The 2015 Pittsburgh Steelers have their sights set on the Super Bowl after returning to the top of the AFC North mountain last season. Can they bring another title home to the Steel City? Here are three things to watch in training camp:
1) What do we make of Le'Veon Bell's situation?
Bell still isn't fully healed from the right knee injury that ended his 2014 season prematurely, and there's also the case of the three-game suspension for his August 2014 arrest for driving under the influence of marijuana. Most players would crumble and fall out of rhythm will such an off-field load on their shoulders. Can Bell prove himself the exception and not the rule?
2) Who will be the No. 2 cornerback?
William Gay heads into the summer as the team's unquestioned #1 corner, but the #2 spot is as wide open as any other spot on the roster at this point. Cortez Allen struggled in 2014, but his $5 million price tag for 2015 likely means he'll get every opportunity to win the job. Antwan Blake impressed in spurts last year, and Senquez Golson and Doran Grant are two draft-class options who could command a move up the depth chart, but there's still no clarity to be had.
3) Can Pittsburgh's rookies produce?
Kentucky pass rusher Bud Dupree headlined a defensive haul for the Steelers in the 2015 NFL Draft, joining corners Senquez Golson (Ole Miss) and Doran Grant (Ohio State) to form one of the best rookie defensive trios of this year's class. All three will be relied on to play significant snaps right away, and the Steelers are counting on them to be successful right away.Back to the Pittsburgh Steelers Newsfeed
