Honestly, I don’t really see Curtis Brown, a third-round pick in 2011, being cut this offseason, though I wouldn’t definitely rule it out.
The Steelers’ top three cornerbacks are set on the depth chart with Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen and William Gay. Behind those three, however, there are a ton of questions marks and it starts with Brown.
Brown has developed a little slower than most fans would have liked and the team has never been afraid to cut ties with any player regardless of where he was drafted.
The cornerback position should be one of the more heated position battles in camp with Brown, DeMarcus Van Dyke, Josh Victorian, Isaiah Green and Terry Hawthorne all fighting for roster spots.
At most I would see the team keeping five corners on the roster. At this point I’d give the edge to Brown and Hawthorne. That is just an early prediction, though, and all five of those players will be given a shot to be the depth for the team at the position.
