🏈 Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is selling his house in Cypress, Texas for $2.1 million. The ultra-modern 5,577-square-foot home was built in 2021 and was bought by Ward and his wife in 2022. Ward accepted a wide receivers coaching position at Arizona State in April.

🏈 Mark Kaboly of The Athletic thinks Justin Fields has “zero chance” of unseating Russell Wilson as the starting quarterback.

“Zero. I just don’t think there’s enough time for that,” Kaboly said on 93.7 The Fan.”

“It’s more than just being a quarterback. It’s being a leader, taking those guys to dinner. It’s being that type of leader that they haven’t had in a number of years… So I don’t worry about Justin Fields right now. I think you worry about him next year.

“Watching [Justin Fields] in these two weeks, sometimes he looks like Ben Roethlisberger out there, and sometimes he looks like Mark Malone out there. To be honest with you, that’s just how I view it. He needs some more work to be done. You can see the talent. He’s easily the most athletic guy out there. I mean, he just makes people look like fools out there in this setting. But you’ve got to be consistent, and that’s what the issue was in Chicago.”

🏈 Steelers running back Jaylen Warren will host a football clinic June 8 as part of Grand Opening weekend festivities for Dick’s outdoor athletic field space in Millcreek Township.

🏈 Bucky Brooks of NFL.com thinks Russell Wilson’s pedigree is exactly what the Steelers need.

🏈 The Steelers’ defensive triplets of T.J Watt, Patrick Queen and Minkah Fitzpatrick were ranked the fifth-best trio unit in the NFL by Gilbert Manzano of Sports Illustrated.

🏈 Steel City Star posted a clip of Joe Greene during a Monday Night Football intro in the preseason of 1981.
