Who Will Rise Among Steelers Safeties?

Perhaps the worst kept secret in Pittsburgh is that the Steelers are going to give third-year man Shamarko Thomas every opportunity to be the replacement to Troy Polamalu.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Is Shamarko Thomas ready for a bigger role?

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense will be highlighted this offseason as the unit suffered one of its worst seasons in recent memory. The Steelers’ secondary may have been the worst part of the aging unit. The secondary constantly gave up splash plays and looked old and slow.
