Steelers Sights and Sounds: Run Stuffers

Published

on

PITTSBURGH — In 2018, the Seattle Seahawks ran the ball more than any other NFL team and were the only NFL team that ran the ball more than they threw.

So a big part of the challenge that awaits the Steelers’ defense this Sunday is stopping that multi-faceted Seattle rushing attack.

One of the big keys will be the Steelers’ edge players being able to tackle in space so that the interior linemen and linebackers can focus on tackling big back Chris Carson and containing quarterback Russell Wilson.

That put this running back-linebacker drill (with some moonlighting slot corners) into practice on Friday.

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward has been named NFLPA Community MVP for Week 1.

Heyward was honored for installing his first Little Free Library, a book-sharing box placed in underserved communities around the Pittsburgh area.

Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that “inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.”

The installation of the book-sharing boxes marks the launch of the Rufus and Judy Jordan Literacy Project, a new initiative of the Cameron Heyward Foundation that will work to promote children’s literacy and honor his late grandparents, both of whom were lifelong educators in Pittsburgh.

Drafted in first round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, Heyward has spend his entire career in Pittsburgh. He is a three-time Pro Bowler, and has twice received First-Team All-Pro honors.

Heyward and the Steelers agreed to a four-year, $71.4 million contract extension on Sept. 6 that will allow him to retire in Pittsburgh and make him the highest-paid defense player over the age of 30 in NFL history.
