Manage episode 364780409 series 1692711
Chris Carter of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, hosts the Locked on Steelers podcast, and is joined by Alan Saunders of SteelersNow.com.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' defense has the assets to be one of the best in the NFL. But can it be top 5 in the league? If T.J. Watt is healthy all season, the added depth to the roster with players like Patrick Peterson, Markus Golden, Joey Porter Jr. and Keeanu Benton could put the Steelers in a position to hang with top offenses like the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.
Markus Golden spoke about his wanting to be with the Steelers and Mike Tomlin for a long time, could he be the right fit as the Steelers' third edge rusher behind T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith?
Patrick Peterson joins a secondary with Minkah Fitzpatrick and Levi Wallace, a group that all were among the top interceptors in the NFL in 2022. Could they lead the NFL in interceptions in 2023?
Also, which newer defenders on the Steelers' roster will make the biggest rise skills to boost the defense?
