5 underrated moves that the Steelers made during the offseason
The Steelers were able to fill up holes across their roster and get better on paper as they look ahead in 2022.
The Pittsburgh Steelers entered the offseason with many unknowns across their roster. They needed starters at different positions and needed to find quality depth as well. Both of those tasks were accomplished to varying degrees through free agency and the draft.
It was an unusually active offseason for the black and gold, but different circumstances birth different situations. They had cap space to work with and the needs for positions to be filled, which couldn’t be fixed at the draft alone. The team added many names across their roster that include starters that will be major contributors for this team in 2022.
With many different transactions come with some players that overshadow others. Major positions tend to get closer looks than others despite better players signing quality deals or where they are drafted. There are some players that have been flying under the radar since joining the team recently.
Steelers signing of James Daniels is underrated
James Daniels joins the Steelers after signing a nice value contract with the franchise. He has become one of the better guards in the NFL and provides some position flexibility in the middle of the offensive line. He has mostly found his home at guard in the league but could always play center when needed.
This was a huge upgrade for the offensive trenches for this team. They get a reliable starter that has a veteran presence despite still being young. He will be the club’s best offensive lineman on day one and should bring positive efforts to the retooling of the front group.
