Steelers’ special teams likely to see changes

It’s quite often the one area of football that is most often overlooked by the casual fan and sometimes even the most ardent fan. I’m speaking of special teams of course or as many football people refer to it as, “the third phase.” It is many times the part of the game that can ultimately be the biggest. Accurate punters can dictate field position while return men can flip the field in their team’s favor in the blink of an eye.
You can pretty much bank on the Pittsburgh Steelers looking significantly different on Special Teams in two or three key areas in 2012. It’s already been made clear that Antonio Brown will focus more on being a number two receiver and will be used less in the return game. This means Emmanuel Sanders will pick up the lion’s share of those duties.

GM Kevin Colbert Represented Steelers Wednesday At Alabama Pro Day

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was present for the 2012 University of Alabama pro day Wednesday as were reps for the other 31 teams in the league. While several draft worthy players worked out for all in attendance, one could easily speculate that Colbert was there to mostly watch linebacker Dont'a Hightower, who reportedly only went through a few of the drills and focused more on the position workouts.
