Training camp brings many out of the woodwork of the offseason as fans get excited about football again. The Steelers will be going back to Latrobe, PA again after a couple of years away due to the Covid pandemic. That is where so much history of this franchise has occurred as players cut their teeth and create NFL futures for themselves.
There seems to be a handful of players that seem to be overstaying their welcome with the club when the pre-season rolls around each year. That trend seems like it could continue this time around, which could lead to these veterans having their job security up in the air. It is time for them to finally take a step forward in training camp and beyond, or they could be part of the final cuts to get down to the final 53-man roster.
A former starter at nose tackle could be cut before the pre-season concludes
One name to keep a close eye on in camp is Montravius Adams. He has been the starter at the nose tackle role for the Steelers since he got here for the most part. He started off his career in the black and gold on a promising note. That led to high expectations last season, but he was not able to live up to those lofty goals.
Adams now has a bunch of competition on the roster that could push him out the door. His job is going to be one he has to win, and it seems less likely that he retains the starting nose tackle role by the day. He will need to beat out Keeanu Benton and Breiden Fehoko to have a serious shot at sticking around in Pittsburgh.
