Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool has a new mentor and Mitch Trubisky is reminding everyone of his top potential, plus which players will be the next to get the Hall of Fame call to Canton?

🏈 Chase Claypool has showed great potential as a wide receiver in his two years with the Steelers, and now he has former NFL receiver Brandon Marshall working with him on the mental side of the game, from how to break down film to social media and mindset. Nick Farabaugh with more on the young star.

🏈 Steelers Injury Updates: TE Connor Heyward and NT Montravius Adams left practice on Tuesday, adding to the growing number of Steelers players sidelined by seemingly minor injuries.

🏈 Steelers Training Camp Takeaways: Mitch Trubisky is showing why he’s the former No. 2 overall pick with glimpses of his high-upside potential, and if he can do it more consistently, he could close the Steelers quarterback competition quickly.

🏈 Diontae Johnson no-showed his football camp in late May, and now the company that organized the camp is seeking legal damages. According to court documents, FlexWork Sports Management LLC is suing Johnson in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania for breaching his contract. Johnson’s camp claims he did not show up because of weather-related flight delays.

🏈 According to SportsBetting.ag, the Steelers are tied for the fifth-highest odds to be the last winless team this season at +900. Only the Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons have higher odds. Atlanta has the highest odds at +450. The Steelers are tied with the Carolina Panthers, New York Giants and New York Jets at +900. Even the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars have lower odds than the Steelers to be the last winless team.

AROUND THE NFL

🏈 The Steelers and Seattle Seahawks will be a battle of teams figuring out who their starting quarterback will be on Saturday, and while the Steelers have not released their plan for utilizing their trio of competitors, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll announced on Tuesday that former West Virginia star Geno Smith will get the nod for Seattle. Smith started the game between the teams last fall at Heinz Field while Russell Wilson was injured.

🏈 After a tumultuous tenure with the Steelers, former first-round pick Artie Burns is ascending with the Seattle Seahawks. Burns has impressed the coaching staff so much that he was named as a starter on the Seahawks’ initial depth chart. “I see the arrow going up on Artie on where he’s going,” Seahawks defensive coordinator Clint Hurtt said via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. The Steelers play their first preseason game on Saturday night against the Seahawks at Acrisure Stadium, but it’s unlikely that Burns will play, as Carroll said he tweaked his groin on Tuesday.

🏈 NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is calling for a full-season suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson after appealing the ruling of an independent arbiter that handed down a six-game suspension.

🏈 The Cincinnati Bengals have joined the Steelers in re-naming their stadium this offseason, selling the naming rights to Paul Brown Stadium to Cincinnati-based payroll company Paycor.

🏈 In other news regarding former Steelers, defensive back Sean Davis worked out with the Arizona Cardinals, and running backs Jaylen Samuels and Kalen Ballage had a workout with the Green Bay Packers.
