Kazee, 28 years old, is expected to play an important role in the Steelers’ secondary during the upcoming season. He will be joining a secondary team that includes Terrell Edmunds, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Karl Joseph.
Meanwhile, the Steelers are in a pivotal offseason. In the 2022 NFL Draft, they drafted Kenny Pickett as well as Chris Oladokun, a former South Dakota State standout. They will join Mason Rudolph and Mitch Trubisky in a quarterback room.
Mike Tomlin stated to reporters that Pickett is a candidate for Week 1 as the team’s starter.
He said that he had a chance to be our Week 1 starter, via NFL.com. I agree with his professional readiness.
It will be an interesting offseason in Pittsburgh.
