|Mar 30 2018 - Le'Veon Bell|
RB Le'Veon Bell posted a cryptic tweet over social media at the apparent negative reaction in the Steel City surrounding his contract situation. Bell, who received the franchise tag from the Steelers for the second straight season, posted the following on Thursday: "It's so hard to be a hero in a city that paints (you) out to be the villain," the 26-year-old Bell wrote. To be fair, it's not exactly clear what Bell's vague tweet is referencing, but perhaps he feels that others view him as asking for too much money. The versatile running back is due $14.56 million if he plays on the franchise tag, but he hasn't signed that tag because he's hoping for a contract that pays him more.
|Mar 29 2018 - Le'Veon Bell|
RB Le'Veon Bell will be back with the Steelers this seaason, general manager Kevin Colbert said. The Steelers applied the franchise tag for the second straight year on Bell, with the sides likely not expected to get a long-term deal completed prior to the mid-July deadline. "(Bell will) be a Pittsburgh Steeler in 2018," Colbert said during a visit to PFT Live. "Unless he did something that he didn't do last year, I think we can assume that if we don't get a long-term deal done he'll show up and he'll be as ready as he can be. Ideally, (we) would love to have him there for training camp. Not only for himself but for the rest of the team." Colbert's reference of the "something that he didn't do last year" pertains to a holdout that extends into the season itself. The Steelers also are not expected to rescind the franchise tender from Bell.
|Mar 28 2018 - Le'Veon Bell|
RB Le'Veon Bell wants the Pittsburgh Steelers to give him a contract worth $17 million a year, Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network reported from the owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. Bell rushed for 1,291 yards, had 655 receiving yards and scored 11 touchdowns last season, and Kinkhabwala said he wants to be paid as a rusher and a receiver. "Everybody associated with this has said that the Steelers want to do a long-term deal," Kinkhabwala said. "In fact, I spoke to (head coach) Mike Tomlin earlier today and he said, 'Everybody knows we're in the business of trying to lock him up for the rest of his career.' However, as (general manager) Kevin Colbert ... told the local media, there's no urgency right now, and here's why: Le'Veon Bell wants $17 million a year."
|Mar 28 2018 - Jesse James|
TE Jesse James spoke out on the new catch rule on Tuesday, approximately three months after the old rule reversed his potential game-winning touchdown against the New England Patriots. "It should have been a touchdown either way. Whether it was the old rule, or this new rule," James told the Steelers' official website after NFL teams unanimously voted in favor of modifications to the catch rule for the 2018 season at the league's owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. "To reverse something on review, it has to be clear cut. I feel like they didn't do a good job on that. It's nice to have the rule clearer."
|Mar 25 2018 - Le'Veon Bell|
RB Le'Veon Bell's discussions with the Steelers are on the back burner for now.
General manager Kevin Colbert, speaking at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando, Fla., said the team figures to pick up discussions with Bell after the draft in late April.
The Steelers placed the franchise tag on Bell for the second straight year and have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal. Should that not come to pass, Bell will play under the one-year, $14.54 million tender.
"More urgent business needs to get taken care of," Colbert said Sunday about negotiations with Bell, according to ESPN.com. "We will reassess where that is. He'll reassess where his interests are as well. I anticipate us continuing that process once we get through the free agency period and maybe even through the draft. The draft can change things on both sides."
|Mar 22 2018 - Daniel McCullers|
NT Daniel McCullers signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, his agent announced. The 6-foot-7, 352-pound McCullers appeared in five games last season, registering only one tackle. He had 17 tackles and a sack in 16 games (one start) in 2016.

|Mar 19 2018 - Jon Bostic|
LB Jon Bostic signed a two-year contract with the Steelers on Monday after he passed his physical. Bostic plays inside linebacker -- the same position as Ryan Shazier, who suffered a serious spinal injury in a game against the Cincinnati Bengals in December and will miss all of 2018. Despite playing the same position as Shazier, Bostic is not approaching his new team with that mentality. "I would never say replace," Bostic told the team's official website. "He is a special player. I am sure he is going to be back at some point. All I am supposed to do is come in here and work hard. "Whatever they ask me to do, I am going to do it, at whatever position it is. I have a lot of versatility. I can do a lot of different things. Whatever they ask me to do, I am going to do it."
|Mar 18 2018 - Jon Bostic|
ILB Jon Bostic agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team announced.
Bostic, 26, had a good season with Indianapolis after sitting out the 2016 season as he recovered from injuries. He made 97 tackles and had one sack in 14 games last year before suffering a season-ending knee injury and being placed on injured reserve.

|Mar 9 2018 - Mike Mitchell|
S Mike Mitchell is expected to be released by the Steelers because of his $8.1 million salary-cap hit, several media sources reported on Friday. However, the Steelers are interested in Mitchell returning next season on a less expensive deal. Releasing Mitchell would save the Steelers, who have $1.022 million in cap space, about $5 million toward that number. Mitchell's departure would open the door for safety J.J. Wilcox, a player the Steelers have interest in bringing back for next season.
|Mar 8 2018 - Le'Veon Bell|
RB Le'Veon Bell vowed to repeat his actions from last year if he doesn't receive a long-term deal. Following the path he traveled in 2017, Bell plans to skip training camp before signing the franchise tag tender the week of the season opener. The 26-year-old noted on Instagram Live that he will not sit out the entire season, however. "Honestly, no, I'm not going to sit out," Bell said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I'm going to be in the facility Week 1. It's going to be a rerun of last year. I'm not going to camp. I'm not doing nothing else extra, OTAs, none of that. I'm going to strictly go to what I have to go to. I want to win every game. I want to have the best statistical career that I (possibly) can, so I want to play in every game that I can possibly play."
|Mar 7 2018 - Antonio Brown|
WR Antonio Brown restructured his contract in a bid to help the team create more salary cap space as it works on a long-term extension for running back Le'Veon Bell. Brown shared a video on his Instagram account Wednesday that showed him signing an amended version of his contract that fully guarantees his 2018 salary. Agent Drew Rosenhaus is overheard explaining to Brown that he is restructuring his deal to help create more salary cap space. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Brown is designating money that would've been owed as part of his base salary to a bonus instead. The MMQB's Albert Breer reported Brown's contract restructuring will free up $9.7 million in salary cap space for the Steelers.

"I gotta get back, bro," Shazier told Nix, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Right now I'm reading a book and it's basically saying trust the process. I'm really trusting the process. I know the end goal. So I'm taking every step of the way, I'm giving everything I got. The therapists are like, 'Man this is crazy; I've never seen anyone work this hard.' They almost see progression every day. They say like some progressions they see week to week, they see from me day to day. I'm really trying to come back and still be a Pro Bowler."
|Feb 15 2018 - Le'Veon Bell|
RB Le'Veon Bell would receive a contract extension this offseason as opposed to the franchise tag if Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert had his way.

The Steelers can apply the tag between Feb. 20 and March 6, after which it would have until July 15 to execute a contract. A franchise tag would pay Bell approximately $14.5 million for the 2018 season.

I think the good news is both sides want to get something done here, and hopefully that will lead to us getting it done." Rooney added that it is possible the Steelers would put the franchise tag on Bell.

And on Monday, Shazier confirmed what Tafoya reported, saying via Twitter that walking remains a struggle for him.
|Feb 4 2018 - Le'Veon Bell|
RB Le'Veon Bell admitted that some of the members of his team didn't appear ready to play in their AFC divisional-round playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last month. The slow start doomed the second-seeded Steelers, who surrendered the game's first 21 points before their second-half surge fell short in a 45-42 setback. Bell said that he "had a sense" that the Jaguars just had more energy from the onset.
"I did (have energy), but you can't control everybody," Bell said on CBS Sports Radio's 'Tiki and Tierney.' "I did. I wanted that game badly. Certain guys out there was not ready to play football. I mean, don't get me wrong, guys woke up in the second half, but it's kind of too late."

DE Cameron Heyward came to the defense of Mike Tomlin after the coach found himself in the line of fire following the team's playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Tomlin requires players and staff to be present at least two hours before kickoff.
|Jan 16 2018 - Ben Roethlisberger|
QB Ben Roethlisberger stands 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, which one would think would make him a strong candidate to run quarterback sneaks in short-yardage situations. Roethlisberger, however, said on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh on Tuesday that quarterback sneaks just aren't preferred by Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. In addition, the 35-year-old said he doesn't have the "freedom to check to a quarterback sneak because we don't have that call if we're not in the huddle."
|Jan 15 2018 - Mike Mitchell|
