Solving the issues along the offensive like is vital for the Steelers success

Fixing the left side of the offensive line seemed to be the highest priority entering the offseason. That might be taking a small detour right now as the club did make a move during the first wave of free agency. Nate Herbig was signed to a contract that seemingly pays him to challenge Kevin Dotson for the starting spot as the club's left guard.

Even though Herbig was signed, that should not cause Pittsburgh to stray away from considering another addition to bring in to start at left guard. Maybe Dan Moore Jr. could be a fit there. Some have floated that idea out and it could make sense for him to throw his hat into the competition if an upgrade at left tackle takes over his starting role.

Trying to stabilize both guard and tackle on the left side is still a very important task to accomplish before training camp. The draft will have some interesting names that could entice the Steelers to take them at some point in the process. Names like Broderick Jones, O'Cyrus Torrence, Dawand Jones, and John Michael-Schmitz are some top options in the early goings of the draft. Free agency does not seem like a realistic avenue to upgrade this position unless Cincinnati is willing to trade Jonah Williams within the division.
