Steelers are interested in re-signing UFAs Matt Feiler, NT Tyson Alualu and CBs Mike Hilton and Cam Sutton, per team source. Whether they do might be another matter.— Gerry Dulac (@gerrydulac) March 15, 2021
The Steelers would obviously love to re-sign all four, but the league’s lowered salary cap and their own financial challenges remain significant barriers.
Sutton, Feiler and Alualu are more likely options for Pittsburgh likely options for the Steelers individually, while Hilton’s asking price could become prove to pricey.
If Hilton signs elsewhere, the Steelers will likely put a premium on returning Sutton.
Free agency officially begins at 4 p.m. on March 17 with the official start of the 2021 league year.
