Butler Looking For Big Mouths On Defense, Thinks Edmunds Can Be One

Communication, communication, communication. If there has been a theme to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offseason so far on the defensive side of the ball, then it would have to be their efforts to try to address communication issues that really dogged the unit last season, particularly late in the year following the injury to mack linebacker Ryan Shazier, who set the defense.

With Shazier already ruled out for the season, the front office went out in free agency to find another mack linebacker who has experience calling the defense. They came out with Jon Bostic, who started 14 of 14 games for the Indianapolis Colts last season and hardly came off the field.
