Ben Roethlisberger ‘Surprised’ Steelers Drafted Mason Rudolph, Won’t Mentor QB

Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t appear to be pleased the Pittsburgh Steelers selected a quarterback in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft. 

During a Friday appearance on Pittsburgh’s 93.7 The Fan, Roethlisberger expressed his dismay at the addition of Mason Rudolph:

Giants brass surely would like to get a better feel for what they have in last year’s third-round pick Davis Webb, who threw for more yards and touchdowns at Cal in 2016 than fellow Pac-12 quarterbacks Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen did in either of their last two college seasons. And the latter two passers are likely top-five picks in next week’s draft.

The Patriots have gone from having no first-rounders in the previous two drafts to having a pair of them for the first time since 2012, when they landed Hightower and defensive end Chandler Jones. As much as the Pats need help at those positions again, the Cooks deal puts them more in the wheelhouse of early values for the offense.

Walker played with the Mets in 2016 and 2017. In six plate appearances vs. Harvey, he’s got a hit and two strikeouts.

I think he’s just going through a stretch where he had a lot of success, went through a stretch when he didn’t have a lot of success, then he was banged up, he was hurt and he’s trying to work his way back and sometimes it’s a lot easier said than done, Walker said.

Yeah, I still keep in touch with some guys over there and obviously with them the best and I really enjoyed my last two years there. They got a good team. It’s fun to be a part of it and it’s fun to be over here, too. A lot good guys here.

Jackson is the heir apparent Baltimore had put off drafting while hoping Flacco would revert to his old form. Jackson’s confidence is such that he proclaimed himself a “Super Bowl-winning quarterback” in the aftermath of Thursday’s selection.tigers_018-115x115

Steelers vs. Giants 2017 live stream: Start time, TV channel, and how to watch online

The Pittsburgh Steelers will boast one of the NFL’s most explosive offenses in 2017. We just probably won’t get to see much of it on Friday.

Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell won’t be playing when the Steelers travel to New Jersey to open their preseason against the New York Giants. Roethlisberger and Brown get to rest, while Bell is continuing to hold out. Bell is not officially under contract until he signs his franchise contract tender.

The Seahawks went 10-5-1 and advanced to the Divisional round last season, but it felt like a disappointment after so many key injuries wiped out their depth. Most of the horses are back, though — Earl Thomas is healed from a broken leg, while Tyler Lockett (also a broken leg) is getting close, though he’s already been ruled out of this game. Doug Baldwin had a practice scare when he got his foot stepped on, but he’s fine.

The scariest injury situation didn’t even happen on the field. Second round defensive tackle Malik McDowell got in an ATV accident that resulted in severe head injuries. The team has been extremely vague on the details, perhaps out of respect to McDowell and his family, but the general feeling is that he won’t play this season. That’s a big loss for the Seahawks, who drafted McDowell to help shore up a suspect interior line.

In non-injury news, Seattle’s running back competition will be heavily scrutinized. Free agent Eddie Lacy is the presumptive favorite, but incumbent Thomas Rawls isn’t going away, and in fact worked exclusively with the first team in practice last week. There’s also pass-catching specialist C.J. Prosise to account for. The Seahawks’ backfield was ruined by injuries last season, but it’s a promising unit on paper if everybody stays healthy.redskins_083_c2b6005825f95d4a-180x180
