🏈 Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is coming out with a new book called “Legendary” on July 9. The book centers around the Steelers legendary 2008 defense, the zone blitz and LeBeau’s six decades in the NFL.

Steelers Takeaways shared a passage on X from his interview with co-author George Von Benko on the new book.

“There was a truly special relationship between Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu. Dick said the two players didn’t have to speak to one another – they would just look at each other and they knew what the other would do,” Van Benko said. “That allowed Troy to be so successful as that Swiss Army Knife type of player. Clark was willing to do that role. They didn’t have many big plays that year on defense, but they always made the big tackles and stops, and didn’t allow many big plays. Clark was a big reason for that.”

 🏈 The Seattle Seahawks honored Russell Wilson with his own retro jersey. Wilson was named to nine Pro Bowls and won a Super Bowl during his 10 years in Seattle.

Wilson said on X that he’s forever grateful for the Seahawks.

🏈 Former Broncos offensive lineman Mark Schlereth blasted Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

“I don’t want to hear from all of you … that Lamar Jackson, ‘Well they don’t get him weapons.’ “How many RD1 WRs do you need to draft? … Your QB has a long way to go in developing WRs. I don’t want to hear that bulls*** anymore and you Baltimore fans. I’m tired of it.”

🏈 Craig Wolfley thinks former Steelers L.C. Greenwood and Andy Russell belong in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

🏈 The Sunday Night Football on NBC account on X posted a graphic of the AFC head coaches years with their current team. Heading into his 18th season, Mike Tomlin is the longest-tenured current head coach in the entire league.
