Now for the last cornerback on the list: Curtis Brown.
In his first two seasons he has not shown anything more than being a good special teams player. This has the possibility of being a make-or-break camp for the third year corner.
I’m not saying I definitely see him being cut because I don’t. In fact, I would be surprised and disappointed if he was. That would mean he really showed no development and no potential for growth with the team.
Part of Brown's problem is the competition between him and Josh Victorian, Terry Hawthorne, DeMarcus Van Dyke and Isaiah Green.
With injuries to Hawthorne and Van Dyke there was the chance that Brown could come out strong and solidify his standing with the team early. Unfortunately, Brown has apparently gone down with an ankle injury as he was seen on crutches according to James Wexell of Steelers Digest via Twitter.
It is still early on in camp and if the injury is minor this will all be a moot point. But if it lingers, at least this was an opportunity to get extra reps in camp.
