With the 2019 NFL Draft in the rear view mirror, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2019 season is fast approaching, and the news surrounding the black-and-gold is far from over. As the team now turns its attention to mandatory minicamp, there is no shortage of news.

Today in the black-and-gold links article we take a look at cornerback Cameron Sutton. While often overlooked, his role shouldn’t be lost in the CB shuffle as the 2019 season approaches.

Let’s get to the news:

  • Cameron Sutton was one of those popular mid-round cornerbacks drafted by the Steelers, but, considering the success rate of those aforementioned picks, will he buck the trend?

The Steelers’ investment into the cornerback position in recent years has boosted their depth chart to the point that Cameron Sutton struggled to get playing time toward the end of 2018.

With the addition of Steven Nelson and Justin Layne, Sutton has gone from being the first replacement at cornerback to maybe fighting for any defensive snaps in 2019. But that shouldn’t be any reason for Sutton to be left behind.

Here’s why he’s a player I’m keeping my eye on through training camp:

  • Without Antonio Brown on the roster, many are downplaying the potential of a stellar wide receiver group. Donte Moncrief disagrees with that thought process.

Donte Moncrief thinks Steelers can have “electric” WR group

Pittsburgh will be counting on another big season for JuJu Smith-Schuster, but won’t be looking to one player to replace Brown’s numbers alongside him. Donte Moncrief will be part of the group vying for time alongside Smith-Schuster and he feels that he and the other wideouts have the potential to make a big impact.

“As [wide receivers] coach [Darryl Drake] said, you’re always going to be as strong as your weakest guy,” Moncrief said, via the team’s website. “In our room we try to pick everybody up, make sure everybody’s on the same page and make sure everybody’s ready to go to play every position. If we can do that, our receivers room will be electric.”

7 weeks into NFL career, Steelers’ Devin Bush adjusting to life as a pro

That’s just part of the reason that, seven weeks into his own NFL career, Bush feels as if he’s been adjusting well.

“Every day is a lesson learned for me,” Bush said on the opening day of Pittsburgh Steelers mandatory minicamp Tuesday. “I come in, I learn something new every day. I keep my mind open to new ideas and new ways of going about this job and everything that comes with it. Week in and week out, I’ve grown.”

The son of eight-year pro safety Devin Bush Sr. who played at Michigan for longtime former NFL quarterback and head coach Jim Harbaugh, Bush came to the Steelers with high expectations after being the No. 10 overall pick in the draft.

  • David DeCastro missed OTAs due to his second child being born, but when he returned for minicamp he was pleasantly surprised with the team assembled.

David DeCastro: Steelers ‘more team-oriented’ now

By: Jeremy Bergman,

Roethlisberger isn’t the only Pittsburgh player to feel a sense of relief and rejuvenation in the locker room. His guard, David DeCastro, feels similarly, lauding his longtime quarterback in the process.

”I think things have changed pretty well around here, more team-oriented, and that’s the first step,” DeCastro said, per “I think everyone is on the same page. Ben’s always been a great leader to me and I’m excited to play with a guy like that. I have a ton of respect for him. How could you not? He’s one of those guys that you get in the huddle with, he brings you up, because he’s so competitive. I’m just looking forward to getting back on the field with him.”
