The news surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers has been minimal in recent weeks, but things are about to amp up very soon. Over the past week, Omar Khan and the front office made just one additional roster move -- releasing former starting center, Mason Cole. This means that Pittsburgh will certainly be looking to add center help in either free agency or the NFL Draft.

This week is the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine, and we could soon find out the players that Mike Tomlin and Pittsburgh's brass will be meeting with. As of now, it appears to be the calm before the storm. In the latest Steelers news, a former Pittsburgh Panther shares his dream to retire in Pittsburgh, while an important presser has been postponed.

Damar Hamlin wants to retire with the Pittsburgh Steelers

Damar Hamlin has been a member of the Buffalo Bills since he was drafted in the sixth round by the organization back in 2021. However, he recently gave props to Pittsburgh when speaking to the media. According to a video from Billy Leino, Hamlin was recorded saying that finishing his career as a Pittsburgh Steeler would be a dream.

Hamlin has become an inspirational figure around the NFL after coming back from a cardiac arrest that he suffered during a game late in the 2022 season. In addition to being an NFL safety, Hamlin is a keynote speaker and was a finalist for the Comeback Player of the Year award this year.

Omar Khan postpones NFL Combine media session

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager, Omar Khan was scheduled to speak to the media on Tuesday during NFL Combine Week. Unfortunately, his media availability has been postponed.

Steelers fans were anxious to see if Khan would give any telling information that shows his hand to where Pittsburgh could be heading with their first selection in the 2024 NFL Draft. We will have to wait for any potential cryptic messages to the media. As of now, there is no timetable for Khan's availability to the media during NFL Combine Week.

Steelers sign linebacker Jeremiah Moon

According to a report from Alan Saunders of Steelers Now, the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed linebacker Jeremiah Moon to a contract for the 2024 season, via the NFLPA salary report. Moon was claimed off waivers in January as he was recently a member of the Baltimore Ravens.

Moon entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2022 and didn't see his first action until he first stepped on the field for the Ravens in Week 3 of 2023. Moon has just 99 NFL defensive snaps under his belt, but the former Florida product possesses remarkable physical traits with elite size (6'4 3/4'', 249 pounds), explosion (41'' vertical, 11'1'' broad jump), and length (35'' arms, 83 5/8'' wingspan), per Mockdraftable.
