--Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau has signed another one-year contract with the Steelers, ending unfounded speculation that he would either retire or coach another team's defense in 2011. LeBeau has said all along that he intended to remain with the Steelers as long as they still wanted him.

--Ryan Clark has ripped into the NFL for its "greed" regarding the rip-offs associated with the Super Bowl and for the lack of progress in getting a new CBA. Clark is the team's player rep.

I'm talking about the same people that want to file a claim because they say we're not negotiating right, we want to take a billion off the top, we want to make us pay for running the football team, the same people that say we want the CBA to expire when we're not going to have any insurance. Those people. Those bright people. Those so compassionate, sympathetic, considerate human beings that decided when you built this building which is supposed to be the most spectacular in the world which holds enough people to have an exciting Super Bowl already - but you feel the need to build more seats and put more seats, and not let them pass inspection. And also you're so considerate and such a sweetheart that you decide not to inform people before the game, so you have people driving from Pennsylvania, driving from Wisconsin, only to realize that you don't have seats. But you know? Those are people. All those people get into heaven, so we'll see."

"I'm not big on going to OTAs and all that anyway now that I'm going into my 10th year. I mean, they can postpone it if they want." - S Ryan Clark on the looming lockout.
