“Everybody wants to be a starter on offense or defense and that is still my dream, to be a starter,” Dangerfield told Steelers.com about his role on the team. “I think they know what I can do here. You are a starter on special teams. There is sometimes more pressure because you aren’t getting 60 snaps, you are only getting maybe 20 a game. You have to be perfect on each of those plays.
“I love the pressure. You only get one play. You don’t have time for any mess-ups. You have to go out and deliver on that play. We only get a handful of plays, a certain amount of plays every game, depending on how the game goes. You have pressure to be perfect on that play.”
Dangerfield has been with the Steelers, the only NFL team he’s played for, since signing a reserve/future contract in 2014.
