New Steelers OL Stefen Wisniewski had interest from several teams, including the Chiefs, but he opted to sign with his hometown team. For the Pittsburgh native and Penn State grad, it was too good an opportunity to pass up -- along with the chance to be a starter with the retirement of Ramon Foster. "The fact that all the stars kind of lined up here, I was super excited," he said. "It's tough to turn down your hometown team, let alone when you've got a great opportunity like I have."

Steelers boost depth with signings of 3 from XFL

Pittsburgh added defensive tackle Cavon Walker and offensive tackle Jarron Jones from the XFL's New York Guardians and safety Tyree Kinnel from the DC Defenders.

The Steelers dipped into the pool of XFL talent for a second time Wednesday to sign offensive tackle Jarron Jones. The former Notre Dame defensive tackle was drafted by the N.Y. Guardians in the first round of the offensive line position and was the team's left tackle. Jones spent training camp or preseason with the Bills, Cowboys, Giants and Seahawks, but couldn't stick with any of them. The 6-6, 320-pound OT got much-needed OL reps in the XFL to compete for a roster spot in Pittsburgh.

The Steelers added more depth to their defensive line by signing XFL sack leader Cavon Walker to a one-year deal. Listed at 6-2, 284 pounds, Walker led the XFL with 4.5 sacks and nine quarterback hits as a member of the New York Guardians. The Maryland product went undrafted in 2018, but spent preseasons with the Bears and the Chiefs. Walker is the second defensive lineman added by the Steelers in free agency, joining former Baltimore DL Chris Wormley, who arrived in Pittsburgh via trade.

The Steelers entered free agency without much - if any - wiggle room in cap space, but got creative to sign three players and three key positions and trade for another.

The Steelers took on Chris Wormley's $2.3 million cap hit with the trade, filling up some of the space they created with the slew of restructures. The Steelers were operating with a thin margin for error on their defensive line last season after Tuitt went down. Hargrave filled in so well that he earned a major payday in free agency, making it necessary for the Steelers to find his replacement. With his starting experience and versatility, Wormley can certainly fill that role for the Steelers.

The Steelers needed a tight end who could be a threat in the receiving game and they got one by signing Ebron. In his six-year NFL career, Ebron has 3,195 yards and 27 receiving touchdowns. He also added two more rushing touchdowns. Drafted by the Lions in 2014 at No. 10 overall, Ebron made his first Pro Bowl appearance a year ago after finding a new life in Indianapolis. This move fortifies the Steelers' TEs in a major way and allows them to go back to using their signature two-tight end sets.

Big Ben: Throwing without pain; 'I feel younger'

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said in an interview that he hasn't had any pain in his surgically repaired elbow and is throwing the ball twice a week, 40 times a day for about 20 yards.

Adding Jordan Dangerfield is a smart move for the Steelers. He's on an inexpensive and low-risk, one-year deal, and not only is he a special teams whiz, his defensive position is one of need. The Steelers have strong starting safeties, but with the departure of Sean Davis, building depth behind Minkah Fitzpatrick and Terrell Edmunds is important. In playing 71% of special teams snaps, Dangerfield had 12 tackles and a forced fumble.
