The Pittsburgh Steelers have been going through a defensive rebuild for years now. As players like James Farrior, Larry Foote, Casey Hampton and Troy Polamalu all left the team, the search for their replacements has been anything but smooth. There were rough years, but the team seems to have a firm grasp on their current depth chart, begging the question if the defensive rebuild is finally complete?
In the latest edition of the Steelers Connection, I take a look at players lost, players added to replace, and just how long, if not already, the rebuild will continue?
Of course, the answer to this difficult question is much deeper than simply the roster additions and subtractions. I dive into the defensive scheme under Keith Butler compared to Dick LeBeau, where the unit might still have some deficiencies, and just how far off they might be from completing the rebuilding process.
