..."He's not going to be back," Jeff Sperbeck said of Haggans, who will be a free agent in March. "He had a good run, won a Super Bowl, enjoyed the people, the fans. He loved being a part of the old Steelers."
Odd choice of words. Is there trouble within the ranks that we've not been hearing about?
That's just agent-speak, an underhanded jab at the team/FO. It wouldn't shock me if it was a total lie, anyway.
At the same time, don't the Steelers have a pretty long-standing tradition of not negotiating contracts during the season? If I'm correct, then lack of contact is no big surprise.
