05:53 PM - February 25, 2017. Written by Steelers4190
We were very active in Free Agency looking to add depth and a few starters. Unfortunately we weren't able to grab any of those 2nd tier guys and we lost ILB L. Timmons to the Giants for a measly 350k more.


QB L. Jones - 2yrs $4.06M - We were able to bring back Landry at what we feel is a fair deal. He is exactly what we want from a back up QB. Cheap and good enough to keep us afloat while the other stars go win us the game if Ben was to miss time. His agent deserves some praise for the length as his price may increase in two years and he may have a chance to compete for the starting gig if Ben hangs them up.

RB D. Williams - 1 yr $1.78M - We brought back D-Will to compete for 2nd guy snaps. With RB Karlos Williams coming off suspension and being younger he may push DeAngelo out of the rotation. If that happens not much is invested in DeAngelo and allows us to keep a veteran guy who is loved with the locker room as insurance.

CB Buster Skrine - 2yrs $1.87M - With Will Gay's abilities starting to diminish rapidly and Senquez Golson being a question mark we badly needed help in the slot. Skrine will compete with those two for slot work while also allowing us to rotate Gay or Golson on the outside if the need were to arise at 28 years old Skrine should reach the end of his contract before his physical abilities start to decline.

Draft Analysis/Grades:

Rd1 (30) London Clear Florida State EDGE 6'7" 259 lbs

London Clear's physical talent cannot be denied. He was a force at Florida State where he absolutely wrecked the ACC leading the conference in QB hurries and balls batted at the LOS with his immense length. He is great burst off the ball and polished for a young player with his hands. It will be seen if he can ever bend like effectively and he will also have to get use to playing from a two point stance as he played exclusively with his hand in the dirt. There are also above the neck issues that may hamper his development, but if the Steelers can get him to "get it" they COULD have a dominant pass rusher for the next decade. The pick seems to be boom or bust. GRADE: B

Rd2 (30) Roy Simmons Michigan WR 6'1 222 lbs

Roy Simmons was one of the most polished and productive WRs in the draft. He only fell to round two due to him lacking elite speed. The lack of that top end speed has never hampered him before as he led all WRs in the B1G conference in YAC and broken tackles. He craftiness and physicality make him a big time playmaker. The biggest hurdle for him will be finding targets as he enters a full WR room in Pittsburgh, but don't be surprised if he starts to contribute early. GRADE: A-

Rd3 (30) Rasheem Calloway Central Michigan EDGE 6'5 263 lbs

The Steelers head back to the Central Michigan well to double dip at the EDGE position. Calloway is very strong and should be able to hold the edge. He has an elite burst off the LOS, but he seems to lack a plan of attack. He has shown great bend, but he will need to develop counter moves. Grade: B -

Rd4 (30) Rajion Heuerman Missouri CB 5'10 194 lbs

Heuerman is a fiesty corner who is very impressive in short area bursts. While he doesn't have top end long speed he acceleration and ability to stop and start on a dime make him formidable in the slot. He will allow the Steelers to have more flexibility on the back end. The Steelers suddenly have a log jam at a position they were concerned about heading into the offseason. GRADE: B+

Rd(5) 30 Crosby Humphries Princeton S 5'11 201 lbs

Humphries is a physical and heady safety that has shown the abilities to play deep zone and also near the LOS. With Mike Mitchell climbing in age the Steelers may have found their new running mate to impressive young Sean Davis. Grade: B

ESPN ALERT: Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin has announced his retirement from the NFL. Mike Tomlin leaves the game with a record of 103-57, 2 Super Bowl appearances, and 1 Super Bowl title.

Twitter Wire:

@AdamSchefter: @Steelers were made aware of Tomlin situation ahead of time. Team has already begun process.

@RapSheet: Word is the Steelers will interview 3 candidates this week. OC Todd Haley, OL Coach Mike Munchak, and a college guy.

@Rapsheet: No word on who the college coach is yet.

@JasonLaCanfora: @Steelers HC Mike Tomlin has retired

@AdamSchefter: @Steelers have already met with other external candidates. Have narrowed it down to the three previously mentioned.

@EdBouchette: The third candidate is IU HC Nick Cotner. Interesting.

@gerrydulac: Todd Haley and Nick Cotner are the two favorites for the job. One has to think Haley gets it due to being in house.

ESPN ALERT: Pittsburgh Steelers name Nick Cotner as Head Coach. Cotner served as the Head Coach of Indiana University for the last four seasons. The Hoosiers compiled four straight winning seasons including back to back 10 win seasons in the last two. Nick Cotner leaves the Hoosiers after winning the school's first conference championship since 1967. The Steelers were attracted to Cotner's ability to create a winning atmosphere at a place like Indiana and his football IQ. Cotner is expected to work closely with GM Kevin Colbert in roster decisions. When asked about the expectations of the job with such an established roster Nick Cotner was quoted saying "I grew up a Steelers fan. This franchise has only had three coaches over the last half century and all three have won championships. Trust me, I understand the pressure. I very much look forward to the challenge". Cotner doesn't anticipate making any coaching changes this offseason unless staff members opt to leave on their own which he doesn't anticipate happening.

CB J. Gilbert

As seen many of our Unrestricted guys were allowed to test the market. We are able to tag Bell to keep him around one more season. We will try to hammer out a long term deal during the summer. We would also like to extend Brown during the summer as well. Another point of interest will be to attempt to lock up our starting LT A. Villanueva to a long term deal. There isn't a rush to do so as he has to play under his ERFA status this season if a deal isn't hammered out. We will enter Free Agency with some money to spend. We will look to find a pass rusher and some CB depth. We will not break the bank though. We will also look to bring back a few of our guys, but again we will not over pay for them.

Even with the Saints posting a pedestrian 1-4 record coming into Ford Field, the Lions knew they would be in for a battle against Drew Brees and the Saints.

Matthew Stafford threw two touchdowns, including a go-ahead scoring toss to Taylor Gabriel in the fourth quarter as Detroit came away with a tight 31-26 victory. The win is their third straight after dropping the season's first two games.

Involved in trade rumors throughout the week and returning from injury, Eric Ebron made a few tough catches and scored his first touchdown of the season. Meanwhile rookie Bobby Herrera continues to be a pleasant surprise as he posted 5 catches for 60 yards.

It wasn't a great day running the football for the Lions who only managed 78 yards on the ground, but Detroit did score two rushing touchdowns in the win. One of which came from Zach Zenner in a goalline situation.

The Lions take on the Baltimore Ravens (2-4) next week who have won two consecutive games after an 0-4 start, meanwhile the road only gets tougher for New Orleans as they host Green Bay (3-3).

Game Notes
After an 0-2 start the Lions seem to be back on track with two straight division victories over the Bears and Vikings. Meanwhile the Saints are going in reverse with three straight losses since a week 2 victory over the Rams.

New Orleans QB Drew Brees is playing at his usual level with 10 TDs and nearly 1,500 yards through the first 5 games, but even he can't carry a depleted offense that is lacking a true threat in the backfield. Add in a defense that can't stop the run and that is a recipe for disaster. While the Lions still have holes in their secondary, the defense is making enough plays to offset their struggles.

The Lions have won three straight games against the Saints and the overall series is tied at 12-12-1.

The Lions got an interception return for a touchdown from safety Glover Quin and a punt return touchdown from rookie Demarcus Sheffield as the Lions got back to .500 with their second straight win 44-24 over Minnesota.

While Matthew Stafford didn't have his best game in his first game back since a week 1 injury, he minimized the mistakes and managed the offense well. Ameer Abdullah reached the century mark in rushing yards for the second time this season with 117 yards on 26 carries and a touchdown.

Detroit was able to force two interceptions of Sam Bradford and keep the Vikings passing attack out of the endzone. Darius Slay kept lead receiver Stefon Diggs in check with just 1 catch for 10 yards. The one bright spot for Minnesota came in the run game as backup running back Jerick McKinnon, pushed into action due to Adrian Peterson's injury, ran for 120 yards and 3 TDs.

The Lions will look to make it three in a row after an 0-2 start when they face the struggling New Orleans Saints (1-4) at Ford Field.
