Starting Nod Not Changing Steelers’ Special Teams Roles

It was assumed we wouldn’t be seeing much of Vince Williams on special teams this year. You could assume the same about T.J. Watt, especially if you knew that he was going to play practically every snap on defense. Or even Anthony Chickillo once he got the nod for an injured Bud Dupree. In reality, that wasn’t the case. While the Pittsburgh Steelers may have tweaked their units to reflect those roles, it’s clear they still want their special teams stalwarts to keep seeing time there.

The snap count numbers alone tell that story.
