Training camp is just around the corner and clubs in the AFC North still have holes on their roster. The group is coming off a disappointing season as a unit, besides the Cincinnati Bengals sticking out as a success. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, and Cleveland Browns all had struggles to different degrees throughout the season.
Things could be different heading into this season as the bottom three teams in the division last year should be able to take a step forward overall. That is going to lead to a bunch of different matchups to result in close games when these four teams play each other. Even though each club has seemingly got better in certain areas, there have also been certain areas that have popped up as weaknesses over the offseason.
The Steelers have the most improved team across the AFC North division
Pittsburgh was not able to make the playoffs last year and finished third in the AFC North divisional standings. There are plenty of reasons for the black and gold to believe that the future will be bright and successful. After a promising conclusion to the 2022 campaign, the organization was able to have one of the strongest offseasons across the NFL.
The Steelers still have some holes on their roster and some question marks, but not as dire as other clubs in the division. Omar Khan and company were able to strengthen this roster in certain areas and target specific needs that needed to be addressed. One should believe that the Steelers could get back into the playoffs with the types of upgrades they made during the offseason.
