Season 9, Episode 117 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Friday show, Alex Kozora and I immediately talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers now having their entire 2019 draft class under contract after signing cornerback Justin Layne to his rookie contract on Thursday.
With the Steelers second week of OTA practices now concluded, Alex and I have quite a bit to review from this past week. We go over quite a few reports and things said by and concerning Steelers safety Sean Davis, outside linebackers Bud Dupree, T.J. Watt, Olasunkanmi Adeniyi, and Sutton Smith.
Steelers backup defensive back Kameron Kelly also had a notable second week of OTA practices so Alex and I talk about the latest related to him in his attempt to make the 53-man roster this year.
We discuss Davis’ contract situation at length along with what the Steelers might ultimately decide is a fair price for defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, who is also now in the final year of his rookie contract.
Steelers guard Ramon Foster talked quite a bit about a few players that have impressed him so far during OTAs so Alex and I go over what all he had to say. We move on to talk some about the Steelers offensive line depth as OTAs begin to wind down.
What kind of sack and turnover production will the Steelers defense need in 2019 for the team to be successful? Alex and I talk quite a bit about several stats related to that side of the football.
Steelers kicker Chris Boswell addressed the media this past week so we go over his current situation a little bit more and talk briefly about rookie tight end Zach Gentry being asked to switch his jersey number recently.
Alex and I cover a few more items and then proceed to answer a few listener emails we have received recently to close out this episode.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
