Steelers give nod to Lake

Courtesy of

Ed Bouchette from the PPG reports this afternoon that the Steelers have hired 5 time Pro Bowler Carnell Lake as their next secondary coach.

What will be the next step for the secondary? Will Colbert and Co. draft a rookie CB for Lake to groom? How does Lake’s hiring impact the way the secondary plays? Lake was one of the harder hitting safeties during his time – hit like Troy but minus the crazy. With the league focusing on keeping players ‘safe,’ is this Tomlin’s way of telling the league, ‘We aren’t changing the way this team plays football.’?
