Pittsburgh Steelers 2023 Free Agents



Steelers CB Cam Sutton Free Agents

The Pittsburgh Steelers and new general manager Omar Khan will have a lot of work to do to improve the team’s roster and try to make sure the team isn’t sitting out the first weekend of the NFL postseason again next year.

The 2023 NFL Draft is coming up in April, but before that, Khan and assistant general manager Andy Weidl will get their first shot at NFL free agency in March.

The Steelers will certainly take a swing and landing some other team’s players when the negotiation window opens on March 13. In the meantime, they can focus on re-signing some of their own free agents.

The Steelers must submit a qualifying offer to each of these five players if they would like to retain their rights for 2023. The amount of the qualifying offer will be determined by the amount of compensation due to the team if they are signed away by another club. The minimum tender value is $2.433 million. The players can either sign that one-year tender or try to work out a contract with the Steelers or another team. If they sign with another team, the Steelers have the right to match.
