    Roethlisberger laments Le’Veon Bell’s absence from OTAs

    Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell currently doesn’t have a contract. Which means that he can’t, absent a rarely-used (by veteran players) letter of protection, participate in offseason workouts. “I’m not worried about the chemistry, but I wish he’d be here just because he’s one of the pieces to our puzzle,” Roethlisberger told reporters, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    The Steelers took a quarterback in the draft for the first time since 2013 and they now have him under contract. Dobbs started 35 games for the University of Tennessee and had a 53-29 touchdown-to-interception ratio over the course of his career in Knoxville. Landry Jones signed a two-year extension this offseason so Dobbs will likley be starting out his NFL career as the No. 3 quarterback in Pittsburgh.

In 11 seasons, Kennedy recorded 448 tackles, six forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and three interceptions. In 1992, Kennedy was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.
