Steelers airing it out, connecting on several deep passes

The Steelers hit a few deep passes in the second half of the weather-delayed practice. While it's early, it sends a message the Steelers are going to test deep coverage. And perhaps the deep coverage needs more work.

Steelers beat reporter Mark Kaboly may just be copy-and-pasting the same concept over and over, just changing out the names.

The only question is whether Kaboly's barrage of "Steelers receiver beats Steelers defensive back deep" is an indication of an offense that wants to show early it won't be afraid to go long, or the secondary is struggling early on to prevent the big play.

In order, Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders and Kashif Moore beat Cortez Allen, William Gay and unannounced on deep plays.

Certainly, there's not a whole lot to be determined based on one interrupted practice session, but the idea of Brown and Sanders beating Allen and Gay deep is intriguing.

If not a little concerning as well.
