Week 2 OTAs begin
As promised, I watched Rashard Mendenhall a little more closely today as the Steelers began their second week of OTAs.
Mendenhall looked good on the inside running plays and made an excellent cut on one play in particular, doing a nice jump stop and change of direction.
He looks like he's running with more confidence.

The 5-6 Logan, dubbed "Half-Pint" by his teammates, was an explosive running back in the CFL, but probably wouldn't have the size to contribute at that position in the NFL.
He'll be fighting a numbers game no matter where he lines up, but playing wide receiver would give him a better chance of making this team.

That should get the internet posters going.

Former center Jeff Hartings was in the building today and I barely recognized him. Hartings looks like he's down to about 220 pounds.
