Off the field issues have hampered the Steelers as they headed into training camp. Running back Le’Veon Bell is looking at a possible suspension as he violated the league’s substance policy. Wide receiver Martavis Bryant has been suspended for the year for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Those are two key players from the Steelers offense. The team had the third rated overall and passing offense in 2015. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played in 12 games a season ago as he had to heal up from injuries. He ended the year completing a career high 68% of his throws for 3938 yards with 21 touchdowns and 16 picks. That was the highest interception total for Big Ben since the 23 he threw in the 2006 campaign. In the post season Roethlisberger completed just one touchdown pass. His top target in the passing game is Antonio Brown. Last year he caught 136 passes for 1834 yards all career highs. He finished with ten receiving touchdowns. For the Steelers to vie for home field advantage throughout the AFC Playoffs in 2016 they will need to improve on the 30th ranked passing defense in the league. Pittsburgh allowed 272 yards passing per game and finished with the 21st overall defense. They may look to go with a youth movement in the secondary as their top two picks in the draft in Artie Burns and Sean Davis are being considered in the starting lineup.
