TUITT: Unsung Defensive Terror

They mention Pittsburgh Steelers defensive players like T.J. Watt, Cam Heyward and Minkah Fitzpatrick, but one name seems to slip through the cracks more than others.

Stephon Tuitt, the Steelers defensive end for the Steelers was drafted in the second round in 2014, and since joining the team he has put up some pretty impressive numbers.

From his rookie year up until the 2020 season, Tuitt has accumulated 34.5 sacks which is 13th in franchise history. Posting career highs last season with 11 sacks, 10 tackles for a loss and 25 quarterback hits.

And how is this for a stat? Pittsburgh became the only team in the NFL to have at least two(2) players with 11 or more sacks last year. Those two being Tuitt of course, the other the “should have been DPOY” T.J. Watt.

So I think it’s about time that #91 gets mentioned up there with the elite DE’s in the league. Look for him to produce even better numbers in 2021. #HereWeGo
