Inside the AFC North

July 2, 2009 11:05 AM

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Here are several notes and observations this week within the division:

* Will the Pittsburgh Steelers use all of their salary-cap room provided by the recent signing of left tackle Max Starks? That is a valid question to ponder, because no team likes to go into the season with zero wiggle room. For example, when backup quarterback Charlie Batch broke his collarbone last year, the Steelers saved enough cap space and flexibility to sign a quality backup in Byron Leftwich, who proved to be a great pickup and helped win a couple of games during their Super Bowl run. The team may opt to keep some "injury protection" money again this year instead of reaching as many long-term deals as possible with its heralded 2010 free-agent class that includes players such as tight end Heath Miller and safety Ryan Clark.

AFC North mailbag: Special teams

Let's see what's on the minds of AFC North readers this week.

Ryan from Kalamazoo, Mich., writes: James, the Pittsburgh Steelers special teams have been shaky for several seasons; any reason to expect different this season?

James Walker: Yes, there are several reasons, Ryan. The first reason is Pittsburgh punter Daniel Sepulveda is healthy again. If he returns to form, that would be a huge boost for the Steelers after just getting by on special teams last season. Second, the Steelers drafted several players who are versatile enough to return kicks, such as receiver Mike Wallace and cornerback Joe Burnett. Therefore, if the team doesn't find a better return game this year it won't be for a lack of effort.

I don't think our special teams was all that shaky last year. The only down fall was the punting game. Our return game was not the best but we didn't turn the ball over. I couldn't have asked for a better cover team then we had last year.
