Tanoh Kpassagnon

While the Steelers have a great pair of starting defensive ends and a good nose tackle assuming they can bring back Tyson Alualu, there are some questions in terms of depth. Chris Wormley is set to be a free agent, and while both Carlos Davis and Isaiah Buggs have flashed, they seem like better fits on the inside. If Wormley walks, the team will need a new rotational defensive end.

While he has the best name on the list, Tanoh Kpassagnon would also be one of the better fits from the list above. He has great size that the team likes in their ends and is young and productive as a depth player. He seemed to actually be a starter for the Chiefs earlier in the year, but he became more of a backup as time went on. He still played well in that role though, so the Steelers would be getting a more than capable player if they signed him.

Given his age and production, this would likely come on a two-year deal, as he should command more than the minimum. That said, he isn’t set to break the bank this offseason, so he could realistically be had for a few million per year. He would provide a capable backup with some intriguing physical traits to work with. Karl Dunbar has gotten the best out of lineman so far, and he could certainly do a lot with a player like Kpassagnon. The team will need a natural end for depth, and Kpassagnon fits that bill.

While the ideal scenario would be the Steelers actually competing in this game, the team should still have an interest in the players set to compete. The team will have a lot of holes to fill this offseason, so adding from these Super Bowl rosters could aid in filling out the depth chart. Keep these names in mind as you watch the big game on Sunday.
