6. Pittsburgh Steelers
In a free agent market filled with plenty of big moves, the Pittsburgh Steelers have sat back and stayed quiet. The only notable offseason came by the way of tagging running back Le’Veon Bell for the second straight year. Aside from that Kevin Colbert and his front office haven’t been keen on going after top free agent talent.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The Steelers don’t have a reputation for making a splash in free agency. Their primary focus is rebuilding with young talent through the draft, something not everyone has been able to do over the years. But when draft some of the best players at their respective positions in Big Ben, Antonio Brown and Bell, they have that luxury.
The AFC Divisional round loss is still in the back of Mike Tomlin’s mind as the Steelers look for revenge this season. With the talent they possess, anything less than a Super Bowl berth feels like a disappointment. The Steelers have yet to reap the full benefits of a loaded roster but they’re always going to be a top team as long as the Killer B’s are still around.
Finding Ryan Shazier’s replacement is still a major question mark but the Steelers are still miles ahead of any team in the AFC North this season.
