State of the Steelers: 2022 Offseason Depth Chart

Published

on

The 2021 NFL season officially came to a close with the Los Angeles Rams’ victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday night.

With that, the 2022 offseason is on deck, with what is expected to be a slate full of significant changes for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are interviewing candidates for a new general manager, have already replaced defensive coordinator Keith Butler with Teryl Austin, and will spend most of the rest of the offseason with the top priority being replacing retired quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

To start the offseason, Steelers Now is taking a look at the state of the team, from free agency, to the salary cap, to the draft, and the current status of the 90-man offseason roster.

An NFL offseason roster can have up to 90 players on, but even after the Steelers signed most of their 2021 practice squad to reserve/future contracts, and pulled players back from the injured reserve list, they’re still well short of that mark entering the 2022 offseason.
