RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
An experienced backup and a linchpin of the Bears' special teams units, Steltz figures to fulfill a similar role this season.
Steltz is likely behind Major Wright for the starting safety gig this season, but given the revolving door at safety the past few years in Chicago, it would not be much of a surprise if he were able to carve out significant playing time.
Steltz will resume his depth role in the secondary, but also as an above average special teams contributor.
Steltz entered the 2009 offseason as the team's projected starting safety, but he spent much of last year in a reserve role, playing in 12 games and recording just 11 tackles. Steltz is unlikely to see more playing time this season following the offseason additions of safeties Chris Harris and Major Wright.
