The NFL has its blind dates and the NFL has a blind date game.
We’ve covered the game before, but we thought we’d give it a shot again with this week’s NFL players.
This week’s Blind Date Players: Ryan Shazier, RB, Pittsburgh SteelersThe Steelers are in full rebuild mode, but Shaziers blind date with a woman from out of town and their first date is going to be a lot more memorable than the rest of the Steelers offense.
Shazs date is slated to take place Thursday, but his teammates are already starting to think he’s a little too young for this game.
Shazzers parents live in Pittsburgh, and Shazers mom has been living in Houston for the last few months.
That makes for a very strange and interesting night.
We’ll leave it to you to decide whether Shazies date is the real deal or not.
Ryan Shazziers date with the woman he is dating is a great start.
Let’s go Shaz, you’re one of the best players in the NFL!
— The MMQB’s Michael RothsteinThe Steelers have been busy this offseason, signing two former first-round picks, drafting a tight end and acquiring a second-round pick in the 2018 draft.
That is, until Shaz was a free agent this offseason.
He has spent the past few months waiting on a team to offer him a new deal and he’s hoping for the best.
He wants to be with his wife and family.
Shabbiest date with his family yet!
This is a very odd night for the Steelers.
It’s been a long time since Shaz has been a Steelers fan.
His parents live out of state, his mother is a waitress and his dad is a bartender.
Shzier was always going to have to wait until he could move back to Pittsburgh to be his best friend.
But his wife’s birthday is coming up and his mom’s mom is pregnant with his first child.
So, Shaz wants to get to know his new friends as soon as possible.
He’s not sure what kind of crazy date his parents have planned for him, but he does know that his date with her will probably be a little more interesting than the others.
It’ll be a new chapter in Shaz’s life.
This is the type of night Shaz should be having with his new family.
Ryan shazier blind date has a perfect match in his wife.
— Mike ReissThe Steelers still haven’t finalized Shaziere contract extension.
They’re going to try to sign him to a longer deal before the season ends, but they’re also not 100 percent certain if they’ll even be able to.
They’ve been trying to sign Shaz for some time now and his situation is so fluid that they’re going all-in on him right now.
The Steelers could use a quarterback to run the offense and they desperately need one right now with Shaz back on the field.
The fact that Shaz is a rookie could open the door for Pittsburgh to sign an older quarterback and give him some experience in the pocket.
Shaylon Lewis is the top option at the position and Shays experience could open up the Steelers passing game.
With Shaz now in the picture, the Steelers will have to decide which quarterback to start over Shaz.
Lewis is also coming off of a big-time season, but the Steelers need a reliable signal-caller right now, especially with Shiz back.
Shiz is one of those players who has been around forever, but if he can stay healthy and keep up with Shuzier, the rest should come easily for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
