What Clint Hurdle said: “(Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin’s) got his eye on one guy every time he comes in. He also encourages them, ‘Hey, y’all want to play a little football, give me a little wink on the way out.’ I tell him, ‘There’s no eligibility here. Move on.’ ... I made sure we had a head count after they left.”
