Certain Steelers players better bring their A-games to training camp this year if they want to secure their spots on the 2013 squad.
Very few Steelers are guaranteed anything come next season, as a dismal 8-8 record in 2012 means that a lot of cogs in the machine clearly need to be either spruced up or completely replaced.
Only guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and LaMarr Woodley can reasonably expect to make Pittsburgh’s 2013 roster with their starting jobs intact without much effort. As for all of the other players on the roster, not so much.
Some guys are on the roster bubble because they had a subpar 2012. Others are aging and may be dropped in favor of young upstarts. And for some, no matter how talented they are, there just might not be enough room on the roster for them.
These guys better take training camp seriously. If they do not, they might be out of a job pretty soon.
