RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

An experienced backup and a linchpin of the Bears' special teams units, Steltz figures to fulfill a similar role this season.

2012

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.

2011

Steltz will resume his depth role in the secondary, but also as an above average special teams contributor.

2010

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.
