Sweed Impresses in Mini Camp
If I had to pick one player I was most impressed with (outside of the obvious), I would have to say second-year receiver Limas Sweed. Everyone is aware of his struggles last season. But during this three-day camp, Sweed received a lot of reps and made a lot of plays. The 2008 second-round pick will be relied upon this season and it looks like he’s making significant strides.

Parker Wants to Remain with Steelers
Willie Parker enters the last year of his contract in the 2009 season. Did he consider a hold out?
“That will take care of itself,” he said of his contract situation. “The Steelers gave me a chance and I am proud and happy to be a Steeler. That’s all I can say about that. Whatever happens, happens. As of right now, I am just getting ready for this season and have to make the best of it.”
