Kenny Pickett Treats His OL to Lavish Dinner
Any good quarterback knows where his loyalties lie on a football team, and one of those key loyalties is to the big hogs protecting the quarterback on the offensive line. Kenny Pickett knows it, too, and after the second day of OTAs practice, Pickett treated his offensive linemen to a lavish meal.
On Kevin Dotson’s Instagram story, it shows the entire offensive line along with Pickett out for dinner with one another. That is nothing new for Pickett, who has made sure that his big friends up front are taken care of at all times. At Pitt, he had a NIL deal just so he could host weekly dinners that would treat his offensive linemen.

That’s just the leadership that Pickett seems to show, however. It would not be surprising to see him do the same thing for his receivers at some point soon as well. In his second year, players are already talking about how Pickett is stepping up as a more confident leader. This is one such example that showcases what Pickett is trying to do for the team at-large.
Even after he entered into the starting role last season, it felt like Kenny Pickett took the room into his own hands. Now, that appears to be continuing as he hopes to prove himself as the next franchise quarterback for the Steelers.
