Let the Akiem Hicks rumors begin.
I'm sure the Steelers will find away to get him some more free $$,
That's the end of my patience. It's time to put him on a restricted list. Don't cut him loose and allow him to get paid elsewhere, but no way he should collect another paycheck from the Steelers until he shows up and participates. They gave him a paid year off. That's enough.
I fully expected him to show for OTA’s and disappointed that he didn’t. However, they are voluntary. If minkah doesn’t show are we going to start claiming he’s holding out?
Andrew Filliponi lol...Where did he hear that? From his main squeeze and phenomenal NFL insider " Aditi the Dingbat "...Whom Tomlin won't give the time of day to, been booted out of Pittsburgh, and is a Cleveland Fan...
I heard the same, and that He is graduating from ND.....So come on back Tuitt.....I miss You. LoL
I heard the same thing and believe the source.
At some point, it’s time to or get off the pot…
I think we need a Fillipponi vs. Fittipaldo catfight, just so people get confused about which person's name they are actually cheering for.
Just having flash back to Leveon Bell's last Steeler offseason. It seemed every other day a player or reporter was saying nothing to worry about Bell would be showing up next week.
I guess Tuitt was in Pittsburgh today. 5/25
Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt is back in the facility, according to The Athletic's Ed Bouchette
But he was there. So was Alualu. TJ Watt. Heyward.
What is Tuitt waiting for? After a year off I would think its time to suit up and be with his teammates. He was strong enough mentally to finish his degree and graduate from ND in this time.
I just think at this point he has moved on from football. I wish him the best and move on with his life's work.
OTA’s are voluntary. It was reported that he is finishing his degree. Not that he finished his degree. Fairly significant difference there
Well I guess we will see in 2 weeks from now when its mandatory.
Well scratch that. Akiem Hicks just signed with Tampa Bay.
That one way or the other should be the end of speculation
Funny how Tampa's cap problems disappeared the minute Brady came out of retirement.
This was presumably decided some time ago and they waited until June 1st to do the paperwork in order to spread the dead cap out. Best of luck to him in his retirement and I hope he can find happiness and peace after what has clearly been a traumatic time in his and his families lives.
This really does suck for the team. There really isn't all that much reason to be optimistic about the run defense. Jack probably helps, but that alone just isn't enough given how terrible they were last season.
**** **** **** fvck
Flores and Austin will make it better.
Second year jump for Loudermilk is needed. Hopefully he proves the Steelers right in trading up for him.
alualu being back will change what happened last year and so will the coaching. wormley, loudermilk, leal, adams and what flores is bringing to TJ and highsmith all will help change last year. another year together with these guys will also help. last year was just that and i can't believe people still go by what happened the year before and think it will be like that forever. that's quite foolish. we have changed so many things for the better even if it's just more reps by guys as starters. keith butler being gone will be the biggest help of all.
