Daily Links: Steelers Out on OBJ, Remembering Dick Haley



The Pittsburgh Steelers were not among the teams to send a scout to a private workout held by former New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and one NFL scout gave a touching remembrance to Steelers personnel director Dick Haley, who recently died.

🏈 Senior Bowl: Director Jim Nagy gave a nice tribute to former Pittsburgh Steelers personnel director Dick Haley, who passed away at the age of 85. “NFL scouting community lost an all-time great w/ passing of Steelers & Jets exec Dick Haley. Drafted four @seniorbowl players in 3-year span who would become Hall-of-Famers—Franco Harris, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, & Mike Webster. Prayers go out to Todd Haley and his family.

🏈 Jonathan Jones: Odell Beckham Jr. had a private workout in Arizona on Friday. The teams in attendance included the Carolina Panthers, New York Giants, New York Jets, New England Patriots, Los Angles Rams, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.

🏈 I Am Athlete podcast: Former Steelers cornerback Joe Haden named the top-5 wideouts that he faced during his career, and Antonio Brown came in at No. 1. Following AB was Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. and Larry Fitzgerald. Prior to joining the Steelers in 2017, Haden played for the Browns, so he got a heavy dose of AB every year.

🏈 93.7 The Fan: Former Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden said Northwestern offensive tackle Peter Skoronski looks like a Steeler. “You want to talk about a guy who’s Pittsburgh Steeler? That guy is a Pittsburgh Steeler.”

🏈 NFL Network: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy underwent successful surgery on his elbow Friday. It was the anticipated UCL repair with an internal brace. The expectation is Purdy will begin throwing in three months and build up his strength from there.

🏈 ABC Green Bay WBAY: Green Bay Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy explained why they let the New York Jets talk with Aaron Rodgers. “It’s a situation where I think we wanted to help Aaron achieve what he wanted, as well as the Packers. Hopefully it’ll create a situation where it’s a win for both sides,” Murphy said.

📅 On this date in 1991, Steelers legend and Hall of Famer Mike Webster announced his retirement. “He was the best center in the history of the game,” Chuck Noll said. Webster played for the Steelers from 1974-1988 before finishing his career with the Kansas City Chiefs.
