Default Brentson Buckner

Anyone know the real story on why the Steelers let him go. This guy was a force DE in our 3-4. What I kept hearing is the Steelers were sick of his locker room lawyer antics.

What was the deal? He was one of my favorites.

He did not like playing in the 3-4 defense, thought of himself more as an up the field playmaker, played out his contract, signed with teh Carolina Panthers for the duration of his career.

I thought he went to Cincy (who was running the 3-4) first then SF then Carolina.

He was known for bragging about the money he'd make in future contracts in the locker room and really came over as an arrogant prick. I believe he was traded away in the off-season of '94 or '95.

Steelers Ship Buckner to Chiefs


The Pittsburgh Steelers traded defensive lineman BRENTSON BUCKNER to Kansas City on Friday in exchange for a seventh-round draft choice this year. The 6-foot-2-inch, 310-pound Buckner, 25, had his best season in 1995, when he started 11 games at end and five at nose tackle.
