Steelers CB Ike Taylor

🏈 Steelers: General manager Omar Khan spoke with Max Starks at the owners Meetings about the new additions to the roster, free agency, the 2023 NFL Draft and more. “Free agency’s not over,” Khan said. “There’s a lot of good players still out there and we continue that evaluation process, continue to have conversations with several guys. And you’ll see over the next few weeks more guys might come available, and we’ll stay ahead of that.”

🏈 Former Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor, currently a scout with the Steelers, was at the Miami pro day. Cornerback Tyrique Stevenson is the top Hurricanes draft-eligible player, and could be an option for the Steelers on the second day of the draft.

🏈 Gambling.com: The Pittsburgh Steelers have the fifth-most popular jerseys in the NFL, a recent study found.

🏈 Steelers: Cornerback Levi Wallace recently discussed being diagnosed with Bell’s palsy during the 2022 season. Bell’s palsy is a neurological disorder that causes paralysis or weakness to one side of the face. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke says Bell’s palsy results from dysfunction of cranial nerve VII, which connects your brain to the muscles that control facial expression. “It was a challenge,” Wallace told Varley. “It just took some getting used to. But I never wanted it to be a crutch in my performance, so it was what it was. … “Not too many people know I played with Bell’s palsy and was still recovering from it a little bit at the end of the season. It was definitely an interesting season. I knew it wasn’t more than I could handle, and I know that God was never going to give me more than what I could handle. Just a blessing to still be able to play with that impairment throughout the season.”

🏈 MMQB: New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said rapper Meek Mill texted him three or four days ago saying Lamar Jackson wanted to come to New England. Kraft responded that would be Bill Belichick’s decision.

🏈 Pro Football Talk: In two straight pre-Super Bowl press conferences, NFL Network reporter Jim Trotter asked Commissioner Roger Goodell about diversity issues in the newsroom. Over the weekend, Trotter learned his contract with NFL Network will not be renewed.

🏈 The Score: Terrell Edmunds was one of only four safeties to play over 880 snaps last year and fail to record a single interception, forced fumble, or fumble recovery.

🎂 Steelers center Mason Cole turns 27 years old today.

📸 The Pro Football Hall of Fame official Twitter account posted a rare colorized version of the iconic photo of a bloodied Y.A. Tittle. On Sept. 24, 1964 at Pitt Stadium, Steelers defensive end John Baker delivered a crushing hit on Tittle, which resulted in a pick-six by Chuck Hinton. A photo of a dazed Tittle in the end zone taken by Morris Berman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is regarded among the most iconic images in the history of American sports and journalism.
