Steelers tight end Zach Gentry said the team’s games against the Cincinnati Bengals have been the most contentious lately in an appearance of the Steel Here podcast.
“There’s a lot of shit-talking on the field when we play them,” Gentry said. “It seems like it’s a little more physical.”
Gentry also said that the games weren’t any less physical than the ones against the Baltimore Ravens, just more talkative. “It feels like there’s a little bit more respect there between the Ravens and the Steelers on the field.”
🏈 The Athletic: If the Steelers do not retain backup quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, Joe Buscaglia suggested that the could return to Buffalo to once again work with the Bills behind Josh Allen. Trubisky has maintained that he would still like to be considered to be a starting quarterback candidate.
🏈 Could J.J. Watt end up in Pittsburgh alongside his brothers in 2023? He hasn’t ruled it out, despite retiring from the NFL. But if he does, he made it clear on Friday that he wouldn’t be doing it for the minimum.
“I love my brothers VERY much,” Watt said. “I don’t love them THAT much.”
I love my brothers VERY much.
I don’t love them THAT much.
