    Around the League: Training Camp



    Mike Wallace is holding out. The Steelers have been using Emmanuel Sanders in his spot. I think that he will eventually report, but this could be a wake-up call for fans who think that Brown would flourish without Wallace. Brown's route running still needs to improve, he is not the vertical threat that Wallace is and I could see teams doubling down on him. Eventually, a choice will have to be made. I just think that this could bring people down to earth about the comparison.

    Maurice Jones-Drew is also holding out and I can't blame him. What they've done to him in Jacksonville should be criminal.

    Revis reported to the Jets today, so he won't be holding out.

    What a pity.

    Packers have Charles Woodson taking snaps at SS after cutting Charlie Peprah.

    Some Steelers fan called into the radio saying he wants them to swap Wallace with MJD.

    MJD still would want a new contract and the Steelers don't have any cap room. Haha.

    Honestly I don't see the problem with Isac Redman. He looked solid when he took over from Mendenhall as the starter.

    Redman is going to have trouble taking the majority of snaps for a full season, for the first time. He will wear down toward the end of the season.

    Niners' safety, Dashon Goldson, signs his tender.

    Why? Didn't they sign him to a $31 million (5 year) extension 3 years ago? That's an average of over $6 mil. per, and probably a high amount back then.
    If I'm reading this right, he has approx. $4 1/2 and $5 mil. for 2012/13.
    Again, why is what the Jags are doing "criminal" according to you? ... Bc

    For the Steelers, they seem to find wideouts.
    They still have Cotchery and they drafted Toney Clemons.
    He is 6'2", 210 and runs in the 4.4-4.5 range.
    He has a 36" vertical and pretty good hands. (Yes, I know he is a 7th rounder from Colorado)
    I'm thinking they will try to get him into the lineup as much as they can if he performs early.
    And remember, the Steelers have changed up their offense this year, so let's see.
    They brought in some good, young talent on the Oline, have some big TEs.
    They have Redman and Clay as big backs and Rainey as a scatback back there.
    I wouldn't doubt if they try to run it more.

    I also expect the Steelers to try and run the ball more. However, I do not expect them to be good enough at it to lead them to a division title. The one person that might have the most trouble adjusting is the QB. He also has a tendency to hold onto the ball longer than he should, at times, but has made a living off of it. When you combine his ability to extend the length of plays, with the speed of Mike Wallace, you had a dangerous combination. Even with a new system, Ben is still going to want to extend the play.
