The Pittsburgh Steelers won the AFC North in 2020 but the season didn't end remotely like the team had planned. This offseason, the Steelers have spent a significant amount of time and money fixing the issues on both offense and defense.
Now that training camp and preseason games have concluded, the Pittsburgh Steelers have trimmed down their roster and created a depth chart for Week 1 of the regular season. The Steelers, as with most teams, could still make additional roster additions before the start of the season.
The Steelers will get their first test right out of the gate with a trip to Orchard Park, New York, to take on the Buffalo Bills.
Pittsburgh Steelers 53-man roster
Pittsburgh Steelers offense
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger may be entering his final season in the NFL, but the Steelers don't appear to have a succession plan. After ranking near the bottom in the running game, the Steelers drafted Alabama running back Najee Harris, who will now be Pittsburgh's lead back. The offensive line has been a battle all training camp and is finally set. As things stand, weapons are running a little low in Pittsburgh.
