S Mike Mitchell could switch positions
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin brought up the possibility of moving Mike Mitchell from free safety to strong safety, according to ESPN. Tomlin said he is "not opposed" to the switch.

Mitchell, who signed a five-year, $25 million contract in 2014, could take over the role at strong safety due to the team moving on from long-time Steeler Troy Polamalu.

The 27-year-old finished last season with 71 total tackles, three passes defensed and two forced fumbles in 16 starts.

Instead of talking with teams, Taylor might start pursuing a career in broadcasting with the NFL Network and NFL Films expressing interest.

"I've been talking with them," he said.

Taylor played his entire 12-year career with the Steelers. His contract expired after the 2014 season.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert wants to see the starting right outside linebacker earn the job this fall, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

With veteran James Harrison re-signing with the team, he and second-year linebacker Jarvis Jones will be in an "open competition" for the job.

Jones was hampered by injuries in his rookie season, limiting him to just seven games, totaling 18 tackles and two sacks. Harrison signed with Pittsburgh midway through 2014, totaling 45 tackles with 5 1/2 sacks in 11 games.
