This is interesting. According to Jeremy Fowler, the Steelers were interested in LT Orlando Brown, one of the top free agents on the market.
Among teams that showed interest in Orlando Brown, per agent Michael Portner: The #Steelers and #Jets. Bengals put deal over the top with strong guarantees over long term. @TomPelissero 1st on the deal.

He signed with the Bengals with a four year, $64M contract that included $43.5M in guarantees.
Once again, the guaranteed money loses the Steelers a big-time splash. The steelers never throw serious guaranteed money around.
The steelers tried to be aggressive but didn’t get the job done. But this does speak volumes. What could this mean for the rest of free agency?The s
It does tell you the Steelers want to improve the offensive line and looked to add flexibility for the draft, as pick 17 will come down to a handful of positions, most likely defense.
There aren’t many free agent left tackles available, so if the Steelers want an upgrade before the draft, they could still sign someone, but the options aren’t inspiring.
Now the cap they offer, they could use that in other areas of need, such as re-signing their free agents.
Still a busy week regarding the Steelers; check back with SteelYinzers.com for updates!
