Plenty has been accomplished by Omar Khan and the new front office during the offseason thus far. There are plenty of interesting options still out there available to sign with any club that wishes to pull the trigger on them. Most teams, including the Steelers, will likely wait until after the draft before they even consider these top options still out there looking for work.

Cap space is not on Pittsburgh's side right now as they currently sit around five and a half million in spending cash. That comes after the shocking trade that saw Allen Robinson get sent to the steel city for little cost. Spending cash could easily be opened up with different contract moves. There are plenty of needs heading into draft weekend that still need to be filled, but they might not be able to fix all their issues during that span of time.

Bryce Callahan would be a dependable option in the slot on defense

One seemingly obvious choice that the black and gold should consider is Bryce Callahan. He is a veteran with seven years of NFL playing experience. Slot corner is a place where the club has not been able to find a stable answer at this juncture of the offseason. Ideally, they will be able to find one in the draft, but that might not be possible.

It seems like the club will target an outside cornerback early in this draft, and that will leave Arthur Maulet as the only significant contributor in the slot on this roster. That is not to say that someone else could emerge as a solid cover slot option on this team, but adding Callahan would calm some concerns. He has a ton of experience there and would be a more reliable option on cover downs than Maulet.
