FB/TE Will Johnson Struggling To Get On The Field

One of the big story lines during spring practices and training camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers, at least to me, was the coaching staff’s decision to use fullback Will Johnson as a tight end, having him attend tight end meetings and work with the group during practice.

Steelers Offense Has Been Going To 11 A Lot So Far In 2014

Despite having three tight ends and one fullback on the roster, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley can’t be accused of using too many two tight end sets or sets that include a fullback being lined up in the backfield so far through the first two games of the 2014 season.

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: DHB And Justin Brown Blocking

Under normal circumstances, it’s probably pretty unlikely that the Pittsburgh Steelers would carry six wide receivers on their 53-man roster.
