The Steelers and the Saints lead the group of teams CBS has listed to potentially have a major regression in the 2021 season. It sucks that we are in that category, however, it only makes sense. We are in salary cap purgatory. We are possibly going to lose many fan favorites on this roster. Those players include JuJu Smith-Schuster, Bud Dupree and much more. These guys are not also just fan favorites, they are also major contributors to this team.
You might say that the Steelers have many other capable wide receivers, however, losing JuJu potentially could hurt this team in the long run. He has not been that #1 guy as we would hope. However, he has been right there. He could still grow into that player for sure. He is one of the better receivers on the roster. So, it is safe to say that Steelers would be missing him regardless of who is left on the roster.
I think this is a fair prediction from CBS Sports. The Steelers have much to prove this season. I just hope Ben Roethlisberger and the team are up to the task even without key pieces that they have lost this season. The Steelers will need to get some hits in this draft and get some money together and sign some players and make another run at the Lombardi. However, if that is to happen. Many key players might need to take a pay cut. That starts with Ben Roethlisberger.
