The Steelers need to add more leadership, especially on offense

A few bad eggs can ruin a whole batch if they are spoiled enough. If the Steelers are unable to add more leaders or develop some, then this team will continue to have problems from inside the locker room trickle onto the field. Defense doesn't have this issue for the most part as guys like Cam Heyward, T.J. Watt, and Minkah Fitzpatrick are there.

The main concern of leadership will remain on the offensive side of the ball. Kenny Pickett seems like he is trying his best to get into that role, but he has not produced enough to have his teammates buy-in. It seems like no matter who tries and steps up always fall flat onto their face. There are only individuals that are grouped rather than a team trying to accomplish something with one another.

Najee Harris is another option to be a potential leader, but he has seemingly punted on that option. Tomlin pushed for him to be in that role and it does not seem like a match for him. Another guy who has not produced enough for his teammates to buy in anyway. Perhaps getting someone who is proven this offseason to become a leader is the best option.

Quarterback seems like the main concern as that position needs to have some sort of leadership on a team. Someone like Kirk Cousins would be great in that role with all of his experience and the type of personality he brings. One thing is for sure, what the Steelers are doing right now is not working and they need another solution this offseason.
