Steelers Sights and Sounds: Joey Porter Jr. Sharpens Footwork



Steelers Joey Porter Jr.

UNITY TWP., Pa — At Steelers training camp on Saturday, Joey Porter Jr., Cory Trice, Patrick Peterson, and the rest of the cornerbacks went hard to work on little things, such as footwork and transitions. But they focused heavily on press coverage and other minute details as well.

On Saturday, the cornerbacks went to work with secondary coach Grady Brown. With a lot of inexperience with guys like Joey Porter Jr. and Cory Trice. Meanwhile, there are plenty of players that are new to the team, so they will have to mesh together. Minkah Fitzpatrick and Patrick Peterson have vowed to make that an easier transition. Regardless, the Steelers will have some growing pains there.

Meanwhile, the running backs worked on some techniques with the quarterbacks and other moves that they can pull out of their arsenal. They included UDFAs Darius Hagans and Alfonzo Graham who are trying to push for the final roster spot there. There is a RB3 competition between those two along with Anthony McFarland and Jason Huntley.

There will be a heated competition throughout the rest of the offseason program and up to week one until someone takes the reins on the job. Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren will be the top two that the team can rely upon.
