Pro Football Weekly talks about the Steelers CB’s, and how Cortez Allen and Keenan Lewis could get a shot to be the starter opposite Ike Taylor in 2012.
It will be interesting to see how the Steelers proceed at cornerback. Yes, Ike Taylor struggled mightily in the wild-card playoff loss to Denver, but his complete body of work in 2011 was quite good, and he remains the team’s top corner. The other starting spot, however, bears watching, with William Gay slated to be an unrestricted free agent. It’s possible the Steelers go young at this spot. The Steelers like 2011 fourth-rounder Cortez Allen and 2009 third-rounder Keenan Lewis, and each stands a chance at getting a longer look next season.
