Since the draft concluded, this front office of the Steelers has continued their busy offseason. The draft saw this team get a chunk of upgrades across their roster, and the team should be better off because of it. The final roster is far from being set, but this club has not been afraid to add quality players to compete and battle to make the team.

Omar Khan has branded his thumbprint on this roster as it looks completely different from last season’s installment. There is a revamp in the trenches and different weapons on offense. Getting younger and better at those spots should prove to be a good number of decisions. Free agency and rumors surrounding the club are in full effect as they try and finish this 90-man roster construction before the pre-season process begins.

Pittsburgh added a depth defensive lineman to their roster via claim

It was announced in recent days that Renell Wren would be sidelined for the entire 2023 season due to injury. He spent last season on the practice squad and would have competed for a depth role if he was able to improve form last year. That will have to wait until at least next season after he sustained this injury, which is unfortunate for this time of year.

One man's misfortune brings a new opportunity for another as the Steelers claimed Manny Jones from the Arizona Cardinals. He is a former undrafted free agent coming out of Colorado State in 2022. Jones spent all of last year with the Cardinals and should be able to fight for a practice squad spot with the black and gold.

This defensive line should have a lot of players that compete to make this club. It is likely that the final spots will come down to some mixture of Arman Watts, Breiden Fehoko, Montravius Adams, and Jones. This is a deep group that should only sharpen each other's skills and abilities on the football field. Jones has an uphill battle to make this roster.
