3. Steelers could target Landon Collins

Another hybrid strong safety cut from the same cloth as Keanu Neal is Landon Collins. The former 33rd overall pick by the New York Giants earned All-Pro honors back in 2018 and was third in line for the defensive player of the year award after a five-interception season.

Despite earning three straight Pro Bowls from 2016 to 2018, Collins hasn't been the same player in recent years. This no doubt has to tod with suffering a few substantial injuries that allowed him to appear in just 26 games since the end f the 2019 season.

Still, after just turning 29 years old, Collins should have some juice left in the tank. At 6'0'' and 222 pounds Collins is a true box safety who can do a lot of work in nickel and dime. What Kazee lacks in size and stopping power, Collins makes up for.

Collins certainly isn't guaranteed to be an upgrade over Terrell Edmunds, but it would give them a strong safety who can fill a similar role. Because of the injuries in recent years, the Steelers could probably sign him on a cheap deal.
