Tuitt is recovering from pectoral surgery in October but expected to be ready for the season opener

Summary

Stephon Tuitt is a perfect fit in the Steelers scheme. He is big enough to hold at the point of attack, with enough quickness and athleticism to contribute as a pass rusher. The only issue with Tuitt is an inability to stay healthy. He has not completed a full season since becoming a starter in 2015 and is coming off a pectoral surgery that cost him ten games last year. Tuitt's best boxscore production was in 2015 with 39 tackles, 14 assists, and 6.5 sacks in 14 games. If he manages to stay on the field, we could see that kind of production again. (May 13)
