Steelers alumni file, Bears note

Former Steelers linebacker Joey Porter is having knee problems at Dolphins camp. He was released earlier this year to make room under the salary cap.

The Bears, on the other hand, traded Dante Wesley to the Patriots. Meanwhile, the Bears defense is praising the offence, especially first round pick Greg Olsen. Brian Urlacher said "He catches the ball. He gets open. He blocks. He’s smart..."

Steelers post-game

The Steelers spanked the Saints 20-7 Sunday in the Hall of Fame game. Not that it really means anything, except Coach Tomlin had his players a little sharper than Coach Payton. You can see the box score here. Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger played only one series, but looked good. He hit a pass to Cedrick Wilson for a 55-yard gain that eventually lead to a touchdown.

John Clayton from ESPN had this interesting piece about Big Ben's development.

The Steelers' next pre-season game is Saturday against Green Bay.
