A new offensive coordinator? An aging defense? No wonder the Pittsburgh Steelers special teams has been a virtual non-topic this offseason. That does not make it any less important.

Just as with the offense and defense, the Steelers' special teams will have competition during training camp and several questions that need answers.

The good news is that since Al Everest took over following the 2009 season, the Steelers' special teams have developed into a good unit with a strong return game and coverage units.

There will be a different feel for 2012 as Antonio Brown will shift his focus to the receiver position leaving an opening in the kick and punt return game.

Daniel Sepulveda will also not be in  camp as he had one knee injury too many and was not re-signed by Pittsburgh.

There will be plenty to watch come training camp as roster battles will be held for the starting punter and return game as well as rookies being broken into the coverage units.

Here's what to look when watching special teams come training camp.
