Jaylen Samuels in 2018 Jack Ham Jersey , it would appear that he was not the only one who impressed them at N.C.State. In need of a new running backs coach this offseason, it looks like Pittsburgh will be returning to North Carolina to fill their vacant role. Eddie Faulkner has been a part of the Wolfpack for six seasons and he is officially listed as N.C. State’s tight ends coach, fullbacks coach, special team coordinator and recruitment coordinator on the team’s website. Once a running back himself at the University of Wisconsin, Faulkner has spent 17 years in coaching with Anderson University, Ball State JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey , Northern Illinois and Wisconsin before joining N.C. State in 2013. Having recruited Samuels to college and then coached him for four seasons, Faulkner will obviously have intimate knowledge of his former charge and that is likely to help him with his transition into the NFL. The opportunity to reunite with a player he spoke so highly of in college must have made the job in Pittsburgh especially attractive to him too.Samuels was not the only former player Faulkner saw drafted in 2018 given he also had a hand in the development of Nyheim Hines. Selected in fourth-round by the Indianapolis Colts, Hines had an impressive rookie season as a dual threat in the backfield, recording 314-yards rushing as well as 63 receptions for 425-yards. Faulkner will fill the role made available when the Steelers opted not to renew the contract of James Saxon who was signed by the Arizona Cardinals as their new running backs coach on Monday.Le’Veon Bell fails to report to Steelers by Saturday deadline, costing him over $855K There have already been more than enough deadlines and rumored arrival dates for Le’Veon Bell this offseason and the Pittsburgh Steelers saw yet another pass on Saturday at 4 p.m ET without the desired appearance of their star running back. While it had been clear for a few days that Bell had no intention of suiting up against the Cleveland Browns, some outsiders believed he would still arrive in time to be eligible for his paycheck in Week 1. This is all about the money after all James Conner Jersey , right?However, when it came time for the team buses to leave for Cleveland, Bell was not on board with the Steelers, both physically and metaphorically speaking. By choosing not to arrive at team facilities by the deadline, Bell will forfeit a check worth over $855,000 for Week 1 Artie Burns Jersey , a figure that will immediately revert back to the salary cap as available funds. With both sides now unable to negotiate a long-term deal after that deadline passed way back in July, the only conceivable reason for Bell’s holdout at this stage is self-preservation. Something that is apparently worth more than $850K a week to Bell. Given that is his mindset in Week 1, there is no reason to expect that position to alter in the coming weeks, barring a change of heart oh his part, and it can only be assumed that Bell’s holdout will last until at least Week 10.
