Steelers Daily: Vets on Roster Bubble, Trade for OL?
Several Pittsburgh Steelers veterans are on the roster bubble and external options for offensive line help are starting to emerge.
🏈 The Steelers made five cuts on Tuesday, including releasing veteran linebacker Genard Avery and seventh-round draft pick quarterback Chris Oladokun. Nick Farabaugh argued that the team’s drafting of Oladokun with such a packed quarterback group ahead of him never made any sense.
🏈 Cale Berger argues that the poor play of the Steelers’ offensive line is not a reason to hold back Kenny Pickett if he’s ready to be the team’s starting quarterback.
🏈 The New England Patriots are taking trade calls for tackle Isaiah Wynn. Should the Steelers be interested?
🏈 Myles Jack said he’s getting more and more comfortable in a Steelers defense, of which he is going to be expected to be one of the leaders.
🏈 SN Power Rankings: Alan Saunders, Nick Farabaugh and Cale Berger ranked the Steelers veterans that could be unexpectedly on the roster bubble.
🏈 According to Kevin Seifert of ESPN, former Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak is helping the Minnesota Vikings’ coaching staff out for a few days. Current Vikings offensive line coach Chris Kuper was an assistant under Munchak in Denver.
🏈 Former Steelers inside linebacker Vince Williams gave some props to Mark Robinson, who’s been impressive in the Steelers’ first two preseason games. “Mark Robinson is better than I was as a rookie. I hope he keeps #93,” Williams tweeted.
🏈 Cam Heyward spent his off day on Tuesday at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to tackle childhood hunger.
🏈 Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network revealed his best/worst-case projections for Kenny Pickett and George Pickens in their rookie seasons.
🏈 Peter Schrager of Good Morning Football feels better about the Steelers now than he did at the start of training camp.
🏈 Colin Cowherd of FS1 is on the Kenny Pickett QB1 train.
🏈 Pickett is tied for the second-highest grade (74.6) among first-round rookies in the preseason, according to Pro Football Focus. Pickett is tied with New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson and is behind just New Orleans Saints offensive tackle Trevor Penning (80.0).
🏈 Former Steelers inside linebacker Joe Schobert’s tenure with the Denver Broncos was short, as he was released on Tuesday.
🏈 The Las Vegas Raiders released veteran running back Kenyan Drake.
🏈 Cincinnati Bengals free safety Jessie Bates III ended his holdout and signed his franchise tag on Tuesday.
The Steelers will return to UPMC Rooney Sports Complex for practice, starting at 12:15 p.m. — Alan Saunders, Nick Farabaugh, Ed Thompson
