The Pittsburgh Steelers got worse on Saturday, and they weren’t that good to begin with. The Steelers released James Harrison, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and that was a mistake.

Manti Te’o was once considered a sure fire top ten pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and now people question whether or not he would even be worth selecting in the first round.
