Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers are handcuffed by the salary cap, they have to find a way to re-sign Keenan Lewis, who had a breakout season as a starting cornerback in 2012.

Second-year cornerback Cortez Allen showed in the final two weeks of 2012 that he could push for a starting job in 2013.
Allen intercepted two passes and forced three fumbles. So in two games he was in on 25 percent of the Steelers’ 20 takeaways in 2012.
