The Pittsburgh Steelers need to assess their team before free agency. With more questions than any NFL team, they need answers before making additions.
It’s been a long offseason and it’s only February. The Pittsburgh Steelers have made more headlines than both Super Bowl teams, trade rumors, injury updates and the Saints, Rams disastrous fourth quarter. But as free agency inches closer, this team is being forced to make decisions.
Not only do decisions benefit this team, but they help the fans. Reading headline after headline has left the fanbase exhausted, frustrated and looking for answers. No one knows what’s going to happen with trade rumors, transition tags or free agency expectations.
Missing the playoffs doesn’t constitute as easy offseason but no one expected this outcome. Pittsburgh is a mess, granted a mess with potential, but nevertheless a team who needs to figure a lot out before August.
Pittsburgh is going to figure everything out. This team isn’t one to let a bad season turn into multiple poor decisions. Instead, they’re an organization that will turn everything around and change the atmosphere immediately. They’ve already started with the coaching staff. Now, it comes down to the players.
There are two major questions and many more behind them that this team needs to handle before the next phase of this offseason begins. Answers that will define the outlook of the 2019 season for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
