Elite Youth E.J. Gaines Jersey If Kirk Cousins gets injured, the team is screwed … and I guess so is Kirk, since he is on a one-year deal. Jay Gruden has really created a successful mind meld with the quarterback. Kirk is comfortable in this offense, and he has weapons. Neither Colt McCoy nor Nate Sudfeld could come in and run this offense for an extended period the way that Cousins can, and the lack of offensive production would doom a young defense that is counting on help in the time-of-possession department.
In Wilcox, the Steelers get a reliable third safety with starter’s experience. Sources say Mike Mitchell and Sean Davis both expect to play Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns, but they’ve missed some time in the preseason, with Mitchell missing more than a month.
Backups Jordan Dangerfield and Robert Golden are core special-teamers, but the secondary as a whole was not crisp early in the preseason, and the Steelers look ready to upgrade in case their starters go down again.

Wilcox signed a two-year deal with the Bucs this spring for $6.25 million to help fill the void left by Bradley McDougald, who signed with the Seattle Seahawks.
He was brought in to challenge for a starting role but wound up behind Chris Conte and Keith Tandy on the depth chart. Wilcox was seeing action as the third safety in the Bucs’ big nickel packages, however.
