The Steelers believed they had the best outside linebacker tandem in the NFL the past two seasons with T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree. Now they think they might have the best trio of outside edge rushers in the league.
And that’s because of the addition of Melvin Ingram.
That was especially evident in Sunday’s 23-16 road victory against the Buffalo Bills when Watt, Ingram and Alex Highsmith repeatedly rotated without any drop-off in performance.
Watt, of course, was his usual disruptive self, despite playing for the first time since the end of last season. But Ingram looked like the player who was a three-time Pro Bowl selection with the Los Angeles Chargers. And Highsmith continued to do what he did in the preseason — show he is a player on the rise in just his second season.
