A quick daily look at what’s happening around Steelers Nation…

Non-Steelers related: Sam Bradford agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams late Friday night, and it’s a whopper of a contract. It’s going to pay him a guaranteed — and unthinkable — $50 million. Meanwhile, Eric Berry, the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, became the highest-paid safety in NFL history thanks to the deal he signed with the Chiefs. Yup. There’s nothing wrong with that system.

– Ed Bouchette had the big score on the first day of camp, getting a one-on-one with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. On what to expect from fans on Saturday: “Driving up here today I was talking to my dad, and for the first time it hit me about what is about to happen and – who knows? I got scared. I really did.” [Post-Gazette]

To make room for Maurkice Pouncey, Jason Worilds and Flozell Adams the Steelers released linebackers Lindsey Witten and Johnny Williams, as well as long-snapper Matt Stewart. [Steelers Depot]

Head coach Mike Tomlin seems to be pleased with the conditioning of his team following the annual run test. Also included is a note that the entire team will be heading to Canton, Ohio on August 7 for Dick LeBeau’s Hall of Fame induction. I really do believe LeBeau is the most respected person in the entire organization. []

And for your random YouTube of the day: This is a long one, but it’s a good one. The Steelers defeating the San Francisco 49ers during the 1984 season in what proved to be the Niners only loss of the season.

    “Roethlisberger walked down the hill to practice amid cheers. Not a boo was heard.”
