Steelers need to pursue these top remaining free agents right now
Steelers should pursue Mathieu
Tyrann Mathieu has been demanded to be signed by the Steelers many times over his career. He has always gone elsewhere during his time as a free agent, but fans hope that he finally comes to Pittsburgh. He has chosen both the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs before, but it might be different now.
This free agent will command a good market in free agency so that could cause an issue. He has shown interest in the franchise before on social media, but there have been no legit rumors between the team and this player just yet. The fans are trying to push this deal into reality and there is somewhat of a fit here.
Mathieu is a solid veteran that has some solid playing abilities in his own right. Adding him into this defense with Minkah Fitzpatrick as his safety partner would be special. That would be a great duo in the secondary, but there is somewhat of an issue with this plan.
The biggest concern would be the contract that would have to be shelled out to acquire a player of his stature in free agency. The other issue is this player has not played a ton of strong safety during his NFL career and that is what the black and gold are looking for. This would be a huge splash in the second portion of free agency, but don’t get your hopes up just yet Steelers Nation.
The Steelers have done a great job by filling holes in free agency and the news filtering in is slowing down. They could still add to the club if they want to.
