If anything, the Steelers pride themselves on continuity.
But when they line up for OTAs this week, they’ll put a different look on the field on both sides of the ball.
As noted by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, they’ll have at least three new starters on defense, a significant shift away from some experienced players.
All three of the new starters fit the Steelers mold of promote from within, having been stashed in reserve in recent years — Worilds and Allen were drafted, McLendon was an undrafted rookie signing who has developed during stints on the practice squad.
But the out-with-the-old isn’t just limited to defense.
And with two new offensive coaches and a special teams coach to integrate, the Steelers need all the getting-to-know-you time they can get this offseason.
