'Patriots problem' belongs to the National Football League not just the Steelers

'Patriots problem' belongs to the National Football League not just the Steelers

A transcendent talent who is about to get paid like one, it will be hard for the Steelers to justify taking Bell off the field very often, but the 336 touches he saw in just 12 games last season are excessive.

"We knew at the end of previous year we needed to develop more than just spot drop (into coverage) and play zone", Butler said Wednesday after the first of two practices on the second day of minicamp. "We've got to be able to do that in order to advance defensively, in my opinion". Watt will play outside linebacker is Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme, where he'll have a chance to learn from a future Hall of Famer in James Harrison and join a linebacking corps that also includes Bud Dupree and Ryan Shazier as the Steelers load up their front seven. "If we want our dreams to unfold in a manner in which we envision them, we have to respect [the process]", he said. And at any day I feel we can win the Super Bowl.

"I think everybody is trying to get over that obstacle", Shazier added. The Steelers were the No. 2 seed and got to host the AFC championship, and gaining homefield advantage will be the primary goal of the regular season.

"I think Cam has the intelligence to play any position on the field", Lake said. Both sides are confident that a deal will get done, but at the end of the day, the Steelers will be the side conceding the most.

When the Patriots did win that Super Bowl title in 2008, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed the entire season because of a knee injury.

Basically, Bell could potentially make a little over $26.5 million guaranteed over the next two seasons if he is unable to come to terms with the Steelers and find a team that's willing to meet his demands. "These moments build to that". There are consequences for all of these moments and days.
