Former Steelers WR Dominating UFL


PITTSBURGH — Former Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Hakeem Butler is not on an NFL roster right now but he’s making waves in the UFL and could be on his way to a

Butler, who spent training camp with the Steelers last summer and now plays for the St. Louis Battlehawks, currently leads the UFL in receiving yards with 618, ranks third in receptions with 43 and second in touchdowns with 5. Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt has him as the frontrunner for 2024 Offensive Player of the Year.

Butler arrived at Steelers training camp as an intriguing prospect. His 6’5 frame stood out against the other recievers but in between his handful of circus catches, Butler didn’t produce much on the field.

But he does now have some extensive NFL experience under his belt. Butler’s enjoyed stints with the Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles and the Steelers, plus two Canadian teams and a pair of UFL/XFL teams.

Butler is finally hitting his stride with the Battlehawks and could be leveling up out of the UFL soon enough as offseason workouts progress in the NFL.

Grenades found at checkpoint at Pittsburgh International Airport


PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – As we’ve officially reached the summer solstice, that means travel will begin to pick up with vacations and other plans, but once again the Transportation Security Administration is reminding travelers what they can and cannot travel with. 

For two travelers on Wednesday, they found out that grenades are not allowed on planes. 

According to Lisa Farbstein, the TSA Northeast spokesperson on X (Formerly Twitter), an inert grenade and a smoke grenade were both intercepted at the checkpoint at Pittsburgh International Airport. 

“Most people plan on having a blast on their trip, but this guy wasn’t thinking along those lines when [TSA] officers intercepted this grenade at [Pittsburgh International Airport] checkpoint yesterday,” Farbstein posted to X. “Fortunately, it was inert, however grenades, live or inert, are not allowed on planes.”

Not much later, TSA agents intercepted a smoke grenade at the checkpoint. 

“Holy smokes,” Farbstein posted on social media. “The [TSA] team at [Pittsburgh International Airport] intercepted this smoke grenade in a traveler’s carry-on bag yesterday. Had it been triggered, thick yellow smoke would have been everywhere. Yellow is just not a good look. And besides, you know that there’s no smoking on a plane!”

The grenade interceptions come as TSA has confiscated 15 loaded guns at Pittsburgh International Airport as of May 21.

It also comes after a record-setting year both locally and nationally in 2023 when officers intercepted 44 guns in Pittsburgh and 6,737 nationwide. 

Travelers can always consult the TSA website on how to properly store items that they are not permitted to have in their carry-on bags.
