Maulet, Finney, and Coward Re-Signed

With the Pittsburgh Steelers placing Stephon Tuitt, Anthony McFarland, and Zach Banner on injured reserve they are able to bring back three players that were released yesterday.

There were some odd roster choices yesterday including only carrying four cornerbacks, and seven offensive linemen. Those numbers quickly changed today. The Steelers brought back veterans BJ Finney, and Rashaad Coward on the offensive line, and cornerback Arthur Maulet.

Finney will serve as the primary backup at guard and center. Coward will add more depth to the line, but likely will be inactive for gameday.

The Steelers appear set to use Cam Sutton as the slot corner to begin the season. That doesn’t mean Maulet won’t find some time there in a limited capacity, but it’s clear the defense is better with James Pierre outside and Sutton in the slot then keeping Pierre off the field in favor of Maulet.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
