Distraction for Steelers
By Scott Allen
Steelers tight end Jonathan Dekker was arrested early Saturday morning in Virgina after police responded to a complaint at 3:30am and then Dekker tried to flee. He was charged with obstruction of justice and is scheduled for a February 2nd hearing, the day after the Super Bowl.
Dekker has been on injured reserve since August, so he wasn’t on the active roster. However, this is the type of distraction I’m sure the Steelers don’t want prior to leaving for Tampa. Now is the time to start making your marks for each team and the advantages one might have over the other. You’ve got to look for anything to gain an advantage. Although this shouldn’t be a huge distraction, it is one nonetheless. Let’s hope the Cards can limit theirs. First advantage – Cardinals.
