Pittsburgh Steelers Defensive Coordinator Dick LeBeau doesn’t plan to retire this offseason, despite the fact he’ll be 76 years-old at the start of the 2013 NFL season, and has stated he wants to return to Pittsburgh next year, but that will be up to head coach Mike Tomlin. It’s hard to not see LeBeau on the Steelers’ sidelines next year.
Steelers Nose tackle Casey Hampton has already said he wants to play two more years, though he will be 35 years old this spring.
ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi is reporting that there’s a zero percent chance that Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson (ankle) plays this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The third-overall pick of the 2012 draft will finish his rookie year with 950 yards and 11 touchdowns on 267 carries (3.6 YPC), while also adding 51 catches for 367 yards and a TD.
Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed is focused on finishing the season off and preparing for the playoffs, and not the fact that he’ll be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He still looks like he has a few years left in the tank, though with 11 seasons under his belt, if the Ravens make an improbable Super Bowl run, this may be the last we see of Ed Reed.
