Chris Carter of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, hosts the Locked on Steelers podcast.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' free agency moves addressed several needs on the roster, but there's a common thread in Omar Khan and Mike Tomlin finding detailed leaders to help with the team's locker room culture. Patrick Peterson, Elandon Roberts and Cole Holcomb have each worn captain patches for their teams and been vocal leaders and leaders by example. Isaac Semaulo also projects to be a leader for the Steelers' young offensive line. All of this appears to be a plan to develop a strong Steelers locker room around Kenny Pickett, Najee Harris and the future of the franchise.
Also, it's a mailbag episode where fans called into the show, and now their answers can be heard. Questions on whether the Steelers should re-sign Terrell Edmunds or draft Brian Branch at safety; whether the Steelers really upgraded at linebacker with Holcomb and Roberts over Myles Jack, Devin Bush and Robert Spillane; what kind of cornerback should the Steelers draft now that they've signed Peterson, and could it be a slot? Also, Chris Carter's thoughts on the Cincinnati Bengals signing Orlando Brown Jr. in free agency and why it shouldn't worry the Steelers' pass rush too much.
