ESPN NFL analyst Matt Williamson wasn't impressed with the Steelers' offseason, apparently.
He loved what the rest of the AFC North did, though.
Williamson gave the Steelers a 'C' overall grade, the second-lowest grade in the AFC, just ahead of Oakland's 'C-."
Writes Williamson (as transcribed by ESPN's Jamison Hensley):
If Roethlisberger, Heath Miller, Troy Polamalu and the offensive line overall remain reasonably healthy, which is far from a given, Pittsburgh could be quite formidable. If not, and the Steelers get very little production from the young players on this roster, it could be a tough year.
Williamson gave Baltimore an A- (losing seven defensive starters is a positive thing, apparently) and Cleveland a B (it's unclear how the Browns have improved by drafting the defensive player least likely to contribute this season, not addressing their shallow cornerback group and signing one of the Ravens starters who apparently wasn't much of a loss to them).
