Well, the Kansas City Chiefs dynasty is almost complete. They are the modern-day New England Patriots, and everyone should be hating the idea that the Chiefs will be winning countless games as long as Patrick Mahomes is their quarterback. The future Hall of Fame quarterback brought the team to new heights and that got them another championship.

It was a slow Super Bowl at the start, but things began to turn around, especially as it entered the fourth quarter. It had lead changes and plenty of drama. Many people were watching, and you can bet that every team was too. The Steelers have a lot of work ahead of them as the offseason officially begins. Trying to take away some pending free agents from the Chiefs should be on their radar.

Drue Tranquill could add stability at linebacker for the Steelers

The inside linebacker position doesn't seem to be high on the free agency priority signing board, but it should have some interest from Pittsburgh. Cole Holcomb will be back by the beginning of the regular season and Elandon Roberts proved that he can be a reliable starter when injuries started to mount. But those behind them proved little quality when they were called to play significant snaps on defense.

Kwon Alexander is a free agent and is recovering from a season-ending injury himself. That could make him a player on the decline. Maybe looking elsewhere in free agency and signing someone like Drue Tranquill would be a wise decision. He has had his name connected to the black and gold as recently as last year, and he is someone who can start for you and play special teams.

Tranquill might not be the best coverage linebacker in the NFL, but he should be able to slide into that role better than some of the Steeler's current options on the roster. The athletic linebacker shouldn't cost an arm and a leg to sign either. He signed a cheap deal with the Chiefs last offseason, and it paid off in a Super Bowl. That should get him a slight raise, but this signing wouldn't break the bank for the Steelers.
