Steelers Secondary Gets Picky To Start Preseason

One of the biggest criticisms of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense over the course of the better part of the 2010s is the fact that they have had difficulty in taking the football away, particularly through the air. It’s been a long time, for example, since any player has intercepted four or more passes in a single season.

With a new-look secondary, a new instructor, and a new philosophy aimed toward giving their defensive backs more opportunities to make plays on the ball, training camp has so far seemed to bear the fruits of this labor, the defense beginning to rack up the interceptions in comparing to previous years.
