Bigger Role On Defense For Robert Golden Could Impact Special Teams

With the Pittsburgh Steelers’ evident decision not to re-sign Will Allen, and given the fact that rookie second-round pick Sean Davis will likely take time to develop, it is widely, and probably safely, assumed that fifth-year safety Robert Golden will begin the 2016 season as the team’s starting strong safety….
