Star players often capture the spotlight around the NFL. This is especially true this time of year when many standout players receive massive contract extensions, suffer injuries or run into off-the-field trouble.

But every year, we also witness plenty of unproven, promising young playmakers step out of the shadows and make a name for themselves with a breakout season.

Some of these guys were merely backups or barely even played the previous year (if they saw the field at all), while others were full-fledged starters who just haven’t quite reached their immense potential.

Here are five players poised to break out for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015.

The Philadelphia Eagles have decided to roll the dice on unretired offensive lineman John Moffitt and are signing him to a one-year contract, FOX Sports’ Ross Jones reports.

The last we heard about Moffitt was in March of last year, when he was arrested on drug and battery charges after he punched a 40-year-old man in the head and got caught with pot, cocaine and ecstasy.

The former 2011 third round pick (No. 75 overall) out of Wisconsin retired in 2013 due to drug-related issues, but seems to have cleaned up his life since his last arrest and has been training the past three months as he’s attempted an NFL comeback. Now 28 years old, Moffitt could face an uphill battle to make the Eagles’ final 53-man roster, but he has a chance to prove himself and will compete for the starting right guard job following the departure of Mathis.

Check out a series of interesting videos below related to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Missouri Tigers star defensive lineman Harold Brantley, a potential 2016 first round draft pick, suffered “serious” injuries from a single-car crash Sunday afternoon, the Columbia Daily Tribune reports.

According to the report, Bradley started driving off the left side of the road on U.S. Highway 63, and when he overcorrected to the right, his 2000 Chrysler Concorde slid off the road, hit a guard rail and overturned.

Neither Bradley nor the passenger, Missouri women’s basketball player Maddie Stock, were wearing seat belts.

Brantley and Stock were both transported to the University Hospital. Stock has already been treated and released, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Brantley remains in serious condition.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Brantley and his family. The 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive lineman was named Missouri’s freshman of the year in 2013 and earned an All-SEC honorable mention after recording 54 tackles, seven tackles for loss and five sacks last season. Stay tuned for updates to this story.

The Cleveland Browns’ second-year quarterback Johnny Manziel fumbled three times in a span of six plays at Tuesday’s practice, according to ESPN Browns beat writer Pat McManamon. Unfortunately, we don’t have video of the reported mishaps, but each of the fumbles came from the shotgun formation.

Now living with his former high school coach, Manziel really seems to have gotten his personal life under control and teammates and coaches have been raving about his much-improved work ethic this offseason.

But the former No. 22 overall pick from last year’s draft is still struggling in practice with basic concepts.

Josh McCown, an NFL journeyman who turns 36 next month, is fully expected to open the season as Cleveland’s starting quarterback, but Manziel has a legitimate shot to take over under center at some point this year if he continues to stay out of trouble and progresses as a quarterback. McCown is a short-term band-aid and an absolute train wreck in Tampa Bay last year. Without a QB whisperer at his side, McCown is destined to stumble.

Check out a series of interesting videos below related to the Cleveland Browns.
