The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to have some challenging choices to make during this season’s training camp. Even though they return 10 starters on offense and eight on defense, the depth on this lineup will be vital.
The depth of this team was tested heavily in 2013, so it might be time for Pittsburgh to roll the dice a little when it comes to those final precious roster spots. Obviously, if you are going to go with some elite athletes who might not be as football-ready, depth will suffer. It’s a calculated risk.
Let’s look at five dark-horse candidates who could make this team’s final roster. All are interesting prospects with long odds. The risk/reward for giving up roster spots on these guys is high, but if you are a team that is ready to win, why not give it a shot?
