It sure appeared that Tomlin’s confidence was shaken after losing to 2-10 Arizona, 2-10 New England and then Indianapolis in 14 days, going from what could have been 10-4 and fighting for a division title instead of 7-7 and possibly Tomlin’s first losing season ever.
“One week you’re drinking wine, and next week you’re squashing grapes,” Tomlin said Monday. “Obviously, we squashed a lot of grapes as of late. I’m interested in a little wine.”
It sure sounded like he was hearing the outside chatter — about the possibility of his time with the Steelers ending after 17 years — getting louder and louder.
The Steelers signed defensive back Jalen Elliott to the practice squad.
Elliott was signed to the practice squad on Oct. 31, but later released. He was also with the team in training camp.
