Highsmith seeks to make bigger impact on Steelers defense

LATROBE, Pa. (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Alex Highsmith wants to make an even bigger impact on the defense this season.

Highsmith starred on the right side during his first full season as a starter. This year, Highsmith wants to cause greater havoc opposite teammate T.J. Watt, the reigning AP Defensive Player of the Year.

"I think I've taken a step up this year," Highsmith said. "I'm just looking forward to continuing to grow, continuing to get better and continuing to learn our defense more."
