Wisniewski comes to Pittsburgh as a free agent after spending last season with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he won his second Super Bowl in three years, starting in all three playoff games. Prior to his one year in Kansas City, Wisniewski played for the Philadelphia Eagles, starting 17 games over three seasons, as well as all three of the team’s 2017 playoff games, including the Super Bowl win over the Patriots.
A graduate of Central Catholic high school in Pittsburgh, Wisniewski then went on to play for the Penn State Nittany Lions, where he was an All-American center in 2010. He was then drafted in the 2nd round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. After a brief stop in Jacksonville, Wisniewski signed with the Eagles and moved to left guard.
The terms of Wisniewski’s contract have yet to be announced, but according to NFL network’s Tom Pelissero, it will be a two year deal.
The #Steelers are signing veteran OL Stefen Wisniewski to a two-year deal, source said. He started at OG in every postseason game for KC last season, and has started for 2 of the past 3 SB winners.
