When Devin Bush was lost in week five last season, most people expected Ulysses Gilbert to get the call. Instead, the Steelers turned to the second year, former undrafted free agent Robert Spillane. It did not take long to understand why. Spillane played like a veteran. He was on the field for almost 91% of the defensive plays over a six-game span before he too was bitten by the injury bug. Spillane saw action in most sub-packages, showing good ability in coverage while recording an interception and breaking up four passes. He also got to quarterbacks twice for sacks on blitzes. With Bush expected back in his full role by September, it is hard to say what, if any, role Spillane will have in the defense at the start of the season, but it would not be a surprise to see him replace Williams in passing situations or even as a starter next to Bush.
