• Steelers’ Pouncey wants to ‘move off’ Aaron Hernandez discussion

    "I know I took a lot of heat for it and I probably should have," Pouncey said. While Tomlin declined to get into details about the discussion, Pouncey left little doubt that he will be focused on becoming the unquestioned leader on one of the NFL's youngest offensive lines and not any push to clear Hernandez's name. This approach came after a debate that had multiple people within the organization saying Pouncey should apologize for the cap that asked for the release of jailed and accused murder Aaron Heranandez, a former roommate of the Pouncey twins at the University of Florida. Maurkice Pouncey, wearing no hat this time, proclaimed a new message after his arrival at Saint Vincent College. Hernandez is in jail in Massachusetts facing a murder charge in the death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. He has pleaded not guilty. Pittsburgh finished in the bottom 10 in the league in rushing yards, yards per carry and rushing touchdowns last season while missing the playoffs for the second time since Tomlin took over in 2007.
