Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert expects another major roster shakeup this offseason. Citing the team's 8-8 2012 record and salary cap concerns, Colbert said that they are "not married to any player" and that every position will be evaluated.
Colbert also added that these decisions could have come earlier, but there was a sense of complacency based on the Steelers' continued success over the past few seasons. They will not be using the franchise tag this year, not only because of the financial concern of doing so, but also because he doesn't think that the team had "too many franchise players" this year.
Matt Vensel of the Baltimore Sun says that Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco should expect the blitz when he faces off against the New England Patriots defense on Sunday.
