With all of the Steelers’ 2019 offseason workouts in the rear view mirror, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan base has to suffer through the dog days of summer until the boys of fall return to the gridon. In the meantime, don’t think the news surrounding the black-and-gold is over. As the team disperses for the summer, we continue to provide you with features, commentary and opinions to tide you over until training camp!

Today in the black-and-gold links article we take a look at how both Trey and Terrell Edmunds are not just hoping to make the Steelers’ roster, but to make an impact. Trey looking to be a part of the team in some fashion, and Terrell ready to take his next step forward in his sophomore season.

Let’s get to the news:

  • Two brothers on the same team, ready, and willing, to do whatever it takes to remain together for the 2019 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

‘Tight as a fist’: Steelers’ Edmunds brothers tackle NFL life as roommates

Competition isn’t an option for NFL siblings living together.

It’s a way of life.

The Pittsburgh Steelers brotherly duo, safety Terrell Edmunds and running back Trey Edmunds, like to cook on occasion. Terrell’s go-to dish is crab legs, corn and red potatoes. Trey is known to prepare baked chicken and greens.

“I’ll hear something like, ‘Dad, I made something just like you would,’” said Ferrell Edmunds, himself an NFL tight end from 1988 to 1994. “Then you might hear them go back and forth a bit. That’s what makes the boys so competitive.”

Trey shrugs at the Edmunds way. “We’ve all got that edge,” he said. “That’s just how we were brought up.”

  • Could Johnny Holton be on the edge of cracking the Steelers’ 53-man roster?

WR Johnny Holton has distinct role in mind for Steelers

By: Chris Adamski, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

At first glance, it’s almost impossible to ignore — a coincidental quirk that results in a far-too-easy punchline.

So, Johnny Holton, as the guy who switched places with Antonio Brown, you’re the perennial All Pro’s replacement, right?

“Oh no,” the veteran wide receiver said, a combination of laughing and recoiling in horror at the comparison. “I didn’t think that at all. I don’t look at it that way at all.”

The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t see it that way, either. Holton, most certainly, isn’t thought of as Brown’s replacement. He wasn’t even part of what the team received as compensation for trading Brown, either.

  • Jaylen Samuels took some serious strides in 2018, but he will seriously need to diversify his game if he wants to be considered an every down back in the NFL.

Carter’s Classroom: Samuels must diversify

By: Chris Carter, DKPittsburghSports

Options down the depth chart are going to come into play for Randy Fichtner, Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offense. One of the most important depth players for 2019 could easily be Jaylen Samuels, the only running back not named James Conner with experience in a Steelers uniform.

Samuels was drafted as an H-back from his North Carolina State days as a utility player that filled various roles for his ACC offense. But last year he was strictly a running back who got several snaps in the final games of the season. There are a few components to his game he must improve for 2019, and today we focus on what he brings as a receiving threat:

  • Not Steelers news, but the Bengals just found out they lost their top draft pick for the 2019 season.

Ouch! Bengals lose another first-round draft pick to injury

By: Joe Rutter, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Another year, another first-round draft pick that is down and out for the lowly Cincinnati Bengals.

Already picked to finish at the bottom of the AFC North, the Bengals didn’t help their cause for escaping the basement Tuesday when they announced that first-rounder Jonah Williams, the No. 11 overall selection out of Alabama, will miss the 2019 season after having surgery to repair a torn labrum.

Williams was injured during organized team activities, but the Bengals said he merely was “dinged,” although they didn’t let the player speak to reporters about his health issues.
