Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus thinks the Pittsburgh Steelers trade with the New England Patriots in the first round was the best trade up of the 2023 NFL Draft. The Steelers gave up only a fourth round pick (No. 120 overall) to move from No. 17 to No. 14 to select Georgia offensive tackle Broderick Jones.
🏈 Pro Football Talk: Ongoing NFL Sunday Ticket antitrust litigation could reveal plenty of NFL secrets. According to Mike Florio, further disclosures could show that the talks with Apple failed because Apple wanted to make the package significantly cheaper for consumers. The plaintiffs in the Sunday Ticket antitrust litigation essentially are arguing that the league has withheld documents that would show Apple wasn’t selected due to its plan to offer the package for less than consumers have been paying. It has been suggested that Sunday Ticket can’t be offered at a significantly lower price, due to the NFL’s contracts with CBS and Fox. Beyond the price of the full package, Apple might have wanted to allow consumers to buy Sunday Ticket for all games of only one team, or one week or game at a time.
🏈 Former Steelers inside linebacker Vince Williams thinks Joey Porter Jr. already has that Steelers DNA.
“The best part about it, what I always try to tell people is that you have to mold Steelers. You know what I mean? Like Steelers are made, you try to find guys that could fit in. And he’s already like that,” Williams said of Porter on Cam Heyward’s Not Just Football podcast. “It’s already in his DNA. He’s gonna come in, he’s gonna be right-minded. He already knows and understands what we are looking for. He’s going to be able to get in and contribute right away.”
🏈 Joey Porter Jr. shared a special moment with Joe Greene at Mel Blount’s Youth Home All-Star Celebrity Roast.
