Chris Carter of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, hosts the Locked on Steelers podcast.
The Pittsburgh Steelers signed linebacker Cole Holcomb Wednesday, adding to a free agency class with Patrick Peterson, Nate Herbig, Larry Ogunjobi, and Damontae Kazee. But when looking at the finances of these moves, what do they signal for Omar Khan's plans for the rest of free agency and the NFL Draft? The writing is on the wall.
Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals made a big move to sign offensive tackle Orlando Brown to a huge contract to protect Joe Burrow. Reports show the Steelers made contact with Brown's camp. Does that mean the Steelers put a bid in for Brown? Or just kicked the tires? Either is a possibility, but if they actually were willing to pay a big deal and were just outbid, that could signify a big move could be coming soon in free agency.
Finally, Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter's draft stock appeared to take another negative hit Wednesday as he failed to complete his pro day performance and appeared nine pounds overweight, while not looking to be in his best shape. Could he fall to the Steelers? Probably not, but if he drops a little bit, it could change the draft plans of other NFL teams picking ahead of the Steelers, and open up prospects that were thought to be too good to fall to the 17th overall pick in the first round when the Steelers can make their first selection.
