The Steelers are about to play in their first preseason game of 2022 and the final 53-man roster could end up like this.
The Steelers will be preparing for their first preseason game as it quickly approaches later this week. They will be facing the Seattle Seahawks, who are having a new turn of direction in the organization without their longtime starter at quarterback just like Pittsburgh. These two clubs might share that same concern, but the black and gold are in better shape to handle that adversity.
The first game of their preseason schedule will happen this Saturday at 7 P.M. It should be a fun time as football will be back on TV with many fans clamoring for the sport. These players in the game will have even more desire to go out and prove themselves to make this team.
Right now, there are a lot of positions up for grabs — both on the depth chart and to make this final roster for the regular season. It is going to be interesting to see how some of these players translate the results in practice during training camp and apply it to a game situation. It will help coaches make their decisions going forward.
The Specialists will stay the same for the Steelers
Specialists (3): Chris Boswell, Pressley Harvin III, Christian Kuntz
Chris Boswell just signed an extension with Pittsburgh, and he will not be going anywhere. The only way his future with the club comes into question is if he cannot keep going at his current output or falls off a cliff. He has been one of the best kickers in the NFL over the last handful of years and deserves some respect from fans.
Pressley Harvin III struggled last season, but he will have every chance to get his game back on track. There is little to no competition for him in camp and that should keep this special teams group together for the Steelers. Christian Kuntz did a nice job as the long snapper last season, and he will continue with that deployment in 2022.
