  • National Football League eyes Steelers for deflated balls

The Steelers' most recent Super Bowl victory is owed to such a catch by Santonio Holmes, arguably one of the great plays in National Football League history.

Football returned far and wide Thursday night with a slate of 12 NFL preseason games, and with them seemingly a second installment of one of the league's most weird controversies: Deflategate.

Eskin joined the 94WIP Morning Show on Friday.

Questions about an underinflated football flared among fans online after the preseason opener when a sideline radio reporter tweeted that he saw a ball looking "VERY deflated" after an incompletion thrown by Pittsburgh rookie Mason Rudolph.

"I was 3 yards away from it", Eskin said of the deflated football, which had landed out of bounds. It was so deflated. "The next thing I knew, the NFL was checking the football".

"All footballs were in compliance with NFL rules following the pregame inspection process and all proper procedures were followed", league spokesman Michael Signora told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

In 2016, the Giants asked the NFL to review two Steelers footballs that they believed were below the minimum pressure, but the NFL found no wrongdoing.
