5 Steelers that may not fit the new direction of the team
The Steelers are under new management and that change could make new directions a priority in the near future.
The Steelers are starting a new era for the team as Mike Tomlin will now have a new relationship at the team’s general manager spot. Kevin Colbert has retired from the league after what seems to be a Hall of Fame worthy career at the helm of the black and gold for over two decades. Now a new person will have big shoes to fill as the club looks to stay competitive and chase Lombardi’s for many years to come.
Omar Khan is now the General manager for Pittsburgh after many years learning behind Colbert. Some were shocked by this hiring, but he was the most capable and knew what the black and gold represented. He will now have his regime under a microscope as he looks to become a worthy successor of Colbert’s era.
It will be a tough task, but things seem to be optimistic about the newly appointed boss in the front office. He has made some new hires and surrounded himself with some knowledgeable folks. Change is a good thing sometimes, but it leads to new outlooks for a franchise and those employed within.
Kendrick Green could become expendable for the Steelers
Kendrick Green is only entering his second year after being drafted by the Steelers in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft. He started at center, which was a bold choice since he did not play that position often in college. He struggled throughout his rookie year, and many have counted him out already for the competition at starting guard or center.
Wither he starts at either spot will ultimately come down to the coaches. Khan will have the say when it comes to the potential future with Green. Both he and coach Tomlin will have to reassess this players position on the team and if it is time to cut ties with him and move on after 2022.
