People still link Mitchell Schwartz to the Steelers

It's the offseason and here we go with linking the remaining Free-Agents to teams. In this case, I want to talk about Mitchell Schwartz being linked to the Pittsburgh Steelers by SB Nation's Arrowhead Pride. This article was written by Tom Childs.

Personally, I just don't see the Steelers trying to sign a 32-year player whose best years are behind him. Mitchell Schwartz was an elite-level talent who played on that Chiefs Super Bowl team, however, it would not be worth the cost/risk to bring him into the fold at 32 years of age.


Also, it's important to note that he was dealing with a back injury. I can imagine that is very painful and something that could linger for the remainder of his career. He missed 10 games last season including the Super Bowl against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


If he's healthy by the regular season and there are no concerns about injury, it would be hard to ignore him as a player and his experience. However, what worries me is the price that he might manifest. It would have to be a team-friendly deal.


The Steelers have lost their usual starters. However, those usual starters weren't very good last season. So, I'm happy to see the Steelers addressing their offensive line by resigning Zach Banner and grabbing a player like Trai Turner among others.


Rome wasn't built in a day, however, the window is closing. It might be worth looking into. He could end up being a great contributing player.
