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.
Today and every day, we remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice defending our country. pic.twitter.com/6fH6Q5VzRI— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) May 29, 2023
Remember what this day is all about. Home of the free because of the brave.
There’s Calvin Austin going to work. pic.twitter.com/INMfmX5RW8— Nick Farabaugh (@FarabaughFB) May 30, 2023
Finally a true CA3 sighting. Hopefully soon Austin 3:19 says “I just kicked your a$$”.
Newest Steeler Markus Golden says he’s always been a Steelers fan pic.twitter.com/Jv1IRdh8vk— Chris Adamski (@C_AdamskiTrib) May 30, 2023
Golden’s signing is huge for depth and for the development of Nick Herbig. But being a Steeler fan is great to add to the culture.

When did the Steelers sign WWE’s Triple H? Same name, same original hair style.
From Alex Highsmith to Markus Golden, which Steelers defensive lineman (or outside linebacker) would you least want to punch you in the face while running full speed? pic.twitter.com/e2ttlZ6GJH— Brian Batko (@BrianBatko) May 30, 2023
Neither. Call me a wimp, but I’m not too keen about being punched in the face at full speed by anybody, including the water boy.
The Saints have signed veteran TE Jesse James.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) May 31, 2023
The former Steeler TE has carved out a real nice career for himself as it’s going in to 9 seasons as a pro. BTW, Jesse James caught that ball.
Some news from #Steelers camp:— Mike Nicastro (@MikedUpSports1) May 31, 2023
Dan Moore Jr. continues to rotate snaps at RT
He mentioned that he’s worked on that on his own time during the offseason
The position change seems very realistic at this point.
Steelers' Dan Moore Jr. with quite the description of learning to play right tackle after being a left tackle for so long:— Chris Adamski (@C_AdamskiTrib) June 1, 2023
"It’s weird, man. It’s like wiping your butt with the other hand.”
Is the process of butt wiping really that difficult? Wonder if Broderick Jones is ambidextrous?
What I learned from Day 6 of Steelers OTAs:— Brian Batko (@BrianBatko) June 1, 2023
• Cory Trice is making plays on the ball
• Patrick Peterson already seeing time in the slot
• Broderick Jones moving up to the first string when Dan Moore works at RT pic.twitter.com/drIBtF4ObQ
All good news coming out of OTAs, especially for the draft class. Moves seem to be in process to get the rookies significant playing time.
I think it's fair to say, with enough confirmation/quotes/unsolicited comments from players, that Cory Trice has been a star of Steelers OTAs— Chris Adamski (@C_AdamskiTrib) June 1, 2023
Damontae Kazee: "I knew what he could do– I saw his highlights, all of them. But he showed it today: 3 PBUs and a pick."
Cory Trice is shining in shorts, but this doesn’t mean that Joey Porter Jr. isn’t.
The #Commanders tried to trade up with the #Patriots on draft night, but New England wanted a 3rd-rounder back.— Ari Meirov (@MySportsUpdate) June 2, 2023
WSH decided to sweat it out and still got their guy: Emmanuel Forbes.

This is a fun watch. Again, the Jets don’t want to admit it but Bill Belichick got them again, The Steelers were in the right place at the right time.
Happy Birthday to a new favorite of mine, Larry 0. I’m kind of a hypocrite though. I hated the guy back in 2019 when he was with the Browns.
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.
