Considering the Steelers’ reliance on the next-man-up mentality, these five backups could play more snaps than many are expecting in 2021.
Seemingly since Mike Tomlin took over as the coach for the Steelers, he has presented the idea that the team relies on a next-man-up style of roster. Instead of pricy free agents and trade acquisitions, the team will try to draft and develop its players instead. Likewise, when an injury or departure occurs, the team will look Signed Ray-Ray McCloud Jersey, in-house before going with someone not currently on the roster. This can lead to some unexpected backups playing far more than most would expect one to play.

The former Clemson gadget player and return specialist stabilized the return game for the first time in forever, and now entering his second camp with the team Ray-Ray McCloud Jersey Ebay, he figures to try and make more of an impact on offense. The team tried to use him as a Ryan Switzer clone last season, and while the results weren’t great, he did end up playing 15 percent of the offensive snaps.
