Pizza Round, Green Beans, Fruit, and Milk


I’ve been working so hard for this moment; I can’t wait for it to continue and be part of the team and get right back to work honestly.

Said new Steelers’ 1st draft pick, Kenny Pickett, in response to replacing Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers will hold a quarterback competition between Pickett, Trubisky and Mason Rudolph this summer, and heading into the beginning of offseason workouts, the rookie seems to quickly become the favorite.


At last night’s NFL draft, the first five picks of the draft were all on the defensive side of the ball. It was the first time since 1991 that the first five picks of the draft were all defensive players. In 1991, the first six picks were all defenders (and it should be noted, none turned out to be big stars).
