🏈 San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk said on The Pivot that he uses social media for leverage in his contract negotiations with the 49ers.

“Social media is a way for me to leverage myself and what I’m trying to get… I’m just trying to get the facts out there,” Aiyuk said.

🏈 Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Warren has been getting after it this offseason.

🏈 Pro Football Talk: The process of carving up the cash won’t begin until the case is over. It’s possible that the NFL will still prevail, either in post-judgment motions or before the appeals court or ultimately in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. But let’s assume that, for now, the $4.696 billion verdict stands, let’s do some rough math as to what it means for the average consumer.

As explained in the website devoted to the litigation, the class automatically covers anyone who purchased Sunday Ticket from June 17, 2011 through February 7, 2023. If you didn’t opt out of the class before October 8, 2023, you are in it.

The class action covers 12 years of Sunday Ticket. Based on the class-action website, you must affirmatively request a share at the appropriate time.

Presumably, the payments will be broken down to each year that each customer bought Sunday Ticket during the window — from one to 12. For each year that a given consumer had Sunday Ticket, there will be another unit of payment up to a maximum of 12.

🏈 Pro Football Focus ranked the Steelers inside linebackers unit as the 13th-best in the NFL.

“The Steelers made a splash at the linebacker position this offseason by bringing in Patrick Queen from the division-rival Baltimore Ravens. Queen has improved every season since entering the league and is coming off a career-high 73.0 PFF grade. He has yet to turn 25 years old, so it’s reasonable to expect that he will continue to get better. Alongside him, Elandon Roberts posted a career-high 72.2 PFF grade on 622 snaps in 2023,” Gordon McGuinness of PFF wrote.
