Saunders on Locked On Steelers: Highsmith a Star, But Will He Be Here Long Term?



Steelers Alex Highsmith

Alex Highsmith is no longer just T.J. Watt’s sidekick, but a star in his own right as yet another to add to the lineage of dangerous Pittsburgh Steelers edge rushers, but will his future be in Pittsburgh, or will he join Bud Dupree as players that out-grew the Steelers’ salary cap space available to allocate to the decision alongside a big earner like Watt?

Steelers Now editor Alan Saunders joined Chris Carter of the Locked on Steelers podcast to talk about Highsmith’s emergence as a real-deal edge rusher and how things might play out with his future. Alan and Chris also broke down Marcus Allen’s boneheaded penalty and how the Steelers applied their lessons from the Ravens loss to dominate the line of scrimmage and value the football against the Carolina Panthers.
