That means Hank Poteat, everyone's favorite whipping boy, has made this team.
That's the bad news. Now here's the good: Unless the Steelers
have two or three injuries among their cornerbacks, Poteat will
never see the field on the coverage units. He's made this team
strictly as a return man.
Chidi Iwuoma and Ike Taylor have shown enough coverage
skills to assure that they will see the field if dire circumstances
arise long before Poteat steps onto the field to be targeted by
The Steelers did little to upgrade their cornerbacks this
offseason, adding only Taylor as a fourth-round pick. But
Iwuoma's improvement and the addition of Taylor's athleticism
will at least be enough to keep Poteat on the bench.
