Steelers linebacker James Harrison to see less snaps in 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Steelers veteran linebacker James Harrison is expected to see less snaps in 2015, according to linebackers coach Joey Porter per the Pittsburgh Tribune.

"He knows where he is," Porter said shortly after the Steelers drafted Miami (Fla.) outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo on the final day of the NFL Draft. "I told him already, the James Harrison (of before) is over.

"He's going to play his role, and his role is going to be effective. He knows what we're asking out of him, and he's going to be ready to answer the bell."

Porter said he expects Harrison to play roughly 25 snaps per game next season. Pittsburgh took another outside linebacker in Bud Dupree from Kentucky in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.

"You can never have enough pass rushers in the way the game is being played now from the outside linebacker position," Porter said. "We just made our outside linebacker tree a little deeper."

Steelers' pick Bud Dupree plans to learn from James Harrison
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Steelers first-round draft pick Bud Dupree told the media that he can be an every-down player for the Steelers' defense. 

"It’s a great defense already," he said, per Steelers.com. "For Coach Tomlin to believe I can help improve it even more is a blessing for me. I like the aggressive style they play and the way they use the linebackers is great." 

Dupree is also excited to share the field with James Harrison. "I can learn a lot from him," he said. "He has been around the game a while, he is a Pro Bowler, he can teach me. I have to make sure my eyes are big and my ears are open."

Ability to stop run motivated Steelers to pick LB Bud Dupree
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Steelers were particularly impressed with top pick Bud Dupree as a run stopper, which played a role in motivating them to select him, per the team website.

"He is very, very strong at the point (of attack)," said general manager Kevin Colbert. "... He can power rush, He can speed rush. He can put moves together. He can rush off of two feet or out of a three-point (stance). And he can cover. So really this is a gift for us to be able to get this guy at 22."

Mike Tomlin praised his intelligence and versatility, adding that Dupree's knowledge of the history of the game was a plus.

Speculation bloomed that Brown was dissatisfied with his contract, which is scheduled to pay him $6 million this season, but Brown wrote on Twitter that he was spending time with his newborn child and would be back soon. 

The receiver racked up 1,815 yards and 138 catches for the Steelers last season.
