After an unusually active offseason in signing external free agents and selecting nine players in the NFL Draft, the Steelers’ training-camp roster is mostly set.
Per most of the connected insiders who cover the team full-time (e.g., Ed Bouchette, Jim Wexell, etc.), barring injury the Steelers will likely not be re-signing veteran defensive end Brett Keisel, following their drafting of Notre Dame’s Stephon Tuitt in the 2nd-round.
Keisel could still aid this team, which only has three defensive linemen on its roster with any real game experience. But belatedly going with a youth movement will hopefully pay off in the long-term.
While the Steelers will likely tinker with their roster leading up to training camp, they appear to have only two other positions where a veteran addition would have a good chance to make the team.
