The focus for the Steelers is now 2023 and despite no games for a while, there’s a slew of news coming out of Steeltown. With training camp right around the corner, things are heating up in the Steel City. Let’s all take a look at the week in the ‘burgh together.

Happy Fathers Day to all. The Steelers have never sent be a gift and I’ve brought two Steelers fans into the world.

Freedom is definitely something to celebrate and be cherished.
After a tryout through minicamp, the Steelers plan on signing LB Nick Kwiatkoski. He played collegiately at West Virginia and his high school football at Bethel Park.— Colin Dunlap (@colin_dunlap) June 19, 2023
The former Black Hawk and Mountaineer was recently a $21 Million man. He’d look good in black and gold.
Client @RexSunahara has signed with the @steelers and will compete with client Christian Kuntz.— Special Teams U™ (@SpecialTeamsU) June 19, 2023
Good luck to both of you!#longsnap #longsnapper #longsnapping #WelcometotheU #ELITE #RESULTS @XFL2023 @LBSAgent pic.twitter.com/CYcMK3ezsn
This isn’t the first go around for Rex. The Steelers are obviously serious about bringing in competition for Christian Kunitz.
Some players take a longer while to adapt. Cam Heyward didn’t start to really flourish until Year 3. Hopefully, KG could be one of them.
Nick and Rex are official, but it’s at Anthony Miller’s expense.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Clark Haggans has died.— Colin Dunlap (@colin_dunlap) June 21, 2023
He was 46.
Haggans played for the Steelers from 2000-07, was a 2000 5th round pick of the organization and member of the Super Bowl XL championship team. pic.twitter.com/s1tNqDBECw
This is so sad to Steeler Nation. Clark was a big piece of the championship puzzle in
Outsiders don’t know what Steeler Nation knows, but this is a much better stable than most fans and media think.
Big name? No. But Mike Wagner was a big-time player in that 70s dynasty. All that and an epic moustache too.
Look at the calendar, the month is June. The Steelers are definitely not dealing Levi.
Eric Green was the prototypical 2023 TE 33 years before. Too bad he didn’t stay in Steeltown longer.

KP8 has priorities. He missed out on the Taylor Swift concert but took the time to work out with his new receiver during his wedding week. This is the personification of dedication.
#Steelers second round DT Keeanu Benton has signed his rookie contract, source said. Benton has guaranteed money in the third year of his contract, the first time ever for the 49th pick. The deal was negotiated by @JoeNDiBenedetto and @KenSarnoff of 1 OF 1 Agency.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 23, 2023
Guaranteed money? This shows what the Steelers think about the Dancing Bear. Benton might very well be the steal of the draft.
No. 1 Pick signed and sealed. Let’s see him deliver.
This was the significant week that was for the Steelers, mixed-in with my black-and-gold loving life. I’m sure next week will be full of Steelers happenings as well, so we’ll have to do this again. Have a great week, but better yet, have a BAD one.
