After several years of continuity, the Pittsburgh Steelers special teams room had a bumpy 2020. By the end, though, it was the same familiar faces kicking, punting and snapping. But will that endure into next season?

Jordan Berry had been the Steelers punter for every game from the opening of the 2015 season until six days before the opening of this past season. Chris Boswell Jersey was the Steelers’ kicker for all but two games between his October 2015 debut and this past December. Kameron Canaday Jersey streak of serving as Steelers’ long snapper endures at 64 games (and counting) since winning the job during 2017 training camp.

But Berry was replaced for the first five games of this season. Boswell missed three of the final four games because of groin ailment(s). And the Steelers are holding a long-snapping specialist on their offseason roster as potential camp competition for Canaday this summer.

In the NFL, virtually no job is assured from year to year, but that is especially so with the Steelers special-teamers in 2021.

Boswell had a second consecutive strong season (19 for 20 on field goals, 34 of 38 on extra points), but he is entering his 30s with a recent injury history and a hefty salary due, so it is conceivable the Steelers will explore alternatives.

One of those alternatives will not be Matthew Wright. Wright filled in for Boswell for three late-season games and was perfect on 11 kicks (seven extra points and four field goals). But the Steelers are wary of his lack of leg strength, so much so they did not sign him to their offseason roster.

The only punter under contract is Corliss Waitman. Leg strength is no issue for him, and the 6-foot-2, 210-pound lefty could be ready to take over as Berry’s successor after a year of seasoning on the practice squad. Waitman has not punted in a game situation since midway through the 2018 season, though, because of injury and the lack of an NCAA transfer waiver.

Still, the Steelers already replaced Berry once — using veteran Dustin Colquitt to punt the first month of this past season — so they might do so again. At very least, expect some veteran (perhaps Berry) to be signed for a camp competition with Waitman.

Canaday has been pushed by a handful of snappers over the years in camp since beating out draft pick Colin Holba for the gig in 2017. But none have returned as often as Christian Kuntz Jersey, a graduate of Chartiers Valley and Duquesne. A college linebacker, judging by all the tryouts and practice-squad time he keeps getting, Kuntz is on the fringe of being some NFL team’s long snapper.

The Steelers haven’t drafted a kicker or punter since 2007, when, during the first draft of Mike Tomlin’s tenure, they traded up to select punter Daniel Sepulveda Jersey in the fourth round.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a lot of issues to deal with this offseason. One of them is the pending decision surrounding Ben Roethlisberger Jersey and his $41 million salary cap hit, and another would be the questions surrounding the salary cap for the upcoming season.

While we don’t know the actual number for the 2021 salary cap, it is never too early to think about who the Steelers should, or could, keep in free agency.

Some fans might suggest doing this is frivolous considering the Steelers’ salary cap position heading into the 2021 league year, but I would suggest taking a realistic approach to this exercise can prove to be valuable.

I’ve broken down the Unrestricted Free Agents (UFA) into offense and defense. I have placed all Restricted Free Agents (RFA) and Exclusive Rights Free Agents (ERFA) into their own category, considering they will all likely be returning with the organization having the right to first refusal on those players.

Take a look at the lists below, and let us know who should stay, or let walk, in the comment section below!

Offense
Alejandro Villanueva Jersey — LT — UFA
Matt Feiler Jersey — RT — UFA
Zach Banner Jersey — RT — UFA
JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey — WR — UFA
Danny Isidora — RG — UFA
James Conner Jersey — RB — UFA
Jerald Hawkins Jersey — RT — UFA
Joshua Dobbs Jersey — QB — UFA

Defense
Bud Dupree Jersey— EDGE — UFA
Avery Williamson Jersey — LB — UFA
Mike Hilton Jersey — CB — UFA
Tyson Alualu Jersey — IDL — UFA
Jayrone Elliott Jersey — EDGE — UFA
Cassius Marsh — EDGE — UFA
Jordan Berry Jersey — P — UFA
Chris Wormley Jersey — IDL — UFA
Sean Davis Jersey — S — UFA
Jordan Dangerfield Jersey — S — UFA
Cameron Sutton Jersey — CB — UFA

Specialists
Jordan Berry — P — UFA

RFA/ERFA
Ray-Ray McCloud Jersey — WR — RFA
Marcus Allen Jersey — S — ERFA
Olasunkanmi Adeniyi Jersey — EDGE — RFA
J.C. Hassenauer Jersey — C ERFA
Robert Spillane Jersey — LB — ERFA

Okay, time to play the game! Who are your priority signings, and who should the team let test the free agent waters? Try to be realistic throughout this exercise. For instance, the odds of the Steelers keeping Dupree, Hilton and Sutton are small.

Steelers WR James Washington Build Your Own Jersey

There has been a familiar refrain that plenty of my BTSC community brethren have been more than happy to enthusiastically remind me of since the Steelers disappointing end to the 2020 NFL season. The NFL is not a family, it’s big business. Although I personally believe it has to be a bit of both; especially for a franchise with the unmatched legacy of the Pittsburgh Steelers, there is no denying that the NFL is an empire worth billions. However, the moment any business forgets what truly sets them apart and makes them special, they usually cease to be just that.

The 2021 NFL season will be a contract season for Steelers WR James Washington Jersey and the implications of a productive campaign could be huge for his future earnings and stability as a professional. Problem is there are a plethora of unanswered questions that still need answered, ranging from who will be the Steelers starting QB next year to just where Washington will stack up in the WR depth chart when the season rolls around. Both answers will undoubtedly impact Washington’s production in 2021.

Last season Washington was a valuable member of a stacked wide receiver group that went four deep, five actually when you consider seldom used jack of all trades Ray Ray McCloud. He finally was able to develop a solid rapport with Ben Roethlisberger Jersey, to the point where the Steelers veteran signal caller openly expressed his trust in Washington to come down with contested catches in the key moments of the game. That was a far cry from his rookie year where he failed to make any sort of a positive connection with Roethlisberger.

Washington may very well see an substantial uptick in targets next season if everything transpires as expected, but a wise man learns to always expect the unexpected. If the rumors are to be believed, free agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is looking to take his brand to a bigger market. While Smith-Schuster denied the rumor shortly after; expressing his desire to remain with the Black and Gold, the logistics of such a move in free agency make perfect sense, both personally and financially.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is from the west coast, and his family still resides there. The latest rumor states that the Las Vegas Raiders are interested in acquiring his services. The Raiders have both cap space and a real need to improve their talent at wide receiver. Closer to home, plus a much larger market for his brand. A talented young receiver taking star billing in the Sin City. What’s not to like if you are Smith-Schuster? Also, JuJu can only guess who the Steelers starting QB will be next year, and the following season. The Raiders QB situation is arguably more stable at the moment.

All this reality would seem to bode well for Washington’s immediate future with the Steelers. Last season he had to compete for targets with the talented trio of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Chase Claypool Jersey, and Diontae Johnson Jersey. Not to mention the talented but unreliable TE Eric Ebron Jersey. If Smith-Schuster does take his talents elsewhere, Washington moves up a spot in the pecking order and sees an increase in opportunities.

Washington will need to continue working hard this off season to expand his route tree and improve his footwork necessary to achieve greater separation on said routes. He made noticeable strides in his game last season. Washington has a knack of gaining a quick three or four yards separation on his deep routes, but defenders easily recover because he lacks true long speed. This requires that Washington and whoever is playing QB moving forward have a strong connection and superior timing.

The Steelers are notorious for selecting a wide receiver during the first couple days of the NFL Draft each year, quite successfully I might add. They are constantly looking to discover inexpensive young talent at the position. That strategy has served them well in the past, but that may not be an option this draft.

First off, one day soon they may no longer have a future Hall of Famer as their starting QB to help the young newcomers shine. Secondly, they have too many holes to fill along the offensive line and at linebacker to use a earlier round selection on another receiver. A stud tight end is entirely possible, but not another receiver. It’s a luxury that the Steelers simply can’t afford this season.

Washington is not as talented as JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey, but I trust he is more than capable of stepping up his game and getting the job done if JuJu does indeed take his talents elsewhere.
