A Hidden Gem In Anthony Coyle

Having a nasty disposition has served offensive lineman Anthony Coyle well throughout his football career.

In high school, Coyle was the Sal Somma Award winner as Staten Island’s top lineman. During his collegiate years at Fordham, Coyle was a two-time First Team All-Patriot League and First Team All-ECAC selection. In 2016 and 2017, Coyle was given the Lansing Trophy as the school's top lineman, and allowed only seven sacks in four years.

His physical approach to the game made him a desirable enough prospect to be signed as an undrafted free agent to the Houston Texans in 2018. His football career has included stops with the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons, as well as time with the New York Guardians of the defunct XFL.

Since being signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers in April 2020, Coyle has been waived, brought back, then elevated to the active roster. After signing a reserves/futures contract with the team in January, Coyle is in the right setting to make an impression on a team looking to rebuild their offensive line this offseason. As for his 'nasty disposition', if it eventually leads to a spot on the active roster, no one should be surprised.
