Steelers News & Transactions Steelers Trade OT Marcus Gilbert to Arizona Published 5 months ago on March 8, 2019 By Mike Vukovcan 1shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailA day after signing two members of the offensive line, the Steelers have now traded one. Friday afternoon, ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the team traded long-time right tackle Marcus Gilbert to the Arizona Cardinals for a 6th round pick. Courtesy of Wikipedia Mention Steelers Now and save $10! The former second round pick in 2011 was a solid starter but had trouble getting on the field the last couple of years, playing in only 12 games. Gilbert was injured last season and didn’t get on the field after the bye week. The 31-year old was entering the final year of his contract and was expendable after the emergence of Matt Feiler (9 starts last season) and younger players like Chuks Okorafor (2018 3rd round pick) and Jerald Hawkins (2016 4th round pick). The Steelers will save $4.9 million in cap room in 2019 with this move. The team has been able to extend the contracts of Maurkice Pouncey (3-years/$29 million), Ramon Foster (2-years/$8.25 million) and BJ Finney ($3 million) prior to the trade of Gilbert. 1shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:featuredMarcus GilbertPittsburgh Steelers Up Next Steelers Trade Antonio Brown to Oakland Don't Miss Steelers Strike New Deals With Maurkice Pouncey, Ramon Foster Mike Vukovcan Continue Reading Advertisement You may like James Washington Continues Strong Preseason Performance Injury Updates: Benny Snell, Anthony Chickillo Evaluated; Devin Bush Absence ‘Precaution’ From the Locker Room: Rudolph Critical of his Play, Hilton Compliments Burns Steelers Overcome Sloppy, Delayed Start to Top Chiefs, 17-7 FINAL: Steelers 17, Kansas City Chiefs 7 Players, Coaches from around NFL Attend Darryl Drake’s Funeral Click to comment Leave a Reply This comment form is under antispam protection This comment form is under antispam protection Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Steelers Now in Your Mailbox!
