Default Who's our safety in 2014?

It's looking like Troy will be back next year, with the strong safety position obviously locked down. With Ryan Clark on the way out though, who steps in at free safety? I don't think Thomas is quite up for the task yet, so that leaves either another free agent (like RC was) to step in or moving Taylor over.... What do you think happens?

As a side note, any other refugees from the Steelers.com forums? :)

welcome! shark may make a run at the fs spot! he has all the tools! i wouldnt be surprised if the steelers do make a play for a safety in free agency though...not a big name....maybe some young guy who can help out, Kendrick Lewis, Malcolm Jenkins, Nate Allen...to name a few. if not there are some nice lookin prospects via draft ...dix, reynolds, buchannon, bailey!

welcome to the board!

I think we bring Will Allen back. I still like Golden, this is going to be his third year, and I'm hoping he really battles for the spot over the summer.

We do have the chance to bring in another FA or pick up a big draft prospect. But I agree that I don't think Shamarko is up to it, and see him more as a FS anyway.

Shut down a while ago after being neglected for a long time. Haven't really been active on any Steelers forums since, but I've been reading here a while and thought I'd join in.

I think they will bring back W Allen, but I think Shark will take over mid season. While I think he (shark) will be the eventual replacement to Troy, I think he will do fine replacing Clark until Troy is gone. I imagine Golden will be kept, with re-signing of W Allen and Shark and Troy we will have all the depth we need. I also think they will draft another S in the top 3-4 picks to replace Clarks spot eventually.

Troy replaces Clark - Thomas replaces Troy- safeties are very interchangeable anyway- draft a potential FS.

Yep. Raises hand. I think Dwins is a member here as well.

As for safeties. way up in the air at this point. I'd love it to be Trot and some hotshot first or second rounder. Or, sadly, Shark, and some hotshot, if we really need the cap room and have to let Troy go.
