"Since Polamalu left, our DBs ... very, very skeptical."

Troy retired after the 2014 season. The Steelers have since retired his #43 jersey.

Breaking News

1103-leveon-bell-instagram-02The Bengals ain't gonna like this one ... 

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell -- who's also a rapper -- just dropped a NEW TRACK taking aim at Cincinnati ... just 7 weeks before they're set to do battle on the field. 

The song is "Rapping Athlete" -- in which Bell spits the lyrics: 

"All these haters @ me ... 
You need to check my rap sheet ... 
You better take the backseat like you play in Cincinnati."

There's a ton of bad blood between the Steelers and the Bengals -- in fact, it was Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict who ended Bell's season last year during a Week 8 matchup.

As far as the rivalry goes, the Steelers have won 6 out of the last 7 matchups ... so, advantage Le'Veon. 

By the way, he also name drops Johnny Manziel ... saying he's balling the ex-QB -- but back when he was in college!

NFL's Robert Golden Sues Wedding Planner You Sent My Guest To The Hospital!!

10/16/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1014-robert-golden-GETTY-01Pittsburgh Steelers safety Robert Golden is going after the company he hired to plan his wedding, 'cause he says they wrecked his big day ... and were even responsible for sending a guest to the hospital.

According to court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Golden says he hired Genesis Master of Events last year to help him and his fiancee plan his July 2nd nuptials in Fresno, CA.

Golden says it was 102 degrees on the day of their wedding -- and the company failed to tell them that the AC was broken inside their reception venue, The Fresno Ballroom.

In the docs, Golden says at least 60 of their guests left early 'cause of the heat. He also claims his wife had to change out of her wedding dress early ... and the ice sculpture and cake "were melted and unusable."

The NFLer says it was so hot several guests had to receive IVs the next day ... and one guest was admitted to the hospital for severe dehydration. 

To top it all off -- Golden says the company won't hand over their wedding pictures, videos or gifts that guests delivered to their office before and after the wedding.

Golden is suing Genesis Master of Events for an unspecified amount.

We reached out to GMOF for comment -- so far, no word back.

Plus, he also hooked up the guys with toiletry bags and elevation masks (training first!) ... and we're told it was all because he just wanted to show the guys he appreciates 'em.

Verne Troyer New Good Luck Charm Hanging with Antonio Brown!

Exclusive Details

1003_verne_troyer_steelers_fans_game_photos_launchVerne Troyer lived out a lifelong dream as a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan ... meeting all the players after watching them whoop-up on the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field.

Verne's loved the Steelers since the '70s but never got to a game, so superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown made it happen. We're told Verne watched football with AB all day at his house, then scored pregame sideline passes.

He headed to Brown's suite to watch the Sunday night matchup -- a dominating 43-14 Steelers victory -- and hung out with the team afterward. Check out the pics ... he even met Bob Costas (guess who's taller).

Antonio says Verne brought him good luck -- he scored 2 TDs -- so there's a good chance he'll be back later this season. Keep your Terrible Towel handy, Verne!

Thanks @ab for the ball! #herewego #steelersnation @steelers

Antonio Brown Gets 'Arnold Palmer Tribute' Cleats ... Hail to 'The King'

9/30/2016 12:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0930-Antonio-Brown-Arnold-Palmer-cleats-tmz-sportsFresh off the heels of a cleat controversy, Antonio Brown just had ANOTHER sick pair of kicks custom made for his next game ... a tribute to golf legend Arnold Palmer

We spoke with Brown who tells us he went to his cleat guy, Corey Pane, and asked for something that would show his respect to "The King." 

The results speak for themselves. 

Remember, Brown got into some trouble with the NFL officials last week for custom blue cleats that had images of his kids painted on them. He was told to change them at halftime or else ... in part due to the colors not matching the Steelers uniform. 

These new cleats happen to be in Steelers colors -- so hopefully he'll avoid any sort of drama ... especially since they're super dope.
