We here at this establishment are as guilty as any, but sometimes what matters the most is the overall “fit” with a team.This terms is clearly referring to how the athlete’s skill set translates with how the team likes to do business. For instance, a 4-3 defensive end isn’t always going to transition well to a 3-4 outside linebacker. Therefore, this wouldn’t always be considered a good “fit”.The fine folks at Pro Football Focus recently ranked the best fits of the 2019 NFL Draft, and low and behold there was a Steelers draft selection who made the cut. None other than Toledo wide receiver Diontae Johnson. See what PFF had to say about Johnson, and why he is such a good fit for the black-and-gold offense.The path to the field is certainly available, but not certain for Johnson. If the team has him as only a slot receiver, he will have to be out the likes of Eli Rogers and Ryan Switzer to get snaps in that regard. Considering he can play the outside as well, Donte Moncrief and James Washington stand in the way of him becoming a fixture for Ben Roethlisberger in the offense.If you look at the names I just mentioned, it goes to show there is a chance Johnson can impress and see more snaps, but the reality is although the fit might be there, nothing is certain for the rookie wide receiver on Day 1.The fact Johnson plays special teams is a huge bonus for his playing time, but even in this position he will have to show he can bring more to the table than Switzer David DeCastro Jersey , considering Switzer handled both kickoff and punt return duties in 2018.Fans should be excited to see Johnson, not just because he has many of the traits Antonio Brown has/had coming out of Central Michigan, but because he could be a valuable weapon in Randy Fichtner’s offense. His route running, quick cutting ability will work well alongside JuJu Smith-Schuster in a scheme which should result in severe matchups for opposing defenses.What are your expectations for Johnson in 2019? Let us know in the comment section below, and be sure to stay tuned into BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black-and-gold as they head into offseason workouts. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ season is over, but if you think the news surrounding the black-and-gold is over — think again. For the drama-filled Steelers, things are just heating up, and this is where the daily links article comes in. You might have missed some key news, and we fill you in and give you the latest, and sometimes greatest, news surrounding the Steelers.Today in the Black-and-gold links article we take a look at the latest news surrounding Antonio Brown officially requesting a trade from the Steelers. At this point, it is worth noting it is the San Francisco 49ers who are leaders in the clubhouse, in terms of odds Darrius Heyward-Bey Jersey , to land Brown via trade.Let’s get to the news:If Antonio Brown is traded, 49ers have best odds of getting himBy: Joe Rutter, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewCurrent and former San Francisco 49ers players have courted Antonio Brown over the past six weeks, and that appears to be the destination that makes the most sense for the disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver.According to, the 49ers are the favorite to land Brown, who has formally requested a trade. has installed the 49ers as a +200 to acquire Brown in a trade.San Francisco tight end George Kittle tagged Brown in a tweet shortly after the 2018 season concluded. And 49ers Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice has said in interviews that Browns wants to play in San Francisco.The New York Jets, listed at +500, have the second-best odds of landing Brown, according to the betting site. Other potential suitors include the Oakland Raiders (+650), Miami Dolphins (+1,000), Dallas Cowboys (+1,300) and Indianapolis Colts (+1 Jordan Berry Jersey ,500).Despite Brown’s trade request, the Steelers remain listed at +350. Brown has played his entire nine-year career in Pittsburgh and resides in Miami, but he’s no stranger to the West Coast. Brown recently spent some time in California and attended the Grammy Awards on Sunday night in Beverly Hills.Gambling site ignores other needs, has QB Kyler Murray on Steelers’ radarBy: Joe Rutter, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewBy using draft picks on a quarterback in the past two years, the Pittsburgh Steelers have no need to address the position in 2019.That’s especially true with starter Ben Roethlisberger, the NFL’s passing yardage leader in 2018, hoping to play several more seasons.Josh Dobbs is entering his third year and Mason Rudolph, a third-round pick in 2018, will be pushing him for the backup job behind Roethlisberger this offseason.And with areas of weakness at inside linebacker, cornerback, outside linebacker and possibly wide receiver, the Steelers have other pressing issues in the draft.Still Alejandro Villanueva Jersey , that hasn’t stopped one gambling site from putting the Steelers among the NFL teams that could take Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Kyler Murray in the first round.One day after the former Oklahoma quarterback spurned a pro baseball career and declared for the NFL Draft, listed the Steelers as having 14-1 odds of taking Murray in the first round. Seven other teams have better odds of selecting Murray, according to BetOnline.The Miami Dolphins are the 3-2 favorite, followed by the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Giants (5-1 odds apiece), followed by the Oakland Raiders (6-1), Arizona Cardinals (7-1), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12-1) and Washington Redskins (12-1). Also listed at 14-1 are the Cincinnati Bengals an Denver Broncos.The Steelers have the No. 20 overall pick in the draft. BetOnline has set Murray’s over/under draft position at 9.5. ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. has Murray among his top seven prospects.(To read more, click the link in the headline...)Tim Benz: Le’Veon Bell’s pathetic pouting about feeling ‘appreciated’By: Tim Benz, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewLe’Veon Bell sent out this tweet last week.It’s not the first time Bell has whined about feeling underappreciated .The guy makes a good point. I mean, a contract that would’ve paid him $45 million over the first three years? Talk about a lack of appreciation.I mean, that’s one step removed from having someone spit in your face and tell you it’s raining.That poor Bell. The Rodney Dangerfield of running backs. No respect, I tell ya! No respect.Maybe I’m leaping to conclusions.Or maybe I’m just connecting the dots right in front of my face.Sure. I suppose that tweet could’ve had something to do with some positive words about his upcoming rap album. Or maybe someone complimented his jump shot at L.A. Fitness.But Bell sent that tweet moments after he publicly flirted with the Ravens on Twitter last week, then he got acknowledgment from Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson in the form of a Twitter follow.My gosh Chris Boswell Jersey , in 2019 that’s roughly the same thing as going steady, isn’t it?So, between that and his previous tweets, I’m going to assume this is football related.Is this guy serious? A pro athlete with this much acclaim, fortune, talent, and accomplishment needs public flattery and adulation in a Twitter-follow to feel appreciated?Make me puke.Quick! Someone tell Art Rooney II to get on Instagram. Maybe if he lobs a mention Bell’s way, he’ll sign for the league minimum.(To read more, click the link in the headline...)
