Steelers safety target: Jeremy Chinn

Rounding out my free agent list is a major addition to the safety room. Last year, the Steelers relied on the combination of Keanu Neal and Damontae Kazee when both were healthy/not suspended to mediocre results. Frankly, I think this defense would benefit from having a more defined starting safety instead of multiple chess pieces.

In free agency, a player who fits that well is Jeremy Chinn. He flashed some strong tape in his first two seasons as a classic box safety, but injuries and the defense trying to use him in the deeper part of the secondary have limited his effectiveness.

He fits the mold of what this team likes, as he has the build of a linebacker but can serve as a traditional safety. He thrives in the box and can play deeper when needed, but adding him would give the defense a clear center fielder in Minkah Fitzpatrick and a classic box safety in Chinn.

The safety market has been depreciated in recent years as well, so I doubt that Chinn will land a big contract all things considered. He can be a cheap solution to provide this team with a more traditional starting safety for 2024.

While not every name on this list will make it to the Steelers, they are all ones that I personally believe fit what this team needs in 2024. They are on my short list of potential additions I hope this team targets.
