After riding the free agency high last week, fans were hoping that Omar Khan and Andy Weidl had a few more tricks up their sleeves this week. However, that wasn't the case. With already making some significant moves this offseason -- including adding two offensive guards and wiping the slate clean at the linebacker position -- the Pittsburgh Steelers are probably kicking their feet back for once since this all began.

Sadly, the news we heard yesterday was not so encouraging, and Mike Tomlin's team has another issue on their hands. Here's the latest Steelers news you need to know as we inch closer to April and the 2023 NFL Draft.

Steelers news:

On March 23rd, Terrell Edmunds made a public announcement on Twitter that he would be leaving Pittsburgh. The former first-round pick back in 2018 thanked the organization for everything they did for him but bid his team farewell as he looks for a fresh start elsewhere.

Fortunately, the Steelers were able to ink Damontae Kazee to a two-year deal early in the free agency period, but their depth at the position is still concerning. Some believe that Pittsburgh could target the safety position as early as the 17th overall pick in the NFL Draft with a player like Alabama's Brian Branch while others think a simple depth option would suffice. It will be interesting to see if they bring in another free agent safety after the Edmunds news.

In some fun-loving Steelers news, the mullet is staying for new linebacker Cole Holcomb. The first thing fans noticed when the team added a new top linebacker this year was no doubt his flowing locks. Holcomb confirmed to ESPN's Brooke Pryor yesterday that his mullet 'ain't going anywhere.'

While his hair might be business in the front and party in the back, Holcomb is going to be all business this fall as a starting linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He will look to wear the number 55 much better than Devin Bush did these past four seasons. Holcomb inked a three-year, $18 million deal with Pittsburgh in free agency and is expected to be a big part of the plan on defense moving forward.

NFL news:

The Steelers pre-draft pro day scouting trail has cooled down for now after Pittsburgh's most recent stop at Ohio State, but Mike Tomlin and Omar Khan are expected to hit the ground running again next week. For now, NFL mock drafts are in full swing. CBS Sports analyst Pete Prisco was the latest to update his mock draft following free agency.

With a run on offensive tackles in three of the four picks just before Pittsburgh is on the board with the 17th selection, he has the Steelers going with Illinois CB Devon Witherspoon. In the past, Witherspoon has rarely fallen this far in mocks, but his lack of testing and hamstring injury during the pre-draft process may cause him to slip a bit this April.
