett Keisel could be back for 2015    Thu Feb 5, 01:18 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers DE Brett Keisel (triceps) told the media Wednesday, Feb. 4, he'd rehab his injury and see how things turn out in regards to playing in 2015.

Footballguys view: But for an injury to Le'Veon Bell, the Steelers could have been on their way to the AFC Championship and perhaps the Super Bowl. Keisel is on his last legs but will probably be around for another season. Keisel has a $1.75 million cap hit in 2015.

  Steelers | Sign Ian Wild    Fri Jan 30, 04:46 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed FS Ian Wild Friday, Jan. 30. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Steelers have signed yet another player from the CFL. Wild played inside linebacker and safety for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers up in Canada, and he registered 73 tackles in 2014. In addition to starring on defense, Wild can be counted on as a long-snapper as well. Coming out of Mercyhurst University, Wild was originally signed as an undrafted free agent (2012) by the Buffalo Bills.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell able to work out    Thu Jan 29, 12:56 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has been able to work out despite ending the season with an injured knee. 'The knee is close to 100%,' Bell said. 'I'm probably about 85-90%, been able to run on it a little bit. So I'm getting back to work out a little.'

Footballguys view: Bell had been one of the best running back in the NFL before is entering. You should be a round draft pick in fantasy draft next year if he stays on pace with his rehab.

  Steelers | Dick LeBeau leaving team    Sat Jan 10, 05:05 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau has parted ways with the team, according to the Urbana Daily Citizen in Ohio.

Footballguys view: It's sad to see the end of an era in Pittsburgh. LeBeau is already in the Hall of Fame because of his playing career. We think he should also go in as a defensive coordinator. His zone-blitz schemes have been revolutionary and shaped the game incredibly. He may not be done coaching, although there were rumors about LeBeau retiring after the 2014 season. Stay tuned.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant, who had 26 catches, 549 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie season, is eager to improve upon his numbers in his sophomore season in 2015.

Footballguys view: We're excited about Bryant's upside. He has the size to be a red-zone threat when the Steelers are near pay dirt. His speed also makes him a strong target on deep passes. Bryant plans to work out with WR Antonio Brown this offseason in Miami. His eight touchdowns put him tied for fourth in the league among rookies.

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed S Jordan Dangerfield and WR L'Damian Washington to Reserve/Futures contracts Thursday, Jan. 8.

Footballguys view: We're watching Washington is super deep dynasty leagues. His game is about speed, speed and more speed. He has good size at 6'4" 195 pounds, but his 9-inch hands give him problems with drops. Originally a 2014 college free agent picked up by the Dallas Cowboys after the draft, Washington has bounced around to four different teams in his rookie year.

  Steelers | Todd Haley signs extension    Thu Jan 8, 11:08 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley recently signed a two-year contract extension that will run through the 2016 season.

Footballguys view: Haley has been a bit hit or miss as a coordinator, but this year the Steelers seemed to overachieve (mostly due to Le'Veon Bell) so that buys him a little more time to work out the kinks. More offensive line help and a little depth in the backfield would go a long way towards continuing the improvement.
