It is hard to imagine that the NFL regular season is less than 100 days away. Even as it’s been a quiet offseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the time is just flying by. Right now, Pittsburgh is smack dab in the middle of its second dose of OTAs, and mandatory training camp is just around the corner.
Last year was a season to forget for Steelers’ fans. A playoff spot was in their grasp, and Pittsburgh saw it snatched away from them in the final week of the regular season. This meant a second consecutive 8-8 season with no playoffs was the best Pittsburgh could get.
Nevertheless, as training camp approaches, things are promising. Pieces, new and old, are coming into place, and the face of this team is becoming clearer. Here are six big takeaways about the Steelers at this point in the offseason.
