Position Listing
Ryan Shazier
News
Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) was unable to practice and received the thumbs-down for Week 14 against Cincinnati. Gilbert was the only player on Pittsburgh's final injury report ruled out for Sunday. Linebacker James Harrison (knee) also missed practice all week and is unlikely to play. He was ruled as doubtful.

Nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder) was the only player on the report designated as questionable, while cornerback Cortez Allen (thumb), cornerback Brice McCain (hamstring), tight end Heath Miller (rest), safety Troy Polamalu (illness), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (rest), linebacker Ryan Shazier (ankle) and cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder) were deemed probable.

Antonio Brown
News
Thanks to some creative math, the Steelers were able to give star receiver Antonio Brown a $2 million bonus for his season, per NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport. 

Brown had considered holding out this season, but reported to camp. The Steelers were able to restructure some contracts and find the extra money, and now Brown will make $8 million this season. 

Brown caught 129 passes for 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.

Garrett Hartley
News
The Steelers signed kicker Garrett Hartley on Tuesday, according to his agent.

Hartley, a Super Bowl winner with the Saints, will replace Shaun Suisham, who tore his ACL during Sunday's Hall of Fame Game.

Injury
Hamstring - IR. Out for season
Jarvis Jones
News
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert wants to see the starting right outside linebacker earn the job this fall, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

With veteran James Harrison re-signing with the team, he and second-year linebacker Jarvis Jones will be in an "open competition" for the job.

Jones was hampered by injuries in his rookie season, limiting him to just seven games, totaling 18 tackles and two sacks. Harrison signed with Pittsburgh midway through 2014, totaling 45 tackles with 5 1/2 sacks in 11 games.

Cam Thomas
News
The Steelers signed Cam Thomas to play defensive end in their 3-4 scheme, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Thomas primarily played nose tackle for the Chargers. He could still see snaps at the nose in Pittsburgh, the report said.

Marcus Gilbert
News
The Steelers created $6.2 million in cap space by restructuring two contracts, according to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Tackle Marcus Gilbert and safety Mike Mitchell had tweaks made to their contracts that won't affect their income for the 2015 season. However, the money they were slated to make from their salaries and roster bonuses are being applied as signing bonuses to free up cap space for the upcoming league year. 

The restructured signing bonuses will be prorated and affect their cap number for future seasons. 

The restructured deals were likely done to help free up money to re-sign linebacker Jason Worilds, linebacker Arthur Moats and cornerback Brice McCain.

L.J. Fort
News
The Patriots announced they have signed four players Tuesday: linebackers L.J. Fort and Cameron Gordon, fullback Eric Kettani and defensive lineman A.J. Pataiali’l .

Gordon and Kettani have both previously spent time with the Patriots, while Fort was on the practice squads of the Seahawks and Bengals in 2014. Pataiali’l was on both the Ravens and Browns practice squads last season. 

Markus Wheaton
News
Third-year receiver Markus Wheaton had his eyes set on playing opposite Steelers stud Antonio Brown this season. But the emergence of Martavis Bryant has Wheaton relegated to the slot position.

He's not complaining about that - he ran 119 routes from the slot a year ago, per Pro Football Focus. That has allowed Wheaton to brace for a permanent move.

"The plays I had last year were customized for me," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "...I'm going to see a lot more. ... I wouldn't say that it is out of my comfort zone, but there are things I need to learn that are different from the outside. Being on the field last year, I learned a lot in terms of reading the defenses and seeing things. Moving me inside, I am still seeing a lot of the same things."

Wheaton enjoyed a semi-breakout season in 2014 with 53 catches for 644 yards and two touchdowns.

Bud Dupree
News
Steelers rookie linebacker and first-round pick Bud Dupree needed all of three practices to sense a difference in his development as an NFL player.

The game is already slowing down.

"The first day was kind of fast for me and the rest of the rookies, but I feel like we are adjusting well and learning the plays on the go," he told the team website. "I think I am adjusting fast to the playbook. I know a lot of it right now, but I want to keep on learning."

Much has changed since rookie minicamp. The game definitely speeds up when the veterans arrive.

"All the vets already know where they are going, know their assignments already," Dupree said. "They have been through a lot of game experience so they know what to expect. Me and the rest of the rookies are just going on what we see right now."

Dupree is especially tuned in to what his fellow linebackers are doing. He is taking their advice in adjusting to a new defense.

"All the fundamental things you need to learn playing football and learning the plays more precise so you don't have to think about it while you're on the field. Just small things like that."

James Harrison
News
Steelers linebacker James Harrison came out of retirement last year and played surprisingly well, and this year, he'll be part of a young linebacker corps eager to prove itself. Harrison will step into a reduced role, but he's still ready to make an impact, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Harrison had 5 1/2 sacks last season and at 37, he isn't getting younger, so the Steelers are planning to keep him limited to 15-20 plays per game. But don't expect Harrison to ease into retirement. 

"Nobody wants to be in a backup role," Harrison said. "If that's your mentality, then you're not in the right sport. Everybody wants to start, but we all have roles to play. I think I can play more than 25 snaps a game when I'm 50."

Bruce Gradkowski
News

DeAngelo Williams
News
After playing his first nine seasons with the Panthers, running back DeAngelo Williams signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Steelers this offseason. Among his many thoughts on the signing, he called it an easy decision, according to the Sporting News.

“I didn’t know they wanted me. I had never been on a visit before,” Williams said. “I was with the same organization for nine years. When I got the call and they said, 'hey we want to bring you in for a visit' I took it as that. Had they said we wanted to bring you in for a signing I would have had a different mindset. I had no idea what was going to transpire when I got here.”

Williams added that he is willing to do whatever it takes to get the team to the next level.

“It’s the opportunity to take maybe one or two reps or whatever it takes to make this team better,” Williams said. “That is what I will do. I want to make it to a Super Bowl and win it. I know this team has that potential and they can do it.

“Coming here was an easy decision. This is a Super Bowl contending team. Every veteran out there, veteran or rookie, they want to go to the Super Bowl and win it and get the best opportunity. I think the best opportunity is here in Pittsburgh.”

Williams has rushed for 6,846 yards on 1,432 carries with 46 rushing touchdowns in his career.

Le'Veon Bell
News
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell dropped four pounds in the offseason and said he reported to camp at 2.9 percent body fat. Bell anticipates the lighter weight and low body fat will help with his quickness.

Bell had a breakout year in 2014, rushing for 1,361 yards and eight touchdowns. He added 83 catches for 854 yards and three touchdowns.

Dri Archer
News
Steelers speedster Dri Archer got 17 offensive touches as a rookie last season, rushing 10 times for 40 yards and catching seven passes for 23 yards. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley called Archer "a unique talent" and said he wants to get him the ball more often in 2015, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

"He is probably the fastest guy on the field wherever we go," Haley said. "At the same time he is in a little bit of a difficult spot because we have a guy in Le’Veon [Bell] who is capable and you really want on the field as much as possible. In a lot of places where you have running backs coming off the field, Le’Veon tends to get stronger as the games goes on. You hate to ever take him off the field. I am a big believer of putting your best 11 guys on the field as many snaps as you can.

"That put Dri in a little big of a difficult spot being a rookie coming from a little smaller school. When you get guys like that, sometimes the transition time is a little longer than we all would like, himself included. I really feel with a year under his belt, even though there wasn’t great production anywhere; a year, plus another offseason and training camp, a full room in an NFL weight room, I think Dri will come back more experienced and still has that outstanding characteristic of speed.

"The important thing is that we do have a role for him if he is going to have a helmet on Sundays and he gets his five and six touches a game. Any one of those plays he has the chance to take it to the house with that speed. Let’s just have a little patience and let him continue to develop and we will definitely have a plan to get him touches throughout the season.”
