Steelers Agree With Grimble, Canaday On Extensions

A day after the Steelers were shockingly bounced from the playoffs, the team has already begun shaping their 2018 roster. The team announced this afternoon that they have signed backup tight end Xavier Grimble and long snapper Kameron Canady to one-year contract extensions.

Grimble, 25, played in his second season in the NFL this past year. The tight end had a minimal role on the offense, catching just five passes for 32 yards and a touchdown this past year. He’s firmly behind fellow tight ends Jesse James and Vance McDonald on the Steelers’ depth chart entering the offseason.

Canaday, 24, signed with Pittsburgh last February, but was released in May after the team drafted another long snapper this past April. However, the Canaday was ultimately brought back for training camp and went onto win the job in the preseason, going on to play in all of the Steelers games in 2017.

    How were they “shockingly bounced”when Pittsburgh’s defense sucked all season? And their coaching is the worst in the NFL. Only people who didn’t watch their games are shocked.

      Their coaching was so bad that had they had good coaching they’d have gone 16-0 instead of ‘just’ 13-3.

      While the defense did lose the game, the Steeler defense was ranked number 11 this year. They weren’t all bad, lots of bright spots. A lot of their struggles came from Butlers play calling abilities. This coming from an avid steeler fan.

      Because the defense threw the interception deep in Pit territory and also gave up a fumble TD off a sack and also called for a terrible onside kick.

      Damn you Pittsburgh defense!

      • They did give up 38 points to a Jaguars team that only scored 10 points the week before. Even if you take out the points from the short field interception and failed onside kick, thats still 28 points. You can’t be giving up that many points to this Jaguars offense and still expect to win against their defense…and this is coming from a Jags fan.

          yup….but to claim the defense was at fault for the loss is wrong. both sides share the blame. this coming from a packer fan.
