CBS Sports’ Rang Says Steelers Got A Second Round Steal

For the last several seasons, it was becoming increasingly more apparent that a retooling of Pittsburgh’s cornerback department was needed.

Will Johnson An Unsung Hero For High-Powered Steelers Offense

In an offense loaded with studs like All-Pros Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell and led by the NFL’s passing yards leader in franchise cornerstone Ben Roethlisberger, there is one man in the starting lineup that is about as obscure as you’ll find.
