Default Doggett will have to earn his way on special teams for Steelers

Doggett will have to earn his way on special teams for Steelers
http://www.profootballweekly.com/201...-special-teams

By Mike Wilkening

In a clear signal the Steelers are looking to upgrade their coverage units after having major problems on kickoff returns last season, the Steelers signed Winnipeg Blue Bombers LB Derrick Doggett on Jan. 19. The 6-foot, 210-pound Doggett notched 27 special-teams tackles for the Blue Bombers last season, and CFL insiders surveyed by PFW this week noted his tenacity covering kicks. Special teams will be Doggett's ticket onto the roster in Pittsburgh: he didn't play regularly on defense in Winnipeg, he's on the small side for an inside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, and he's a little stiff in the hips. However, Doggett has good straight-line speed, and he relishes running down on kicks, from all accounts. Doggett, 25, played collegiately at Oregon State. After going undrafted in 2008, Doggett signed with the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos before eventually landing with the Blue Bombers.

Well he is from Canadian team, and look at the last guy the Steelers got from a Canadian team.

I say we forget the CFL and go get some of those crazies in Australia playing Australian Rules Football. Now there's some individuals that relish a good "pop"!

As all unproven, small-name offseason pickups have to do.

Will be keeping my eye on him, especially considering Logan's success.

I truly believe Derrick Doggett will make the final 53 man roster and knock off Patrick Bailey from the team. I can't wait to see Derrick in the preseason.

Patrick Bailey was on the team for special teams play and to me he didn't stand out last season. I just didn't see him make a lot of plays like he did his rookie season.
