  Posted on: July 16, 2014 By: Kyle Curry   During the 2013 season the Pittsburgh Steelers corners struggled at times.

Steelers’ Focus Should be on Cortez Allen Now

As we all now know, the Steelers have worked out a long-term deal with Maurkice Pouncey. That leaves Ben Roethlisberger, Jason Worilds, and Cortez Allen as guys that could potentially sign new deals before the 2014 season starts.
