ORCHARD PARK, NY (GSM) — After a slow start to the 2021 season opener against the Bills, the Steelers got the “splash plays” they were hoping for.
Johnson had a modest 5 receptions for 36 yards. However, his score put the Steelers ahead of 12-10 in the fourth quarter. After the extra point, Pittsburgh was ahead by three and followed up with a blocked punt on the ensuing drive to quickly increase the score to 20-10 (including the extra point).
Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin said about his defense and special teams, “We needed a splash play like that. We spotted them three to start the game. At halftime I heard a lot of the core special teams players Derek Watt and others saying that we had to even the score from that perspective. We needed splash in that phase of the game, and boy they delivered and delivered big.”
The final score was Steelers 23 – Bills 16. Pittsburgh will host the Las Vegas Raiders on September 19th in the 2021 home opener at Heinz Field.
PITTSBURGH (GSM) — The difficult decision to shave the remaining players from an NFL team has come to reality. For the Steelers, the final cuts were made Tuesday at 4pm and the team has been assembled for the battles leading up to Super Bowl LVI.
Among notable cuts, running back Jaylen Samuels who has been with the team since 2018 and punter Jordan Berry, added to Steelers in 2015. Quarterback Joshua Dobbs was placed on the injured reserve list to make way for offseason pickup Dwayne Haskins who was picked up off of waivers in January of this year.
The following list of the final roster is credited to to the Pittsburgh Steelers in alphabetical order:
Quarterbacks (3): Dwayne Haskins, Mason Rudolph, Ben Roethlisberger
PITTSBURGH (GSM) — “Najee Harris is the second coming of Franco Harris,” says football guru and NFL scout Smokin’ Jim Frazier. Only time will tell, but he very well could be!
Harris leaves the Alabama Crimson Tide as the top running back on the 2021 draft board to a Steelers team that cut ties with James Conner, the team’s former starter at the position. Harris racked up 4624 total yards from scrimmage with an impressive 3843 yards by way of rushing.
Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin and General Manager Kevin Colbert took questions from the media Thursday, moments after the 1st-round selection. “He’s got a nice combination of size, strength and athleticism. His picking vision is excellent in terms of finding holes,” Tomlin said. “He shows patience while doing that. He’s a complete back.”
