    Scobee to Steelers

    When Shaun Suisham suffered an ACL injury in the Hall of Fame game earlier this month, the Steelers lost one of the league’s most consistent kickers. Suisham, who converted at least 90 percent of his field goal attempts in four of his five seasons in Pittsburgh, will miss all of 2015, a development that led the Steelers to sign Garrett Hartley, who won a Super Bowl with the Saints in 2009. Hartley lasted two weeks. A right hamstring injury on Saturday put his regular-season availability in doubt, and the Steelers were again in the market for a kicker. But this…

The team announced the signing of Vick on Tuesday while simultaneously putting Bruce Gradkowski on injured reserve. From a football standpoint, it’s a pretty strong move. Ben Roethlisberger is a sneaky MVP candidate and has played 16 games each of the past two seasons. Under Todd Haley, he has been a healthy quarterback. Before that, though, Roethlisberger consistently missed time. And those missed games are why the Steelers were willing to…
