Historically, the Pittsburgh Steelers are not big spenders in the early portions of free agency but in Omar Khan’s second season as general manager, he made a big splash. In signing middle linebacker Patrick Queen to the most lucrative contract to an outside free agent in team history, he added elite speed to the second level of their defense. Since the devastating injury to Ryan Shazier, the Steelers have been desperately searching for a three-down backer that could do everything at a high level and with Queen in the fold, there’s reason to believe they’ve found it.

SN’s Derrick Bell gives an exclusive interview with Pittsburgh’s prized offseason signing, covering a wide range of topics: His free agency decision to sign with the Steelers, Ravens rivalry, the intricacies of linebacker play in the NFL as well as his expectations for the 2024 season. On paper, the Steelers defense has a ton of talent, with playmakers at all three levels and should be in the running for one of the stingiest units in the entire league. This interview gives a unique perspective on both the player and person that Steelers fans can expect to see in the fall.
