Default Steelers keeping Super Bowl core intact

Steelers keeping Super Bowl core intact
Wednesday, April 15, 2009

The Steelers haven't signed a free agent from another team, and that's just fine with All-Pro outside linebacker James Harrison.

"We won a Super Bowl with the team we have right now," Harrison said Tuesday.

The Steelers have spent the offseason keeping the core of that team together. They have re-signed more than 10 of their players who were free agents.

When asked about the Steelers' offseason, Harrison said he's "pretty happy with it." The eighth-year veteran added that it would have been "ill-advised" for the Steelers to change their approach to the offseason, considering their success.

Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis, a projected first-round pick, was among five college prospects who visited the Steelers yesterday. Oregon's Max Unger, one of the top-rated centers, also visited the team, as did defensive tackles Dorell Scott of Clemson and Sammie Lee Hill of Stillman (Ala.) College and guard Louis Vasquez of Texas Tech.

The Steelers have had 18 known visits by out-of-area prospects. Per NFL rules, they are allowed 30 in advance of next weekend's draft.

Friday is the last day college prospects can visit NFL teams.

In addition to working out at the Steelers' South Side facility, players have been getting fitted for Super Bowl rings.

The Steelers will have their first two Organized Team Activity (OTA) practices Monday and Tuesday. The Steelers will have 12 other OTA practices in May and June.

I think chemistry was a big part of the teams success last year. I also think managements keeping with their core is going to send a message of faith and commitment that will go a long way this year.
