Steel City Underground

I feel like I'm going through major football withdrawal right now. We have roughly a month until the draft, and at least 6 months before any "real" football games (and a little less for some exhibition preseason games).

Baseball is coming soon. I'm a baseball fan. I like the Pittsburgh Pirates, and I also follow the LA Dodgers (I live there, so I kinda have to).

But baseball doesn't ease my pain about not having any NFL games. So, as I scroll through my Twitter feed, I find it interesting to see what NFL players do in the offseason. Some players appear to look at their seasonal job as a privilege, and others do not.

Regardless, the vacations and off-field hobbies of players are fun to look at. Let's see what some of our beloved Steelers are up to, while football season is over.

DeAngelo Williams

RB DeAngelo Williams posted that he is Helsinki, Finland, where it's colder than Pittsburgh! Oh, and he's taking the plunge in ice cold waters too!

But that's not all this family man is doing. Look how much fun he's having in the airport with his kids.

Arthur Moats

The Steelers linebacker had a blast in the Bahamas, then took in the Stadium Series Pens game between the Penguins and the Flyers.

Artie Burns

Antonio Brown

When Antonio Brown isn't busy being "Mr. GQ" and signing big contracts, he's making appearances around town and promoting the "City of Champions".

Le'Veon Bell

Bell is dropping an entire album this offseason, which will be out any day now.

Ben Roethlisberger

What else would you expect from your franchise quarterback than playing ping pong with Pitt RB, and NFL draft prospect, James Connor.

Sammie Coates

Either Sammie loves to cook, wants to supplement his income with an affiliate link, or both! Either way he's posted a few photos of his culinary skills recently.

Roosevelt Nix

Rosy wasn't cold enough in Pittsburgh. Nope! He had to travel abroad to where there was actual snow on the ground, when it was nearly in the 60's for several days back home!

Will Gay had a better idea, going to Panama (where there's no snow to be found).

Ramon Foster

Ramon Foster has been busy, releasing the first episode of his podcast recently.

Anthony Chickillo

Thanks @lowryparkzoo for the great time!

Anthony Chickillo was busy playing with tigers. (Momma tiger looks "friendly" doesn't she?)

Finally, did anyone expect anything different from James Harrison? The same day as his contract signing, he was already in the gym doing workouts such as these.
