Omar Khan’s Activity In Free Agency Gives Steelers Some Freedom In The Draft

In Omar Khan’s first offseason as general manager of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Steelers have been un-Steeler like. In the first week of free agency they have signed and re-signed six players. These moves, have not only shaken up the team completely in some positions (looking at you, inside linebacker room) but also now allow Khan and head coach Mike Tomlin a lot more flexibility in the NFL Draft.

Entering the offseason the Steelers had a ton of needs. Cameron Heyward needed another consistently capable defensive lineman to pair with him, the secondary needed to sign or re-sign a cornerback, the offensive line needed depth, and something needed to be done about the inside linebacker room.
