Pittsburgh Steelers and Shaun Suisham fans might be wondering where the ace athlete is. Google can't even find anything on him from this year (2017). So ... What's up with him?!
Why So Legendary?
Shaun Suisham was born on the 29th of December, 1981 (Presently aged 35). He is a Canadian born American football placekicker.
Shaun Suisham has played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, St. Louis Rams, Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys.
The Pittsburgh Steelers is the prominent team on that list that Suisham really shot to the limelight at.
The achievements of this ace athlete include making a Pittsburgh Steelers record in 2013. He was able to nail an amazing 93.8% conversion mark by connecting 30 out of 32 attempts at field goals
That total ranks as the third highest in Pittsburgh Steelers history.
Take a look at a few years back in 2010 when Suisham kicked four 40+ yard field goals against Buffalo. In NFL history, no other football player has been able to rival that record.
Wait for it … wait for it … Suisham pulled that off TWICE!
His Saddest and Last Episode At The Pittsburgh Steelers
Well, he did so much with the Steelers. He had a contract that was extended even through the 2018 season, but things just did not go smoothly at all.
Suisham made it known to NFL reporters on the 9th of August, 2015 that his anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee may have been torn.
He underwent an MRI the following day which indicated that his fears were true. That made him inactive in Professional Football for the whole of the 2015 season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers had to release him on the 24th of June the following year, after a failed physical.
What's Up With Him?
Look up Shaun Suisham on Google and you'll find no news on him for this year. Where is he? What's his next move? Is he ever going to make it back into Pro American Football? Is this a silent retirement? This actually looks like retirement.
