How many wins will Steelers get in 2020? This betting site’s projection might surprise you

By: Chris Adamski, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

What’s your confidence level in the Pittsburgh Steelers for the coming season? A prominent sports gambling website perhaps is higher on the Steelers than you’d might think.’s NFL futures win totals for each team have been updated since the end of free agency. The site bumped up the Steelers’ line from 9 to 9 ½. What’s notable about that is that only four teams have more projected wins — the Baltimore Ravens (11 ½), Kansas City Chiefs (11 ½), San Francisco 49ers (10 ½) and New Orleans Saints (10).

The Steelers are among a group with four other teams (the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles) at 9 ½.

The Steelers won nine and eight games, respectively, the past two seasons, missing the playoffs each time. Their additions in free agency included fullback Derek Watt, tight end Eric Ebron and interior offensive lineman Stefan Wisniewski.

Former Steelers defensive coordinator Woody Widenhofer dies at 77

By: Charean Williams, ProFootballTalk

Former Steelers assistant coach Woody Widenhofer died Sunday at age 77.

“We are saddened to learn of the passing of Woody Widenhofer,” Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement. “Woody played an important role coaching our famed Steel Curtain defense when he helped us win four Super Bowls in the 1970s. He coached some of the best linebackers in NFL history during his time in Pittsburgh and was later elevated to defensive coordinator, where he guided the defense in our Super Bowl XIV victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

“A local native of Butler, Woody will be missed by those who knew him and played under him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Widenhofer family.”

Widenhofer won four Super Bowls as a defensive assistant with the Steelers. He coached the team’s linebackers from 1973-78, and his position group included Hall of Famers Jack Lambert and Jack Ham.

From 1979-83, Widenhofer served as the Steelers’ defensive coordinator.

Panthers release Cam Newton after nine seasons

By: Kevin Patra,

The Carolina Panthers already said goodbye to Cam Newton. The team now made the split official.

The Panthers released the former NFL MVP as soon as Tuesday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo reported. The team later made Cam’s cut official.

”Cam has meant a lot to this organization and the Carolinas,” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said in a statement. “Everyone saw his performances on the field. I had the privilege of seeing how hard he worked off the field, and his commitment to this team when no one was watching. He’s the ultimate competitor and it physically hurts him to lose. He willed this team to victory on many occasions and will always be considered one of the greatest players in the history of this franchise. His contributions to this team, this community and the game of football will leave a lasting impact on our organization.”

Carolina announced last Tuesday that it had allowed Newton to seek a trade. With few potential landing spots, no leverage, and major questions about his health, none materialized. The team moved on a week later.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft instantly became the face of the Panthers franchise, leading Carolina to three straight NFC South titles from 2013-2015, a Super Bowl and four total postseason appearances.
