Steelers to Sign Standout G Isaac Seumalo to 3-Year Deal
The Steelers will sign Eagles guard Isaac Seumalo to a three-year deal according to Jordan Schultz of the Score.
The move will likely pay Seumalo well overall over those three years. Seumalo, 29, comes over from Philadelphia, where he has experience with assistant general manager Andy Weidl who was with the Eagles before joining the Steelers organization.
The move comes on the heels of Pittsburgh making some suspicious moves while looking to upgrade their offensive line. They signed Nate Herbig and then looked to be in on the Orlando Brown sweepstakes. Now, Seumalo will join the left side of the offensive line, giving it a significant boost with Mason Cole and James Daniels on the interior.
Isaac Seumalo started 60 games with the Eagles over his seven seasons with the team. It includes lengthy stints at left and right guard, including starting all 17 games at right guard this season.
As it stands moving forward, Kevin Dotson is seemingly out of a starting job. Pittsburgh’s starting interior line will be all players from free agency on the interior. It appears the Khan and Weidl are making it a point to address their offensive line. Now, Pittsburgh has a chance to make a serious splash with their focused rushing attack.
The Steelers also roster Kendrick Green and William Dunkle at the position. It was expected that the team would try to improve what’s in front of quarterback Kenny Pickett this off-season, especially as Weidl builds the trenches for the Eagles, who made the Super Bowl this past season. Evidently, signing Nate Herbig is the first step in doing so.
Now. Seumalo does the next step in that process. Pittsburgh still needs help at tackle and met with all the top tackles in the class. If the right fit comes along, there’s a good chance they try to seriously upgrade that in the draft.
