Now that training camp is about to get underway, you might be thinking about adding a new Pittsburgh Steelers jersey to your collection for the 2014 season. Here are four suggestions for you to consider.
|Trendy And Safe – Buying the jersey of a Steelers first-round draft pick is usually safe as they should be around for at least five years. This year, linebacker Ryan Shazier was the Steelers first round selection and on top of that, it looks like he will even open the season as a starter. That’s a bonus for fans who wear the jersey of a rookie. Shazier also appears to be a high character kid and mature for his age. I don’t think that you can go wrong by buying his jersey.|
|Late To The Party – If you still don’t own a David DeCastro jersey, now is the time to beat the second rush. Offensive linemen jerseys aren’t usually that popular with fans, but DeCastro should be a household name following the 2014 season. Barring an injury, the Steelers former first-round draft pick has a great chance at being named All-Pro following his third season. If you are worried about longevity, there’s no reason to think that DeCastro won’t be signed to an extension when his rookie contract finally expires. No. 66 is one of the safest jersey buys that you can make this season, in my opinion.|
|For The Future – Rookie second-round draft pick Stephon Tuitt should see the field some during his rookie season with an eye on becoming a starter at some point in 2015. It took fellow defensive end Cameron Heyward a little while to become the player that he currently is and if you bought his jersey a few years ago, you are now reaping the rewards. Tuitt just turned 21 and there’s no reason to think that he won’t be a permanent fixture in Pittsburgh for several years to come. Like Shazier, Tuitt appears to very mature for his age, so I don’t believe that you will need to worry about any character issues with him.|
|Roll Of The Dice – If you feel like taking a little bit of a risk, I would suggest adding a Martavis Bryant jersey to your collection. While Bryant isn’t expected to play much during his rookie season, the prospects for considerable playing time beyond that look good. While Bryant is currently extremely raw, he has tremendous upside because of his size and speed. Keep in mind that Bryant could be gone after his rookie contract is up and there’s also no guarantee that he won’t switch from No. 10 at some point.|
