Pro Football Focus says Matt Feiler is underrated, will get a 2-year contract worth $12 million




The Pittsburgh Steelers have a ton of unrestricted free agents heading into free agency in 2021. Their offensive line has been great in the pass protection game, but dead last in the running game. One unrestricted free agent the Steelers could lose is Matt Feiler. Although they do have Kevin Dotson the Steelers cannot afford to lose more offensive linemen heading into the offseason.


According to Pro Football Focus, Matt Feiler will get a decent contract in the 2021 offseason. They predict he will get a 2-year contract worth $12 million with $8 million guaranteed. Fieler has proved to be able to play either at guard or tackle throughout his time in Pittsburgh. He finished 5th among all right tackles in PFF's pass-blocking grades in 2019. He was also ranked 12th in that same metric among left guards in 2020.


Fieler plays better at tackle than playing guard. PFF predicts teams like the New York Giants or Minnesota Vikings should be in the market for a player like Matt Feiler. Both ranked 31st and 32nd in the NFL last season. It would be a loss if Matt Feiler left Pittsburgh because they're already thin on the offensive line, but no way would the Steelers be in the market to pay a contract to Fieler like the one PFF is predicting he will receive. It would be wise for the Steelers to offer him a contract that fits their budget and hope for the best.
