With training camp right around the corner, it is interesting to think about some of the position battles the Pittsburgh Steelers will have this year. Clearly some players won’t have to battle for the starting job, Big Ben, Antonio Brown, Maurkice Pouncey, Lawrence Timmons, Troy Polamalu, and others are going to be starting week one against the Browns. Other guys like Ike Taylor and Jarvis Jones will most likely be starters despite not having a great 2013 season.
However there are a few positions that are somewhat up for grabs. Maybe not in training camp but if a certain player does not perform early in the year, it’s possible that the coaches will make the change and replace the incumbent starter. I am thinking of three positions at the moment, and all three of the players I’m going to list are going into their second season.
