🏈 Pittsburgh Steelers’ second-round selection Roman Wilson was in the Black and Gold for the first time at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles. Given the Steelers lack of depth at wide receiver, rookie Roman Wilson should see a lot of playing time in Year 1. Chris Simms of NBC Sports believe he can have a Puka Nucua-like season.

🏈 Steelers quarterback Russell Wilson will be a guest speaker for a large group of boys underclassmen basketball players Tuesday at RIZE Sports in Leetsdale.

Players will be practicing that night for the underclassmen games, which are a lead-up to the annual Roundball Classic senior all-star games set for next Thursday through Sunday at North Allegheny High School in McCandless.

Wilson will speak around 7 p.m. The event is open to the public and free of charge.

🏈 Pro Football Focus tabbed second-year nose tackle Keeanu Benton as a breakout candidate.

“Pittsburgh has several sophomores who should burst onto the scene, and maybe none is as tantalizing as Benton,” Bradley Locker of PFF wrote. “The former Badger ranked fourth on the Steelers with 24 pressures despite playing only 516 snaps. There were several moments when Benton looked flat-out unblockable, but the Steelers didn’t use him as much as anticipated as a rookie. With Cameron Heyward experiencing a down 2023 and uncertainty with Larry Ogunjobi’s production, it feels as though Benton should easily exceed his previous snap count and be disruptive on the interior.”

🏈 Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt and his family had a celebration for his brother Derek’s career.

“Enjoyed celebrating your amazing career Derek! Not many people get to say they played on the same team as their brother in high school, college, and in the NFL. I am lucky to be one of those people! Enjoy retirement,” Watt wrote on Instagram.

🎥 Steel City Star posted a coaches film video of Terry Bradshaw’s touchdown run against the Cleveland Browns Week 2 of the 1976 season.
