Notre Dame Fighting Irish defensive end Stephon Tuitt has declared he will be back for his senior season.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish defensive end Stephon Tuitt will be back for his senior year.

This was what Tuitt himself told The Observer, the university's official student newspaper, on Wednesday. He said,"I'm coming back next year. I'm a junior. I still have on year." 

This quells any potentinal rumor about Tuitt entering the 2014 NFL Draft in spite of his mother, Tamara Bartlett, already on the lookout for her son's pro agent. 

According to Pete Sampson of IrishIllustrated.com, the star defensive lineman is seen to be a first-round draft pick next year. Sampson cites ESPN's Mel Kiper, Jr., who says Tuitt is the second-best defensive end in the country behind the South Carolina Gamecocks' highly-touted Jadeveon Clowney. 

In terms of the bigger picture, Tuitt ranks 14th overall among the potential 2014 NFL Draft aspirants listed by Scouts.com. Kiper has Tuitt 11th on his draft board. 

His 12 sacks in the Irish's undefeated 2012 season, just 1.5 shy of the school record being held by the New York Giants' Justin Tuck, garnered national attention. 

A starter in 19 consecutive games for Notre Dame, Tuitt, who had offseason sports hernia surgery, currently has 18 tackles and three sacks this year.

Pittsburgh Steelers Struggling to Find Answers with Nickel Defense

Sep 1 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

An area of emphasis for the Pittsburgh Steelers this preseason has been its personnel groupings, in particular in their nickel set. This is always a problem when a team runs a base 3-4 defense as the Steelers do. The intent of the 3-4 defense is to provide flexibility within the defensive schemes and allow players to be successful in multiple roles. On paper and in theory this is ideal. However, in the second half of the 2013 season, and thu ...
