Which of their own key free agents will the Steelers re-sign?

Miles Killebrew, DB

This one is easy. There may not be a better special teams player, in all of football, than Miles Killebrew. It doesn't matter if he doesn't play a snap on defense. This guy is an All-Pro for a reason. Having blocked four career punts, including a big one against the Ravens last year, Killebrew deserved his honors in 2023.

There is no chance the Steelers allow him to leave the building.

Armon Watts, DL

As far as a rotational defensive lineman goes, Armon Watts fits the bill perfectly. He isn't going to come too expensive. But, he's good enough to play meaningful snaps and is great against the run. He isn't too shabby in pass situations, either, but he really shines in the run game.

Dylan Cook, OL

Last season, Dylan Cook didn't play a down for the Steelers. He spent the year as the team's ninth, inactive lineman each week. However, the coaching staff has previously shown a lot of belief in his ability to play multiple positions. The team has expressed their belief that he'll eventually be part of the 53-man roster, too. He'll be back.

Chandon Sullivan, CB

While he isn't an All Pro, Chandon Sullivan played well enough last year to warrant being brought back. He's a fine nickel, although the team might bring in some competition late in the draft, just to give him a nudge. Last year, Sullivan only allowed one touchdown on 246 coverage snaps.
