Trent Brown, OT

If the Steelers are okay going with an older signing on their offensive line, look no further than Trent Brown. The long-time New England Patriots offensive tackle has been a staple to their offense for the better part of a decade. Despite being a former 7th-round draft choice, Brown quickly climbed the ladder and earned a massive contract back in 2019.

Since then, Brown has been playing on smaller one and two-year deals. But at 30 years old, the veteran offensive tackle arguably just had his best season to date in 2023. Brown played every snap at left tackle this past year, but he has been a right tackle for most of his career to date.

No matter where the Steelers elect to play him, there's no question that they could use his services. At 6'8'' and 370 pounds, Brown is one of the biggest players in the NFL-- regardless of position. He's a people-mover as a run-blocker and a brick wall in pass protection.

Brown's play will fall off eventually, but good offensive tackles can last a very long time in this league. Pairing Brown with Broderick Jones would be a move the Steelers wouldn't regret and it would help the offense greatly.
