The tension in Pittsburgh is mounting after having their Super Bowl hopes dashed by the Packers and Broncos in consecutive seasons. To remain the NFL's leader in Super Bowl victories, the Steelers need to replace some pieces that aren't helping them reach their ultimate goal.
The pressure of staying on top of the NFL is a lot to handle, and saying goodbye to veteran players is a tough but necessary part of the process.
The Steelers are well aware of their identity, they win by running the ball, controlling the clock and stopping the run.
Bringing fresh faces into the system can rejuvenate the team and bring them back to a championship level.
