The chances of McMillian making the team are slim as there are Conner, Jaylen Samuels, Benny Snell Jr., Trey Edmunds and Malik Williams filling roster spots at the moment.

Steelers Photo of the Season

 

OAKLAND, CA (GSM) – In a, “not-so-happy” new year, the Pittsburgh Steelers ended the 2018 season with a 9-6 record. Although they had more wins than losses , Pittsburgh missed the playoffs when the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Cleveland Browns and secured the 6th seed in the AFC.

This year’s “Photo of the Season” is JuJu Smith-Shuster’s tiptoe touchdown in Oakland against the Raiders on December 9th, 2019. In a losing effort against one of the Steelers’ long standing rivals, the Raiders won the game 24-21 over the “Black N’ Gold.”
