The Steelers have had some players overstay their welcome in recent years. Here are four players who have nothing more to offer this team in 2020.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have plenty of things they have to worry about this offseason. How are they going to properly evaluate players without Pro Days, in-house visits, or proper medical exams? One thing they should not have to worry about, however, is a handful of veterans already under contract on their roster.

There are four players on the roster that, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why they are still with the team. Here are the guys who have no business suiting up for another season with the Steelers.

Daniel McCullers

Big Dan McCullers was a terrific story coming out of college. The soft-spoken defensive tackle struggled to keep his weight under control, but he defied the odds – lasting 6 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

However, that’s likely a few years too many. McCullers does not offer much to this team. Listed at 6’7” and 352 pounds, McCullers is a mammoth of a man in the middle of Pittsburgh’s defense. Unfortunately, he only comes in on obvious running situations or goalline packages.

McCullers has played no more than 17 percent of defensive snaps in a season, and in the past two years, he has played 11 percent and 12 percent of defensive snaps, respectively.

The other issue with McCullers is that he is limited to being a down lineman on special teams in field goal situations. He lacks the mobility to play anywhere else. Because of this, he’s never been able to play more than 17 percent of special teams snaps in a single season.

McCullers is a guy we talk about as being on the roster bubble every single year since entering the league. Perhaps it’s finally time to move on from him in 2020.
