Daily Links: Ex-Steelers Stand Out in XFL; Free Agency Improvement



Steelers OLB Tuzar Skipper

How much better have the Pittsburgh Steelers gotten in free agency? One metric tells us. It was a big night in the XFL for a handful of former Steelers.

🏈 Unexpected Points: Kevin Cole broke down how much better each NFL has gotten through the first week of free agency, and the Steelers are on the right side of the ledger, showing modest improvement. They are also ahead of the rest of the AFC North, where the Cleveland Browns are in the middle of the pack league-wide and the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens have lost more than they’ve gained.

🏈 Three former Steelers defensive players had big nights in the XFL game on Thursday between the Seattle Sea Dragons and Houston Roughnecks. Outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper had a sack, a forced fumble and blocked a punt, and safety Antoine Brooks also had a strip sack for Seattle

Former Steelers defensive back Sean Davis had an interception and running back Max Borghi scored a short touchdown in the losing effort for Houston.
