Daily Links: Alumni at OTAs, Steelers Schedule Easy?



Steelers OTAs

Sports Illustrated analyst Matt Verdame thinks the Pittsburgh Steelers have an easy enough schedule to win 10 or 11 games, and could even make some noise in the playoffs, much like the New York Giants did last year, thanks to a favorable schedule.

“There’s not too many games where you’re like, ‘Oh, that’s a loss,'” he said to Dave Dameshek on the Minus Three Podcast. “I mean, they could be a pretty average team and win 10 or 11 games. Like, here’s my hot take with them. Every year there’s a team, you’ll look at ’em and you’re like, I don’t know how that team’s in the playoffs or the 11 wins, but here they are.

“I think the Steelers are gonna be that team this year. When you look at ’em, the Giants were that team last year. I have no idea how this team is a six seed, but here we are and they won a playoff game. I think the Steelers could be that team this year.”

🏈 The Steelers hosted Oakland Athletics manager Mark Kotsay and other members of the coaching staff at Tuesday’s OTAs practice. The A’s are in town for a three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

“It was a real pleasure having Mark Kotsay and some of the @athletics coaching staff at today’s OTA session,” Mike Tomlin tweeted. “Always love talking ball with others in the business. Thanks for taking time out of your schedule to make it happen.”

🏈 Steelers Community Relations: On Tuesday, the Steelers teamed up with the American Heart Associationto host a CPR education session at Pittsburgh Sterrett. Defensive linemen Isaiahh Loudermilk and Montravius Adams joined in the education session and led a couple of Play 60 drills with students.

🏈 The Steelers had members of their alumni at Tuesday’s OTAs practice. “One of my favorite days is having our alumni visit. These guys set the standard we all follow,” Mike Tomlin tweeted.

🎂 Happy Birthday to former Steelers inside linebacker Sean Spence, born on June 7, 1990 in Miami, Florida. Spence was drafted by the Steelers in the third round out of Miami in the 2012 NFL Draft. In a preseason game during his rookie year, Spence suffered a catastrophic knee injury in which he tore his ACL, LCL and dislocated his kneecap. Most significantly, Spence also damaged the peroneal nerve that helps control movement in the lower leg. Spence returned in 2014 but his career really never materialized due to the serious knee injury. After stints with the Titans and Colts in 2016 and 2017, respectively, Spence signed back with the Steelers in 2017 and started five games before calling it a career.

🎥 The official NFL Twitter account paid tribute to the original TB12, Terry Bradshaw, with some of his classic plays from his Hall of Fame career.
