Trying to find depth at center could become a top need to address

Mason Cole is going to be the starting center for the Steelers this upcoming season. He has been an average starter at the position since joining the club a little over a year ago. His stability and chemistry with Kenny Pickett have been a nice thing to watch develop. Cole will likely not be the long-term answer unless he takes a step forward this season.

Khan is always looking for potential upgrades, but Cole has turned into a leader on the offensive line. He still has this season under contract with the Black and Gold before he becomes a potential free agent. Pittsburgh is currently hurting for depth behind their starting center, and lucky for them, there are a couple of free agents out there to sign.

Chase Roullier might be one of the best with his quality starts at the position during his time with Washington. That would be a tremendous upgrade over the other options currently on the roster. His biggest red flag is past health issues that have shortened his number of starts to this point in his career.

A couple of other names that have a good chunk of experience that are still looking for employment are Austin Blythe and Pat Elfein. Neither of the two has graded out well in recent years in terms of pro football focus. They would give the Steelers legit options as the backup centers that have shown the ability in the past in providing quality starting snaps.
