Eagles CB Darius Slay

One former Pittsburgh Steelers player wants them to trade for a big-name cornerback and a national analyst talked about the best part of Najee Harris’ game.

🏈 Former Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier would like to see Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay in the black and gold. Shazier commented “Pittsburgh” on an Instagram post by ESPN’s Adam Schefter about the Eagles giving Slay permission to explore a trade.

🏈 Red Line Football: From a fantasy football perspective, Steelers running back Najee Harris has had his best ability be availability. Since being drafted in 2021, Harris has started all 34 regular season games and one playoff game for the Steelers.

Compare that to say, the Baltimore Ravens. Who had J.K. Dobbins (eight games), Devonta Freeman (eight games), Latavius Murray (six games), Kenyan Drake (five games), Gus Edwards (four games) and Ty’Son Williams (three games) all make starts in that span.

🏈 Not Just Football Podcast: Actor, Steelers fan and Mt. Lebanon Joe Manganiello recounted a story about when he almost got into fight with Steelers assistant general manager and fellow Mt. Lebanon native Andy Weidl.

🏈 Steelers nose tackle Montravius Adams visited students at his former elementary school, Dooly County K-8 Academy in Pinehurst, Georgia.

“I just want to come back and give back to the youth where I was and just see some of the kids,” Adams said. “We had a great day so far. For me personally, just seeing the kids’ facial expressions, hearing the laughter and hearing the cheering.”

🏈 Former Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert took in the IUP basketball game on Saturday.

📅 On this date in 1988, the Steelers and Dallas Cowboys were contemplating a trade that would have brought former Pitt and Hopewell star Tony Dorsett back to Pittsburgh. He ended up being traded to the Denver Broncos for a conditional fifth-round draft pick. He had 181 carries for 703 yards and five touchdowns in his final NFL season with the Broncos.

🎂 Happy 26th birthday to Steelers inside linebacker Tae Crowder.
