The Steelers are hosting free agent Nat Berhe, Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com reports.
Berhe, 26, spent his first four seasons with the Giants after they made the safety a fifth-round draft choice in 2014.
He played 15 games last season, making two tackles and a sack. In his career, he has played 38 games with two starts, making 35 tackles, a sack and forcing a fumble.
Berhe, though, would help on special teams, and the Steelers have tried to add to that unit this offseason. Pittsburgh had interest in Matthew Slater and Michael Thomas.
This is an unusually favorable week of hitting matchups for the San Diego Padres, thanks in large part to their beginning it with three games at Colorado’s Coors Field. Add a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants’ bruised and battered pitching staff, and this is a good week to chance it with some of their widely available hitters: Jose Pirela (available in more than 90 percent of ESPN leagues) is routinely batting in the upper third of the lineup; Hunter Renfroe (available in roughly 85 percent) should see regular playing time in Wil Myers’ (DL, arm) absence this week, while batting fourth or fifth; and Christian Villanueva (roughly 95 percent) has been stealing time from Chase Headley at third base. It’s also a likely week for leadoff man Manuel Margot to get his season rolling.
Hall has played 11 seasons, including nine with the Bengals after they made him the 18th overall choice. He has played 142 games with 108 starts and has made 27 interceptions and 115 pass breakups.
Highlighted by conversations with TSN’s Jason Brough and “The Keeper of the Cup” Howie Borrow, Greg Wyshynski and Emily Kaplan debate the draft lottery situation as well as barrel down the last days of the playoff race, including injuries of note and more. Listen »
Wyshynski: I’ve seen a few of my colleagues here proclaim a lack of trust in Kinkaid, to which I’d ask whether they considered the alternative: Schneider has been a slice of Swiss cheese gently laid atop a sieve for the past two months. Like Philipp Grubauer of the Washington Capitals, should Schneider see action, we just don’t know what we’ll see from him. We do know this: Sergei Bobrovsky, for all his regular-season mastery, has an .887 save percentage and a 3.63 goals-against average in 18 appearances for the Columbus Blue Jackets this season. He has made 14 starts in the playoffs; three of them fell under the parameters of what defines a quality start. I love Bob — just a little less so in the postseason.
