Steelers Announce 2016 Team Captains

Ravens Steelers Football

With the 2016 Steelers opener one week from tonight, today the black and gold announced their captains for the upcoming season.

On offense it’s no shock as Ben Roethlisberger will again serve in that role. On defense William Gay and Cameron Heyward will serve as captains, and the special teams captain will again be Robert Golden.

All four players have already had time serving as team captain under their belt, so while it’s nothing new, they all know the importance of it.

“Just like the tradition of this team, it’s a humbling honor to be elected by your teammates to be a captain,” Roethlisberger said on Monday.

“To go in the archives with the greats who have played on this team is special.”

Big Ben is no stranger to being in charge of the offense, as this will be his 8th go around as team captain.
