Sad news today in Steeler Nation.

I always liked Justin (first name easier to spell), because he was one of those guys who was drafted in a round that doesn't exist anymore (11th, in his case). I also thought it was cool that he went to the University of Maine and actually looked like a Black Bear. It is sad, though to see again what happens to a lot of NFL players once their careers end--here, Strzelczyk went kinda nuts, led cops on high speed chases, threw beer bottles out their car windows at 8 in the morning, and had previously had crazy gun issues. It's a little too reminiscent of Mike Webster's sad later years. Come to think of it, is this an NFL thing, or just a Steeler linemen thing?
