The Atlanta Falcons said goodbye to both of their safeties in 2021—Keanu Neal and Damontae Kazee—who both left to reunite with Dan Quinn in Dallas.

Kazee hasn't been a 16-game starter since leaving the Falcons, nevertheless, he has been a good role player for the Cowboys in 2021 and the Steelers in 2022. He has forced six turnovers in 26 games since 2020 which is a respectable number, especially for someone who doesn't play 24/7.

The Steelers only had him for nine games last year due to injury but that was enough for them to bring him back on a two-year deal.
