🏈 Johnstown Tribune-Democrat: Patrick Peterson told Amanda Godsey that Joey Porter Jr. has the intangibles to be better than him.

“I just want to continue helping in as many ways as I can because he has all the intangibles to be better than me,” Peterson said. “I know most greats, or most guys, won’t say that, but that’s just the type of guy I am. I want to pass on the game and leave it in good hands.”

🏈 Pro Football Talk: Steelers teammates see a healthier, “more comfortable” Larry Ogunjobi this year.

“I see a more comfortable Larry,” Cam Heyward said, via the team’s website. “I think we signed Larry a little bit later [last year] and Larry was coming off an injury. I just think he is healthier, and I am excited. He has a calm demeanor, but he works his tail off. I am excited for him.”

Demarvin Leal added that the team sees “a scary Larry Ogunjobi” on the defensive line.

🏈 Pro Football Focus: PFF ranked Mason Cole as the 22nd-best center in the NFL.

“Cole struggled in Arizona in his first three seasons in the league but was pretty solid in his first season with the Steelers last year,” Gordon McGuinness of PFF wrote. “His 67.1 PFF grade ranked 12th in the league among centers, though his 63.8 PFF pass-blocking grade was tied for 24th, so there is still a fair amount of improvement to be made.”
