Steelers Daily Links: Highsmith Unsung Hero; Minkah’s Mental Game
Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Alex Highsmith is being celebrated for his 2022 season — even though he’s been snubbed twice for the Pro Bowl, and Levi Wallace gave some insight about Minkah Fitzpatrick’s metal game.
NFL.com: Outside linebacker Alex Highsmith was the Steelers’ unsung hero of the 2022 season, helping to stabilize the defense without T.J. Watt and breaking out into a star of his own.
CBS: Levon Kirkland said he thinks the Dallas Cowboys took the Steelers lightly in their Super Bowl XXX matchup.
33rd Team: Steelers cornerback Levi Wallace said that sometimes, safety Minkah Fitzpatrick will change the play call in the huddle if he sees or feels something that he can take advantage of.
Club Shay Shay: Former Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys cornerback and punt returner Pac-Man Jones said one of the worst hits he ever took in the NFL came from Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison, on a punt return while he was with the Cowboys. Jones said he needed neck surgery after the hit.
