Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Elandon Roberts knows a thing or two about Super Bowls.
As a member of the New England Patriots, Robert played in three of them and won two. The most memorable came on February 5, 2017 against the Atlanta Falcons. In that game, Roberts was part of a defensive unit that helped engineer one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, as the Patriots pulled out an improbable win in Super Bowl LI.
The following season, Roberts' Patriots once again reached the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, the result did not go in their favor, as quarterback Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles stole Super Bowl LII away from them. One season later, his Patriots redeemed themselves in Super Bowl LIII as they put on a defensive clinic in their victory against the Los Angeles Rams.
Coming off a successful 2022 campaign that saw him set career highs in total tackles, tackles for loss, sacks, and quarterback hits, Roberts looks to transfer this success to the Steelers this upcoming season. With many who have deemed the current group of inside linebackers as the weak link of the defensive unit.
Roberts brings both versatility and production, which should serve them well. In addition, his experience playing in some of the biggest games the NFL has to offer could serve well for the team down the stretch when it matters.
