Steelers LB Vince Williams could become a key player

The Steelers are loaded at inside linebacker at the moment. Spearheaded by Lawrence Timmons, the rest of the crew is comprised of the supremely talented Ryan Shazier, the perseverance warrior Sean Spence, and the bulldozing Vince Williams. One of them in particular, Williams, has become a fan favorite in the past year. His hard hitting has become reminiscent of the Steelers of old...

Earlier this offseason, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin basically said that the starting jobs across about half of the defense can be deemed as legitimately up for grabs in training camp and the preseason this year.

Pittsburgh Steelers 5 Biggest Draft Mistakes Over the Last 5 Years

Mike Adams View image | gettyimages.com Adams is still with the team, but he’s atrocious.  I lose a lot of hope in the offensive line when Adams is inserted due to injury.  He’s a nightmare to watch when he pass blocks, as you can almost guarantee any decent pass rusher who lines up on Adams’ side will probably fare well against him.

Steelers vs Chiefs Film Review: Sean Spence

As the season wears on, it may be just me, but it does seem that Sean Spence is beginning to play better.
