Wesley Johnson Could Be Backup Center In Season Opener

The Pittsburgh Steelers were forced to learn in a hurry last season just how crucial having a good backup center could be when they lost Maurkice Pouncey in the season opener after just eight snaps.

Tackle Reps May Be Hard To Come By For Wesley Johnson

It almost appears that the Pittsburgh Steelers are sending rookie Wesley Johnson mixed signals.
