Steelers maintain Super Bowl expectations despite turnover

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers experienced a significant amount of turnover during the offseason, yet they opened training camp on Thursday with the same lofty Super Bowl expectations.

"Everybody in the NFL has the same goal, and that's to win a Super Bowl," veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "It doesn't matter if you come from another team, if you've been here for a long time, or if you're a rookie. Everyone wants the same thing. It's a matter of getting on the same page at the right time."

Roethlisberger took a pay cut to return for an 18th NFL season, but the 39-year-old signal caller will do it playing behind a revamped offensive line. Maurkice Pouncey retired and David DeCastro was released with a "non-football injury." Alejandro Villanueva and Matt Feiler left in free agency. Pouncey, DeCastro and Villanueva combined for 17 Pro Bowls.
