🏈 Pittsburgh Steelers first-round pick Troy Fautanu’s rookie deal is worth $15.055 million guaranteed, including a $7.769 million signing bonus, guaranteed roster training camp bonuses of $522,925, $1.095 million and $682,510 in 2025, 2026 and 2027, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston.

🏈 Former Steelers guard and Hall of Famer Alan Faneca said it’s an honor to be named to the 2025 College Football Hall of Fame ballot.

🏈 Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is leaning toward a deal not being done with Cam Heyward. Until Tuesday, Heyward had not been around the team for the first two weeks of OTAs, opting instead to make a protest about a contract extension.

🏈 The official NFL account on X posted some of George Pickens’ highlight reel catches in 2023.

🏈 Pro Football Talk: Netflix might struggle to get what it wants for ads for its pair of Christmas Day NFL games. For Netflix, which is reportedly paying roughly $75 million each for two Christmas games (Ravens-Steelers and Texans-Chiefs), the advertising bounty might not be as robust as hoped.

Via Brian Steinberg of Variety.com, Netflix is expected to meet resistance when it comes to getting the kind of advertising dollars it hopes to generate.

Per the report, efforts to sell 30-second ads for as much as $400,000 “have not yet proven convincing.”

🏈 Actor Ed O’Neill, who was a defensive lineman for the Steelers in training camp in 1969, said on the Pat McAfee Show that he would have recurring dreams of him back at Saint Vincent College.

“When I got cut by the Steelers I always had the same dream that I was back at Latrobe… Every year I would have the same dream but the only difference was I was the age I actually am,” O’Neill said.

🏈 Steel City Star posted a clip from a Steelers-Colts preseason game when the the forgotten “solidarity handshakes” took place prior to the 1982 strike.
