Good day Steelers’ Fans and Happy Birthday to my boy who turns 12 today! Holy crap time flies!!
It looks more and more likely that Keenan Lewis is NOT coming back to the Steelers. The hip problem he’s had is just not to a point where the Steelers are comfortable with signing him and I can understand that.
The silver lining out of Lewis’ visit is that it may be indication of the Steelers’ desire to bring in a veteran cornerback. Granted, Lewis was a former Steeler which gave him a step up but I still think they could use another corner. Could that happen as teams start cutting in the coming days? It very well could.
Mike Tomlin originally indicated that first round pick Artie Burns could play Friday night in New Orleans. Hold the phone on that as Burns didn’t practice on Wednesday.
One other guy that is much more of a concern right now and is not playing Friday is Bud Dupree. He has been extremely limited throughout the preseason and that has continued to this day. I don’t think the panic button is necessary yet but we’re getting close.
James Harrison meets today with NFL investigators at 11am ET.

OK so I was wrong. It’s now Thursday and I thought for sure Ladarius Green would have been off the PUP list by now. Really thought he’d be ready by now.
‘Nail the Number’ is getting closer!!! Make sure you check it out!!
With the above thought in mind, I’m just going to mind my own business when it comes to how soon David DeCastro gets a new deal.
One of the unwritten rules of an NFL locker room is that you don’t talk about other guy’s contracts. That was sort of violated yesterday when it appeared that to a man, Steelers’ players were thrilled for linebacker Vince Williams a day after he got a new deal from the team. Williams is easily one of the more popular players within the locker room.
One more day till gameday! Have a great one Steeler Nation!
