Ryan Shazier looks like a Day 1 fit with Steelers


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) It appears that rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier will fit in with the Steelers starting unit right away. Shazier worked with the first-team defense in the spring and didn't look lost according to ESPN. He's sorely needed on a defense that uncharacteristically struggled to slow down the run in 2013. 

"He understands concepts very well," linebackers coach Keith Butler said. "He reminds me a lot of Larry Foote in terms of football intelligence, and he's a very sharp guy."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) The Steelers are looking to upgrade the middle of their defensive line after nose tackle Steve McLendon's performance in 2013, reports ESPN.com. McLendon made his average tackle after a gain of 3.0 yards, worst of any starting nose tackle in a 3-4 defense, according to Football Outsiders.

Pittsburgh gave up 125 rushing yards per game after yielding 95 yards per game in 2012. McLendon is signed through 2015, but most expect the Steelers to take a defensive tackle early in the draft.


Cortez Allen wants to be lockdown corner


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen would like to become a shadow corner and follow around the opposing team's best receiver, reports the official team website. He would be replacing Ike Taylor in that role if it happens in 2014. 

"Of course," Allen said. "I've always liked to challenge myself. I've always wanted that challenge just to see how I match up. And it's always fun to go against talent like that. Ike's done it before me. Hopefully, one day I'll be in that position to be the level of player that he is. It's a day-by-day process. I'm just trying to learn as much as I can from him and the guys around me. Wherever I am in the defense, wherever they see fit, what's best for the team, then that’s where I'll be. I've never been a guy who said, 'I want to play on this side or that side.' We’re both capable of playing either side. And we're both capable of playing anybody we face. It's always us. It's never them."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones didn't live up to his draft status, tallying one sack and getting benched for poor play. The jury is still out on last year's 17th overall pick, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Jones, expected to start in 2014, finished with 41 tackles and four passes defensed in 14 games.


Jason Worilds seeking starter assurance


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Steelers outside linebacker and impending free agent Jason Worilds would prefer to stay in Pittsburgh, but only if promised a starting job, per the National Football Post.

"If the circumstances are right, for sure," Worilds said. "They haven't been right for me in the past. I wouldn't want to fall back into (not starting) again.

"I've just been patient and (waiting to) see how the Steelers view me. The biggest thing is just being in the right situation. ... It's been rough just to get on the field, especially when you probably could have helped the team in years past, but you just weren't given an opportunity. The opportunity came this year, and I did well with it."

He did indeed. Worilds was placed in the starting lineup on Oct. 20 with the Steelers at 1-4. He helped the team finish at 8-8 with 63 tackles and eight sacks, including six in his last eight games.


Brett Keisel speaks longingly about Lions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel is impressed with the talent on both sides of the ball in Detroit, including fellow Brigham Young standout Ziggy Ansah, and could see himself playing for the Lions, per Michigan Live. Keisel is set to explore free agency.

"They've got a great team," he told radio station 105.1. "I really like their quarterback [Matt Stafford]. They've got [wide receiver Calvin Johnson]. ... Those guys, I think are going to make some noise next year.

"I went to BYU, so I'm proud of my boy Ziggy coming in as a rookie and being a key contributor on that defense. Really, it's amazing, where he's come from, the way he's playing, got into the league and was a first-round pick."

Keisel managed 29 tackles and four sacks in 2013 despite missing four games to injury.


Report: Release of Ike Taylor could be sound move


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Financial and performance considerations could motivate the Steelers to release veteran cornerback Ike Taylor, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Taylor is slated to earn $7 million in 2014, which would count nearly $11.9 million against the cap. In addition, Taylor was burned by several top wideouts in his 11th season, motivating defensive cooredinator Dick LeBeau to abandon him in that role. Speculation is that the most prudent move would be to offer him a new contract at far less money.


Impending free agent Brett Keisel: I can still play


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Steelers defensive end and impending free agent Brett Keisel claims he still has some gas left in the tank, per Steelers Depot.

LaMarr Woodley taking different approach to staying healthy


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) Injury-plagued Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley will be trying this offseason to shed that tag. That's why he will be working with noted trainer Tom Shaw.

Woodley has missed 14 games over the last three seasons, mostly with calf and hamstring injuries. He has previously trained on his own in Arizona, but will be working in Orlando this year with Shaw, who stresses running on trails and even sandpits to strengthen legs.

The new regimen for Woodley comes with the urging of teammate Ike Taylor, who has worked with Shaw. 


Steelers looking to lock up Jason Worilds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Steelers considering redoing Troy Polamalu deal


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2014) The Steelers are seeking to reconstruct the contract of strong safety Troy Polamalu in an attempt to keep him with the team for the rest of his career, according to National Football Post. Polamalu is due $8.25 million in 2014, the final year of his current pact.

"How we structure or restructure (Polamalu's contract) is something we will look at in the next few months," said owner Art Rooney II. "There are a lot of pieces to the puzzle, but I certainly expect Troy will be one of the pieces to that puzzle. He's obviously been one of the great Steelers of all time."

Polamalu just concluded his 11th season with the team.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Steelers nearly toss shutout in Week 17


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Steelers DST unit did a good job handling a beat up Browns team in Week 17, holding them to just a late touchdown in a 20-7 win.

A Fozzy Whittaker touchdown with less than three minutes remaining spoiled the shutout bid late, but the Steelers still put together one of their best performances of the season. Pittsburgh forced the Browns into two turnovers, and racked up three sacks while holding them to 293 yards of total offense.

This Steelers DST unit used to be one of the league's best, but this year's version struggled more than in years past. The 370 points allowed by the defense is the most allowed by a Steelers team since 1988. The Steelers are likely to enter next season as a mid-tier Fantasy DST option on Draft Day.
