Default ecently, he has been in the spotlight for his leisure activities, pa
PITTSBURGH, Pa. Edmonton Oilers Shop . - Mike Tomlin likes his quarterback and wants to keep him. Signing Ben Roethlisberger to a new long-term deal may be the easiest thing to check off on the Pittsburgh Steelers lengthy off-season to do list.Pittsburgh returned to the top of the AFC North in 2014, going 11-5 and finishing with a perfect 4-0 run through December. Staying there, however, will require another big step from the young core on both sides of the ball and some shrewd decision making by a franchise that has now gone four years without a playoff victory, the clubs longest drought in two decades.We didnt realize our goal and our goal is and always will be to be the champs, Tomlin said.The Steelers return to the post-season lasted all of six days. Baltimore pushed them around in a 30-17 wild-card win last Saturday as Pittsburgh struggled to find a consistent rhythm without running back LeVeon Bell, whose hyperextended right knee forced him to watch in sweatpants. Bells knee might be good enough to play in the Pro Bowl later this month and there should be no ill effects moving forward.Just who else will be along for the ride when Pittsburgh begins organized team activities in the spring remains uncertain, especially on defence. The status of everyone from Hall of Fame co-ordinator Dick LeBeau to safety Troy Polamalu and cornerback Ike Taylor is unknown. Tomlin declined to confirm LeBeau would return for a 57th season on the sideline, saying he needed to speak to LeBeau first.Either way, whoever is in charge of the defence will take over a unit in the midst of an identity shift. Polamalu is weighing retirement while Taylor and defensive end Brett Keisel who ended the season injured might not have a choice. Linebacker James Harrison hasnt ruled out one more year after an eye-opening 5 1/2 sacks in 10 games.Here are a couple things to remember for Pittsburghs offseason:ON TO 2015: Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert have started the process of looking to next fall even as the pain of an early post-season exit lingers.It never gets stale, Tomlin said. You better love it because the wheels keep turning. Kevin was like, Hey, sorry about the season, want to talk (salary) cap? Thats Kevins mentality.KEEPING BEN: The Steelers have two months before free agency begins, though their biggest order of business will be in house. They gambled by not signing Roethlisberger to a contract extension and he responded by tying for the league lead in yards passing and tied a career high with 32 touchdown passes. He wants to finish his career in Pittsburgh, but it is going to cost them. Thats fine by Tomlin.Weve got a good quarterback. I like him, Tomlin said. Id like to keep him.Tomlin also dismissed the idea that Roethlisberger and tight end Heath Miller did not receive proper medical attention after briefly leaving during Pittsburghs final drive on Saturday night. Roethlisberger complained of whiplash and Tomlin said neither player displayed concussion-like symptoms.I take offence to assumption we would put those guys in harms way, he said.WHAT IN THE WORILDS: Outside linebacker Jason Worilds will hit the open market as a free agent after registering 7 1/2 sacks. He said Monday he would happily stay in Pittsburgh if things work out but will weigh his options with a hefty payday in the offing.YOUNG CORE: In Bell, wide receivers Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant, centre Maurkice Pouncey and defensive end Cam Heyward, Pittsburgh has a growing group of cornerstones expected to carry the team through the rest of the decade. The Steelers have rebuilt themselves on the run and their streak of 11 consecutive non-losing seasons is the second-longest in the NFL. That still doesnt quite pass the test at the only place with six Vince Lombardi Trophies in the front hallway.Asked to grade 2014, guard David DeCastro shrugged and said F I guess based on the expectation that each year should end underneath celebratory confetti at the Super Bowl.ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: Even after setting a new franchise mark for points and finishing second in total yards, Tomlin is confident the offence can improve.If theres a ceiling in this thing its because you put in on yourself from a perception standpoint, he said. Why cant we get better in all areas?___AP NFL website: Pro32: Head to Head | Professional football news from the Associated Press and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Authentic Customized Edmonton Oilers Jerseys . The closer wasnt available. The road trip, a disaster to that point.

Dickey, even though he was coming off a Cy Young Award in 2012.

Johnny Manziel agreed to a contract with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, becoming the fourth of the teams six draft picks to do so. Terms were not immediately available. The former Heisman Trophy winner will enter training camp next month as Clevelands No. 2 quarterback behind veteran Brian Hoyer, who has been limited during off-season practices while recovering from off-season knee surgery Browns coach Mike Pettine has stressed that Manziel has some catching up to do, but has made it clear that Hoyers lead was not "insurmountable." The Browns moved up in last months draft to select the popular and polarizing Manziel with the No. 22 overall pick. Manziel rubbed his fingers together when he walked onto the stage during the draft, hhis signature "money" gesture that has endeared him to some fans and annoyed others critical of his reputation for partying. Boyd Gordon Oilers Jersey Authentic. Manziel went 20-6 in two seasons at Texas A&M, where he became the first freshman to win the Heisman and earned the "Johnny Football" nickname for his dynamic playmaking abilities. More recently, he has been in the spotlight for his leisure activities, particularly a weekend getaway in Las Vegas. The 21-year-old Manziel hung out poolside with New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, attended a UFC fight and sprayed champagne on patrons in a Vegas hot spot. "If I want to go out and have some fun and it doesnt hinder what my main goals in life are, then I really dont care what anyone has to say," Manziel said after a recent practice.
