๐Ÿˆ Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman of Las Vegas, Nevada proclaimed February 22, 2024 as Kordell Stewart Day. The former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback teamed up with the Traillionaires Foundation to host a two-day charity golf event in Las Vegas.

The Traillionaires Foundation fundamentally wants to help students obtain life-sustaining jobs faster, develop important life skills, and increase financial knowledge, thus advancing the rate of youth of color develop creditworthiness, savings, and investments.The Traillionaires Foundation mission can be accomplished through year-long out-of-school programming, annual events, and intentional accelerated programs that occur during the summer months.

๐Ÿˆ Former Carolina Panthers and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. thinks Russell Wilson to the Steelers would be a gift to the Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals.

“So, if I’m the Baltimore Ravens, I’m saying, ‘Oh hell yeah, bring him in, bring him in.’ Have you not seen Russell Wilson over the last two years? Have you not seen what’s going on in the AFC North?” Smith said on NFL Total Access.

“Now you have Russell Wilson in Pittsburgh? I don’t really see Russell Wilson right now, based on his body of work and what he has done in Denver, that you’re sitting here thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, the Pittsburgh Steelers just got that much better.'”

“Good luck, buttercup, if you’re going to get Russell Wilson in Pittsburgh and play in the AFC North. They have three good teams, and if Russell Wilson is your guy, he does not make your team better right now. Sometimes, I can’t read, and sometimes, I can’t count, but guess what? I can count and read today, and the numbers don’t add up.”

๐Ÿˆ Former Steelers quarterback and Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw said on the Rich Eisen Show that he wished he could have played in today’s era.

๐Ÿˆ Terry Bradshaw did a complete 180 on Arthur Smith. During the interview with Rich Eisen, Bradshaw said he felt Smith was โ€œone win awayโ€ from keeping his head coach job in Atlanta. He also claimed that Smith’s a โ€œgood dudeโ€ and a โ€œgood guy.โ€

Thatโ€™s a completely different tune from Bradshaw as he absolutely ripped Smith during the season for benching Desmond Ridder.

โ€œI have no respect for Arthur Smith,โ€ Bradshaw said during โ€œFox NFL Sundayโ€ on Dec. 24. โ€œ(He) messed with that young quarterback Desmond Ridder like that, and you set him back. Play the young man. Leave him alone. Donโ€™t lie to him. And (Smith) lied to him. He needs to get his butt whooped! Nothing upsets me more than when someone lies to me.โ€

๐Ÿˆ Jeff Hathhorn of 93.7 The Fan thinks there’s a better chance Russell Wilson is a Steeler in 2024 than Mason Rudolph.

๐Ÿˆ The Steelers released a new The Standard episode. The episode features exclusive footage of Steelers scouts at the Senior Bowl, behind-the-scenes access at the Pro Bowl Games, reactions from Bart Starr Award winner Minkah Fitzpatrick and Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Cameron Heyward and more.

๐Ÿˆ Potential Steelers’ first-round pick Amarius Mims was a man amongst boys at Bleckley County High School in Cochran, Georgia. Mims played on the offensive line with Broderick Jones at Georgia.

๐ŸŽ‚ Happy Birthday to former Steelers safety Shamarko Thomas, born on February 23, 1991 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Thomas was a fourth-round selection by the Steelers out of Syracuse in the 2013 NFL Draft. Thomas played in 48 games for the Steelers from 2013-2016, but only made two starts. He served mostly as a special teams player. Thomas had short stints with with other clubs after departing from the Steelers. From 2020-2021, he played in the XFL, UFL and CFL.
