Daily Links: Seumalo Signing Shines, Reed Heads to Miami




Isaac Seumalo gets lots of love after signing with the Steelers while Malik Reed decides to head to a new home.

Andrew Petcash: Former Steelers cornerback Joe Haden made over $120 million during his career in the NFL. He also had endorsements with Jordan Brand and Heinz Ketchup. But it was his love for shoes that set him up big time. During his time in Cleveland, Haden joined forces with Cleveland Cavaliers billionaire owner Dan Gilbert and invested $250,000 into a shoe company called StockX. The $250,000 investment equated to  1% of ownership in the company. And today… StockX is valued at over $3.8 billion. Meaning Joe Haden’s investment is worth north of $14 million.

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger broke down how the Steelers 2010 defense was a different brand of football. Mike Tomlin said on Ben Roethlisberger’s “Footbahlin” podcast recently that the ’10 defense was his best in Pittsburgh because they “physically beat you up.”

Newly signed Steelers guard Isaac Seumalo allowed just one sack and 17 pressures at right guard for the Philadelphia Eagles last year. The three-year, $24 million deal constructed by Omar Khan and Andy Weidl has received high praise. “Steelers continue to pick their spots in free agency and add maybe the top guard available. Could have a really good duo with James Daniels and Seumalo Really good pass blocker, career-high 75.2 overall grade in 2022,” Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus tweeted. Isaac Seumalo is officially a Steeler. Brenden Deeg of The Score added, “Isaac Seumalo is officially a Steeler. Another great offensive lineman find from Howie (Roseman) and (Jeff) Stoutland. Pittsburgh got a good one.”

Ex-Steelers outside linebacker Malik Reed signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins on Saturday. Reed rejoins his former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio from Denver in Miami. The Steelers traded for Reed last August to help improve their depth at outside linebacker and he essentially did nothing. Reed played in 14 games last season including two starts but only recorded one sack. Reed had 13 sacks in the previous two seasons with the Broncos.

The late great Mike Webster would have turned 71 on Saturday. Over his 17 year career, Webster won four Super Bowls with the Steelers, was named All-Pro seven times, started 150 consecutive games and was named to both the 1970s and 1980s NFL All-Decade Teams. In 1997, Webster was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Devin Bush is excited to be with the Seattle Seahawks. “OMFG can’t wait to be a SEAHAWK,” Bush tweeted. Bush signed a one-year, $4 million deal with Seattle.

Najee Harris will be the honorary starter at the Oakland Marathon on Sunday. A $5,000 donation will be made to support his foundation’s work at the Da Bigger Picture, which focuses on assisting underserved families in reaching their potential and goals. The Foundation hopes to provide tools and assistance to families facing challenging times—key areas include education; homelessness; addressing hunger and utilizing sports as a platform to develop life skills.

Jerome Bettis Jr. received an offer from his father’s alma mater Notre Dame. “Proud is an understatement,” Jerome Bettis Sr. tweeted. Bettis Jr. is a 6-foot-3, 190-pound wide receiver at Woodward Academy in Atlanta and is a member of the 2025 recruiting class.
