Season 2, Episode 107 of The Terrible Podcast is up and David Todd and I start off with a little house keeping as we recap the draft picks that have been signed thus far by the Pittsburgh Steelers and talk a little about the free agent visitors that were in town this week in the form of Matt Roth, Brandon Johnson and Dave Rayner. We also note the release of undrafted free agent kicker Grant Ressel in addition, who apparently was released right after the rookie camp wrapped up.
we move on to talk about the pectoral injury suffered by Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor on Thursday and how big of blow that is to their defensive line. This talk leads us to talking about a few other moves that teams have made in free agency around the league and it ends by us circling back around to us bashing the Browns draft again. Will Mike Holmgren be on the hot seat if the Browns finish under .500 again in 2012?
We discuss the comments that were made by the recently retired Chris Hoke Thursday on 93.7 The Fan in relation to rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta\’amu and this leads to us discussing the Steelers defensive line as whole, and more specifically the prospects of Cameron Heyward, who is heading into his second season.
We answer a question from a listener about the original contract length of wide receiver Antonio Brown before getting to our interview we had Friday morning with third year running back Jonathan Dwyer. Dwyer tells us a little bit about his transformation from college to the NFL and how his surgically repaired foot is doing that landed him on injured reserve at the end of last season. Dwyer tells us that he has decided not to train with Tom Shaw in July now, but will instead train with the trainer of Brown and Lawrence Timmons instead. We ask Dwyer about the adjustment involved in learning the new offense being put in by Todd Haley and how that is going so far. We also get Dwyer to talk briefly about the fullback position in the new Haley offense in addition. Dwyer also tells us about his 2nd Annual Youth Football Camp that will take place Thursday, June 14-16 at Kell High School in Marietta, Ga. The proceeds from the camp will benefit The Kell High School Football Program and The Jonathan Dwyer ADD Neuro Lab, and you can get more info and register for the camp by visiting http://jondwyeryouthcamp.eventbrite.com/.
